Trillhaase: R’s Debate ‘Weirdest’ Stuff

JEERS … to Idaho Republican Party Chairman Norm Semanko. Last week, his party's central committee met in Boise and debated some of the weirdest stuff imaginable — declaring the courting of foreign investment to Idaho “subversive,” demanding the firing of any university president who resists arming college students with concealed guns or labeling Idaho “the Free-Market State.” So what happened? For some reason, Semanko's GOP website won't tell you. But we will. Foreign investment is safe. The guns on campus measure failed. Free-Market State? That passed/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. Full Cheers & Jeers column here.

Question: Do you have a cheer or jeer to give to an elected official this fine Friday the 13th?
