Flubbing Confab Doesn’t Stop Raul

Here's how not to win the race for majority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives: Run Congressman Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, for the post. That's the equivalent of casting Jonah Hill as James Bond, Vince Vaughn as Spider-Man and Ben Stiller as Captain Jack Sparrow. It makes about as much sense as signing up 5-foot-11 Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson as the San Antonio Spurs' power forward.Or handing Microsoft's Bill Gates a post-hole digger and telling him to get busy/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. Full editorial here.

Question: It appears to me that Congressman Labrador knows how to throw bombs but he doesn't know how to govern responsibly. Thoughts?
