Kevin: Keeping Tabs On Rex Rammell

Anyway, the caller says, everybody knows what Rex Rammell is all about, so why give him space on the opinion page? Her theory was that I ran the piece simply to stir up some controversy. Not so. First, since Rammell's arrest was a high-profile story, I thought it only fair to give him his say. Second, since Rammell has run for statewide office (and might quite possibly run again), I think it's important for voters to see Rammell as he presents himself. Including his weak "big-box retailer" defense, and his over-the-top tasteless Nazi analogy. Perhaps this is all old news to the Idahoans who have long since pegged Rammell as a wingnut and a blowhard. I do know this much: 42,436 Idahoans voted for this guy in the May Republican primary. The media has a responsibility to help voters know what they're doing/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: I agree w/Kevin that the media should keep tabs on wingnut & former U.S. Senator/governor candidate Rex Rammell. How about you?
