Oh Helen . . .

With the obligatory proviso that this is not a political blog, may I recommend to you this depressing but amusing article about some of the people that my home state chooses to send to Congress? To give this post a real pop culture slant, any of you remember the West Wing episode where a Senator from Idaho threatened to hold up military promotions until he gets a nice little boondoggle for the state? Yeah, that was based on a real incident with Larry Craig, mentioned in the article. (My dad was a fraternity brother of Craig's at the University of Idaho. It's a really small state.)

Did you read the article about how she died? She was riding in a car holding her 5-month old grandson on her lap, and not wearing a seatbelt. On the one hand, it's good to see that she held true to her nut job values. On the other hand, what the hell?

Who would have thought that Helen Chenoweth and Briteny Spears would be so similar?

They're both just country folk.
