James Bond (RE: Fort Boise: Idaho's loss, Raul's gain): There is no question that Popkey was largely considered to be a prototypical liberal journalist by the establishment Republican crowd in Idaho. This turns that on its head. He may well be liberal in his personal views, but he just took a position with a right-wing, Tea Party guy! I bet there's plenty of grumbling going on in the offices of the other congressionals today. In a way, with Popkey's history of taking on the establishment and Labrador's anti-establishment pedigree, this is a poetic, predictable ending to a three-decade career in journalism. You're a flack now, Dan! FLACK!
Question: Has Popkey sold out?
