Joker: ‘Embrace The Insanity’

Joker comments: Have you ever heard the voice of God, Great Spirit or something out of this world command you? I heard a voice last night. At first I ignored the voice. Then the voice got louder. Finally, I gave in. I let the voice speak to me – it was a like a chorus of angels or a heavenly symphony – so beautiful. The voice told me I needed to vote for some messengers of madness in the Republican Primary, specifically Kootenai County commissioner candidate Larry Spencer, Kootenai County sheriff candidate John Green and Kootenai County Prosecutor candidate Donald Gary. Now some of you may think I am crazy for supporting these candidates – I am not. I have looked madness in the eye and it told me that we need to “embrace the insanity” and elect these guys. More below.


What’s the worst that could happen? North Idaho makes the national news? Great! We need the attention. A few lawsuits? The county has civil lawyers who aren’t doing much – they could use the work. Nothing gets done? Congress has been doing nothing for decades.

We have a dream ticket: Spencer, Green and Gary. I am counting on the public to listen to the voices inside their heads. Don’t be afraid. Don’t look away. Embrace the insanity.
