For comic relief….there is NOTHING that beats living next door to Idaho……
Yet the real sad thing is that while this seems funny to normal people, this is how the teabaggers, Republicans and frankly most people in Idaho, especially Northern Idaho actually think….if you could call it thinking.
‘Sheriff’s deputies in Anderson County said the victim, 26-year-old Blake Wardell, had been hanging out in a garage with about eight to 10 friends early Wednesday when they decided to try out the Kevlar vest’.
‘The victim’s friends performed CPR until paramedics arrived about 2:45 a.m., but Wardell was pronounced dead at the scene’.
‘Kelly was arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter, which carries a possible five-year prison term, if she’s convicted’.
‘Deputies said they found no evidence of heavy alcohol or drug use’.

You have to …or SHOULD be asking yourself….why is it that Republicans DON’T want us to know who is giving to their campaigns???
Washington (CNN) — ‘Senate Republicans again Tuesday blocked Democratic legislation that would require greater transparency into who is behind much of the secretive, often negative campaign advertising filling the airwaves this election season’.
‘Supporters of the DISCLOSE Act mustered 53 votes in an effort to advance the bill, but fell short of the 60 needed to break a GOP filibuster. Democrats unanimously supported the bill, while Republicans voted unanimously against it. The legislation, which needs 60 votes to succeed, failed on a 51-44 vote Monday’.

WASHINGTON — ‘Frustrated by the “sewer” of modern American political campaigns, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Wednesday said that he would bring a constitutional amendment to the floor granting Congress the ability to set strict new limits on campaign contributions, warning he will force multiple votes if necessary to pass the measure’.
“When I came to Congress, when you got money you had to list who you got it from, what their occupation was, address, and phone numbers if you had it. Then I saw things change”.
‘Then the Supreme Court handed down the Citizens United ruling, Reid said, opening the flood gates to hundreds of millions of largely unregulated money to SuperPACs. “It was as if I had jumped into the sewer … it’s awful what has happened.”
