Tribune: Vito Veto

Marty Trillhaase/Lewiston Tribune gives Jeers … to state Rep. Vito Barbieri, R-Dalton Gardens (pictured). Here's what Barbieri thinks of state government's primary obligation — the education of your children: “If you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and God, then pull your kids out of that Godless institution.” Barbieri deliberated over this quip, wrote it down and published it on his website. When his Democratic challenger, Cheryl Stransky, also of Dalton Gardens, pressed him about it during a debate, he didn't retreat: “My words exactly.” Then he launched into a call for a tax credit to “allow an alternative to this public school system that is certainly serving a purpose, but there are questions about the curriculum, and that's what I'm concerned with”/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune.

Question: Will Rep. Phil Hart replace Rep. Phil Hart as the uberconservative lighting rod in the Idaho Legislature?
