Joe: Campaigners Hit Wrong Church

Joe Butler: There's some swing voters who attend St. George in Post Falls who may now be voting D Tuesday — following one of the masses (Sunday), the cars in the parking lot had fliers on their windows from a pro-life group extolling the advantages of Labrador. The buzz at the post-mass coffee gathering was this stunt may have had opposite effect. Using a church as a place to campaign is a cheap, maybe even an illegal move. Shoving litter on everyone's windshield where they aren't there to say “no thanks” isn't real bright either. Plus since it was a rainy day, you saw a lot of obviously enthused people trying to peel off a soaked gray blob from their windshield. Oh, and don't forget the bold assumption that just because the Catholic Church maintains a strong pro-life position, therefore everyone who attends in Post Falls just has to be strongly pro-life and ready to vote for Raul. I'm not saying how I'm voting but I will say, well done, Labrador supporters.

Question: Did any of you get your car window papered with campaign literature while you attended worship services Sunday?
