Butch’s Way: Ignore Pro-Ed Rabble

Is it not incumbent upon supporters — and especially Otter, the fellow with the biggest bully pulpit in the Statehouse — to articulate their case? This is the same governor who, after state superintendent Tom Luna reported his car was vandalized, waxed eloquent about “the Idaho way” of engaging in vigorous disagreement on the issues. I guess the new “Idaho way” is to dismiss the opposition as misinformed rabble. So much for celebrating the common wisdom of the electorate/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: What do you make of Gov. Butch Otter's statements, actions, and lack thereof during the education debate in the Idaho Legislature?
