Huckleberries Scares Local GOP

Seems Chairman Neil Oliver and the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee have been spooked by Huckleberries Online. They don't like having proposed resolutions aired and discussed here prior to their monthly meetings. (Think: resolution to declare Idaho to be a "Christian state"). In an effort to thwart Huckleberries, the local GOP brain trust didn't circulate proposed resolutions prior to last night's meeting. The tin gods of the organization sprung the resolutions on the precinct committee men and women at the meeting. Which caused some of the Elephants to huff and puff. Some believe, ah, incredibly, that the organization should err on the side of disclosure and be transparent. While others said that first drafts of legislation are secret -- and the resolutions should be, too. If Grand Poohbah Neil & Co. had been paying attention, they would have known that I was on vacation last week. They didn't need to sneak around with their silly resolutions. Huckleberries, it seems, is living rent free in some alleged minds out there.
