Mary: ‘Straighten Up, People’

All that Kootenai County Republican Central Committee infighting has rattled Mary Souza at In her latest newsletter, Souza urges her followers -- both of them -- to keep their eyes on the prize"honest, smaller, more fiscally responsible government that promotes individual responsibility, states’ rights and the values upon which this country was established" (especially as far as the 1st Congressional District race is concerned). Admonishes Mary: "We say we want better government, but we are letting internal rifts get in the way. We are grabbing for power and scuffling on the sidelines while the big game is playing out on the field. It’s time to straighten up, people.  Dust off the offenses and tuck in your egos.  The team needs our support!" Siss, boom, bah. More here.

Question: What do you make of Mary drawing attention to the deep rift in the local Republican Party?
