Wonkette & ‘Idaho Paranoid Stupid’

Wonkette, the left-leaning online mag, is having a field day with Idaho's latest flirtation with IDAHO PARANOID STUPID:

This latest outbreak of Idaho Paranoid Stupid, it turns out, also has a connection to another recent episode of the illness: Nuxoll (pictured) and three other legislators went to meet state attorneys and the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare to express their worries about Foreign Sharia creeping into Idaho’s child support system shortly after Rep. Vito Barbieri hosted a briefing for a dozen Republicans called “The True Face of Islam in Idaho,” which inspired one county GOP newsletter to warn that Muslims were targeting Idaho for a takeover. Obviously, we have us a Sharia Crisis right here in the Gem State, and some legislators are doing all they can to put a stop to it, even if it means dismantling the state’s generally efficient and effective child-support system.
