Toby sez Edinger’s a ‘Democrat’

Toby Schindelbeck, the ex-Californian from Chico who arrived in Coeur d'Alene wishin'/hopin'/prayin' that some constituency would elect him to something, has targeted long-time Councilman Ron Edinger in Schindelbeck's first campaign literature. In one point on his red-white-and-blue flier Toby sez of Edinger: "Toby's opponent is a 45-year politician and a registered Democrat." If Schindelbeck really wanted to play dirty, I suppose he could point out that Edinger is an ex-Californian. Oh wait. (You can see the other side of this flier in the comments section)

Question: Here we go ago. Toby & his handlers are bringing partisan politics back into a nonpartisan race. Thoughts?
