Clark: From Spud State To Stud State

Before we explore the ins and outs of how the Republican governor of Idaho wound up in an unrated soft-core sex flick, allow me a moment to pose a simple question. Isn’t “Butch Otter” about the best-ever name for a porn star? I’m just saying. Anyway, while you think that over, I’ll explain the gist of the big Spud State news that was buzzing about the Internet on Friday, generated by a story by the Idaho Falls Post Register. Back in 1993, while he was Idaho’s lieutenant governor, Otter landed the credited and speaking role of a corrupt sheriff in a low-budget horse opera that was shot around Weiser. The Post Register suggested that Otter got the part because the director liked his rugged Idaho looks. I don’t know. There could be a much simpler explanation as to why a Hollywood director would let an elected official portray a corrupt sheriff. Typecasting/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: Do you think more/less/same of Gov Butch Otter, now that we've learned he was in a soft-porn movie?
