Richert Names 2011 “Award” Winners

Opinionator Kevin Richert of the Idaho Statesman has posted his list of "award winners" for 2011 on his newspaper blog. "Winners" include Idaho GOP Chairman Norm Semanko, who wins the "Political Thud of the Year Award." Reasoning? "A City Council incumbent and state GOP chairman runs for mayor of Eagle. He secures some prominent local endorsements. Then he goes out and gets 22 percent of the vote. The word 'ouch' somehow rings inadequate." You can read the rest of Kevin's list  here.

Question: Who do you believe will experience the greatest pratfall in local/county/state politics in 2012?
