Sho-Con: Rammell Is Idaho’s Lohan

Shoshone Conservative: Rex Rammell is to Idaho politics what Lindsey Lohan and Britney Spears are to entertainment - like watching a trainwreck in slow motion. Before, yeah, there was the whole misguided independent Senate campaign, and, yeah, he said some stupid things (“Obama tag”), but, on the whole, nothing goofier than Biden or Bachmann. And his views weren’t any further “out there” than most of the Idaho Right. But, now - it’s like he’s had some sort of nervous breakdown or something. Seriously. The guy needs professional help.

Question: Which other Idaho/national leaders do you consider as extreme as Rammell?

Clark: U.S Spirit Needs More Sheen

Charlie Sheen has been on a lot of talk shows lately and, quite frankly, he’s been painful to watch. Yeah, the poor guy appears to be off the crack and back in control. Aw, Charlie, say it ain’t so. I know. That sounds harsh. It’s fashionable to act horrified when famous people veer off the rails or – in Sheen’s case – blow like an aerosol can of bug spray left too close to a campfire. I’m talking about …

  • Lindsay Lohan handcuffed and hoosegow-bound.
  • Britney Spears shaving her head into a cue ball.
  • Anthony Weiner mass-texting his, um, sausage photos.
  • Larry Craig tap-tapping for man love in an airport toilet stall.

“Outrageous,” we huff. “Disgusting!” we puff. Aw, come off it. Be honest. You revel in these celebrity psycho soap operas as much as I do. But I’m here to tell you that it’s not wrong to feel this way/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: Do you enjoy seeing celebrities and politicians crash and burn, deep down?
