HBO — To SteveS RE: Election Start-Up

SteveS: "Wow ... was I blown away ... I was returning from taking Sophomore Son back to UIdaho (Sunday) ... had just finished listening to Gonzaga squeak by USD (Senior Daughter's
soon-to-be alma mater) ... when I saw this ha-huge billboard for Sheila Sorensen for 1st District Congress ... It's visible northbound on US95, just before you hit the 4-lane at
Fightin' Creek! The race is on!

DFO: Alas, the long winter of our discontent has given way to a gaggle of honking pols who now want to be our best friends -- until they get elected to office and begin holding power lunches with future Abramoffs (Washington), using campaign credit cards to buy person items (Boise), kowtowing to state Republican leaders (legislative), or jumping at the command of the local Powers That Be. I'm beginning to wonder if it matters a heckuva lot re: whom we vote in.
