Today’s fun video: Maddow on Idaho GOP convention

 

Normally, one wouldn't expect for MSNBC's Rachel Maddow to mention the Idaho Republican convention, let alone do a whole segment on it. It would be sort of like expecting Fox's Sean Hannity to do a segment on Seattle's $15 minimum wage.

But Maddow seemed to delight in the Idaho GOP's meltdown in Moscow, possibly in part because it gave her a chance to play snippets from the Idaho gubernatorial debate which remains a favorite on the Internet.

It's probably not because she enjoys showing off The Spokesman-Review logo and headlines. But hey, it's a free plug and we'll take it.

Shea’s trip highlighted by MSNBC

MSNBC, though liberal commentator's Rachel Maddow's blog, is featuring Spokane Valley state Rep. Matt Shea after he appeared at a survivalist rally over the weekend.

Shea's comments at the rally, as reported by the Coeur d'Alene Press, are similar to ones he's made at other events in the last few years. His views were known when he easily won reelection last year, and he was backed for reelection by U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Spokane.
