Trib: Idaho Senator May Need Help

On the Lewiston Tribune editorial page today, Marty Trillhaase addresses state Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll's borrowed scheme to deny a second term to President Barack Obama:

OK, Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood. Take a breath. Take another. And one more. Get out a large, brown paper grocery bag. Inhale and exhale into it. Keep at it until the excessive carbon dioxide molecules escape your bloodstream and the panic convulsions cease. Feeling better? Good. Now let's talk. Let's talk about the grand American experiment in self-government. It works like this: Every four years, the people of this country holler, debate, insult each other and then file into the polling booths to elect a president. Usually the candidate with the most votes wins. If not, the candidate who carried the most electoral votes prevails. Let's face it: This year, you're - well - pissed about the outcome. President Barack Obama got almost 4 million more votes than Mitt Romney. He carried 332 electoral votes -- 62 more than needed. More here. (Idaho Legislature photo: Sheryl Nuxoll)

Question: Do you know anyone else who buys into this goofy idea?
