Politics for Dummies, brought to you by Dan Gookin


In typical clumsy fashion,

Coeur d’Alene city councilman stuck his foot in his mouth yet again. In an excellent letter to the editor to the CDA Press by Kootenai County Republican precinct commiteeman Bruce Maddux, Gookin said the following in the comment section:

“Bruce, I’m sorry the KCRCC is dysfunctional. There.  BTW, you are not an elected official. You are a party official. See? Dysfunction.”

Um, hold the phone Dan it seems that Mr. Maddux in fact received 58 votes to defeat contender David Hill, who had 56. Gee golly Mister Gookin, seems someone needs to give you a copy of Politics for Dummies.

And in case the book doesn’t sink in, here is a link to the results from the 2012 primary for Kootenai County.

In our continued series chuckling at the CDA Fab Five (Dan-O, you’ve been promoted!) and their selfish decision, we present  another great cartoon. Let’s get these clowns outta office, and elect a council and mayor that will overturn this idiotic law.

balanceNote from Chester: We love the art getting churned out by this local artist, he’s sent us several more images to use. Don’t know if it’s coincidence or not, but the fellow (gal???) on the left slightly resembles DooFo!

“On every question of construction, let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”

— Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, June 12, 1823
