In a strange twist of events the Repub ReOrg meeting last night included…much to the surprise of everyone…especially Brent Regan…the nomination of Brent Regan for County Chair. That was followed by the nomination of Little Loukey Malek.
Of course, after waiting for nominations to close and giving a rousing talk on Party Unity, Brent withdrew his name from nomination for the sake of Unity! Way to go Brent…showing unity by being united behind Neil!!! Whoot Whoot!
Little Loukey ran to the podium as quickly as his little pegs would carry him…to withdraw his name too…in the name of “unity”…what ever Luke…and to save his little behind from suffering a second political humiliation and a sound behind whuppin!
Hey…Luke, did you congratulate Toby on his election as State Committeeman??? Didn’t think so…and of course what we have to say is….Toby! Toby! Toby! Toby!
The LiePAC Mopes were suspiciously quiet last night…any guesses why? Licking their wounds I suppose. Even the Flatulent Photographer was conspicuously absent last night…wattsamatter Doo-ane…still crying in your beer????
Honorable mentions to Tom Robinson and Michael Scott…two solid Conservatives that we’re proud to have on our team!
The “Titan Publishing Group” also doing business under “Titan Books” says they don’t know who Jeff Ward is and they don’t do business with him….So, we were wondering…conspiring minds do that you know…just exactly what is “Titan Group Publishing Company” that Jeff Ward claims to be President of?
Where and when were they established? Who are the other owners? Are they incorporated and if so in what state???? It’s not Washington or Idaho, cause we checked.
What are you up to Jeff? We would like to know!
Every once in awhile the team at Chuckle Berries put on our bio-hazard suits and trudge through the putrid swamp known as Huckleberries Online. Guarded by a grumpy old troll that goes by the moniker D.F.O… that’s Dumb Freaking Oaf to you pilgrim…or DooFo as we like to call it. Along the way we chat with fellow conservatives that monitor the swamp’s decay rate, and check to make sure their suits are up to par (Shoshone, Summer, Jennifer, Right Girl, stay strong).
In our last trip into the swamp we noticed the lost souls held under DooFo’s spell chanting the mantra, “Low Voter Turn Out. Low Voter Turn Out.” By DooFo’s side was his comrade Bet-Spray Russell, with her sharp Lillith like tongue leading their legion of radical oppressors into a frothing fury, loud enough to be heard across the state.
Well folks, it’s time to simmer down for a moment and analyze what this mysterious message might mean. Absolutely nothing. While DooFo and Bet-Spray keep screaming the same foul thing, they don’t know what it means. They think low voter turn out is responsible for their good ole boy forces of Sauron taking a big hit in Kootenai County. Let’s take a looksy.
On May 20, 2014 the voter turn out for Kootenai County was 21.72% of registered voters for a grand total of 14,962 casting a vote. In the 2012 Primary a total of 14,811 people cast a vote, for a total of 21.22% of registered voters.
Nice try DooFo, low voter turn out wasn’t the key. A half percent more voters turned out at the polls this time. And still the Shire was saved from your dark forces.
That’s not enough you say? You’d like to have had Kootenai County match the 25% turn out seen in all of Idaho? Okie-dokie, lets look at that. Let’s pretend voter turn out was 3.28% higher what would that mean? To make it slanted to DooFo’s side, let’s further pretend the entire new 3.28% voted for his favored candidates. Well the truth be told, it wouldn’t have changed a thing. The closest race his side lost was for County Treasurer by a margin of 4.44%. Even if 10% more voters turned out and voted for their candidates , most of the good guys would have still won.
Nice try DooFo and Bet-Spray. Now let’s dive into the ancient scrolls of Huckleberry Swamp. First we had to distract Doo-ane, and look for the old rotten stump guarded by Thom George to see if they shed any more light on the subject.
The day after the 2012 Primary DooFo felt like a king. He spent the next week gloating how reasonably minded people voted our good friend Phil Hart out, and defeated John Green, Don Gary, Marc Eberlein, and Larry Spencer. In fact he had this to say for his hump-day wildcard on May 16, 2012: “Can’t stop smiling today. Kootenai County & North Idaho haven’t consumed the Kool-aid that would veer this great region into political chaos. In fact, there are signs all around that local Republicans are turning away from Far Right excess…” DooFo May 16, 2012 Link.
Y’see, the problem isn’t low voter turn out. When his side wins, it’s because the voters were well informed. Well DooFo, the voters in Kootenai County have grown tired of your good ole boy network and bull-butter. An increased voter turn out overwhelmingly voted to rid the land of the ghouls he calls friends.
Before signing off look over this post he made May 18, 2012 when he pontificated that the Tea Party was over in Kootenai County. LINK
