Huckleberries: Idaho Last In Pol Clout

Idaho doesn’t fare well in that “United States of Shame” chart making the rounds in the blogosphere. The chart, provided by the Pleated Jeans blog, offers a theory that every state ranks last on some list. Someone, for example, has ranked Idaho last in terms of congressional delegation clout. But the Gem State fares better than other nearby states. Somewhere out there is a list that sez North Dakota has the ugliest residents. Montana allegedly has the most drunken drivers. Utah, believe it or not, rates last in online wholesomeness, leading the states on one list in rate of Web porn subscriptions. And Washington? The Evergreen State ranks worst for bestiality, leading the country in the number of human-animal hookup cases in 2010, with four. We Idahoans, I suppose, should be pleased that our failure involves politics rather than unwholesome affection for critters/DFO, Huckleberries, SR. More here.

Question: Now that the Republicans are in power in the House, do you think Idaho's political delegation still ranks last in terms of clout?
