Trib: No More Rex To Kick Around

How will Idaho ever survive without Rex Rammell? Says the itinerant politician who abandoned eastern Idaho for the promise of elective office from north central Idaho: You'll just have to try. After this region turned thumbs down on his legislative ambitions in the May 15 primary, Rammell decided to head into the sunset - make that, sunrise - and go east, young man, to Torrington, Wyo. He's lined up a new career as a veterinarian at the Torrington Livestock Auction. "I've kind of given up on Idaho, to be right honest with you," Rammell told the Tribune's Kathy Hedberg. "Nothing's ever going to change here and people are just going to continue to suffer and I don't want to be a part of it." Nor is this the first batch of sour grapes from Rammell/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here. (SR file photo of Rex Rammell in Sandpoint)

Question: Now that Rex Rammell has left Idaho ... who do you think is the most annoying current Idaho politician?
