Define Far Right in Idaho? (Opinion)

Define “far-right”?  I get paid to offer opinions."And newsmen and women wonder why they’re trusted as much as a typical garden slug"

On radio and in a weekly newspaper column.  News reporters have opinions but are supposed to keep them out of their stories.  The following news blurb from the Associated Press is an example of the blurring of the lines:

 

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho House came to a surprise halt Monday after the state’s far-right lawmakers took aim at bill to bring Idaho’s notary public procedures in line with other states _ measures they fear could erode the nation’s and Idaho’s sovereignty. That faction of Idaho’s GOP tends to be leery of any bills from the Uniform Law Commission, a group who drafts model laws to ease interstate and international interactions.

 

And newsmen and women wonder why they’re trusted as much as a typical garden slug.  I guess the AP is then OK with me describing the outfit as ACU for Amalgamated Communist Union.  Possibly even in news stories because from my perspective they appear as anti-capitalist, cross dressing America haters.  Feel free to e-mail me your thoughts at bill.colley@townsquaremedia.com.

By the way, Idaho Representative Priscilla Giddings felt the wrath of her establishment colleagues when she was forced to read a bill aloud for over an hour because she expressed an objection.  Somehow leadership can’t see how this plays with the folks back home and the constitutional wing of the party.  Or that women are receiving the brunt of the disciplinary action this session.  Way to go, guys!  Maybe when A-10 pilot Giddings isn’t defending the United States she can make Mike Moyle a sandwich.
