Trib: Going Along To Get Along

In an editorial entitled “For Idaho GOP, integrity means going along,” Marty Trillhaase (pictured) of the Lewiston Tribune writes: “You know Idaho's dominant political party is having a bad day when its platform reads like it was written by people who spend too much time with their cats, watching Fox News and not getting enough fresh air. Now these several hundred political shut-ins want to set policy for the rest of us. Even worse, a lot of Republicans are too timid to stand up to them.” (BTW, I really like that line about cats.) Marty then goes on to break down the foolishness embedded in the Idaho Republican Party platform. Full editorial here.

Question: Have you ever studied the Idaho Republican Party platform to see whether you agree with it?
