Trib: Jeers To Goedde

In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, opinionator Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune offers jeers to state Sen. John Goedde, R-Coeur d'Alene -- for introducing legislation to make Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" required reading in Idaho schools. Not to be outdone, Trillhaase offered some suggestions re: what other legislators might require to be read if they were chairman of the Senate Education Committee, as Goedde is:

  • From House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star: "Dracula."
  • From the heavily outnumbered House Democrats: "The Mouse That Roared."
  • From Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood, who doesn't know the difference between the Holocaust and Obamacare: "20th Century History for Dummies."
  • From Sen. Chuck Winder, R-Boise, who thinks women seeking abortions first should undergo vaginal probes: "Nineteen Eighty-Four."
  • From House Speaker Scott Bedke, R-Oakley, who toppled former Speaker (Boss) Lawerence Denney: "The Godfather."
  • And from Lewiston's long-distance city councilor, Republican Rep. Thyra Stevenson: "A Tale of Two Cities." Full Cheers & Jeers column here.

Question: Any other suggestions?
