Tea-publican Flyer Targets Commish

Here's a postcard being circulated by a Tea-publican running for a GOPrecinct Committee post in the Hayden area. I can't remember if I posted this postcard before. But it sure seems consistent with material that comes out of the Tea-publican playbook — attack, attack, attack. Commissioners, for example, are blasted above for offering a ballot item to streamline county government — as they'd been lobbied to do for years. I opposed the item. But I understand that commissioners, especially Dan Green, were fulfilling a campaign promise to put it on the ballot. Some local Tea-publicans, of course, don't know that history since they haven't lived here all that long. I'm also amused that many of the Tea-publicans behind literature like this wrap themselves in the flag and religion. Seems inconsistent to me.

Question: Do you think the two Tea-publican GOPrimary candidates for commissioners — David Stewart and Marc Eberlein — can do a better job than Commissioners Todd Tondee & Jai Nelson?
