Letter to the editor
To the editor,
The 2018 Idaho governor’s race suggests a paraphrase of the famous first line of the “Communist Manifesto”: “Progressives of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but Idaho’s chains!”
The governor’s race here is not taking place in a corner. Idaho has a reputation, and you can bet that the right-thinking people from far beyond our borders see an opportunity to open purses and bring enlightenment to the gun-toting, Bible-quoting, overbreeding, white male chauvinistic, flag-waving Idaho masses. How? Put a Democratic governor in office. And this goal is entirely apart from any personal or ideological characteristic of the candidate.
So, watch out, Idaho…here comes the money!
