This just in: the Internet is not a fad.
Phoning it In
In case you haven't heard, the Idaho Democratic Party wants to forego real speeches from our candidates at the upcoming Frank Church Banquet in favor of Youtube-style videos. Cost to you: $75, rubber chicken included.
Former Twin Falls resident Julie Fanselow is up in arms, and I don't blame her.
I went to banquets featuring speeches from Cecil Andrus, J. D. Williams, Richard Stallings, Larry LaRocco and Larry EchoHawk: all elected officials at the time. They were fine.
That's FIVE. And they're complaining about four, three of which are there to nail Bill Sali?
I'm having a hard time justifying $75 to go as it is, and I have a free place in Boise to stay. I'm having a harder time justifying it now. If I may be so bold, Kos isn't that interesting.
Go sign Julie's petition to stop the madness. Don't donate; just enter your information, click "Sign Petition" and be done with it.
This is the kind of stupidity that makes us a minority. I can hear the ghost of Frank Gooding laughing now ...
