To everything there is a season. Wackaloon season is over.

Bang the drum slowly, play the pipe lowly: a great Idaho political icon, batshit crazy Christian supremacist state Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, lost her reelection bid in Idaho’s Republican primary election Tuesday. It is unknown whether Nuxoll will now quietly fade away or will seek to spread her brand of intolerant religious paranoia on a grander scale.

Elected to the Idaho House in 2010 and then the state Senate in 2012, Nuxoll first gained national attention in 2013 when she explained how insurance companies’ participation in Obamacare was exactly like the Holocaust:

The insurance companies are creating their own tombs. Much like the Jews boarding the trains to concentration camps, private insurers are used by the feds to put the system in place because the federal government has no way to set up the exchange. Several years from now, the federal government will want nothing to do with private insurance companies. The feds will have a national system of health insurance and they will pull the trigger on the insurance companies.

See? Completely the same thing, and Nuxoll, as a good Republican who never feared to tell the truth as it existed in her head, refused to back down or apologize, insisting “There is no disrespect for any group or people with the analogy … I just want people to know the truth.” And the truth, as she saw it, was that Hitler rounded up the Jews and forced them to have subsidized health care. Or maybe that Blue Cross should be given guns so it can fight back.

In 2014, Nuxoll backed a failed bill declaring Idaho had the authority to opt out of any EPA regulations the state didn’t care for, because as everyone knows, states don’t have to follow federal environmental regulations if they don’t wanna. The bill was specifically aimed at deregulating “suction dredge mining,” but Nuxoll, with her characteristic logic, tried to spin nullifying federal environmental law into a matter of Defending Our Vets:

“EPA just wants control, they want power,” Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood, told the committee. She said veterans are “precious to us,” and many veterans find it “soothing” to do recreational suction dredge mining. “They’re trying to control us, and they’re trying to control our vets also,” she said.

Lord knows there are few things the EPA enjoys more than ruining veterans’ recreational gold mining, unless maybe it’s destroying good-paying jobs to protect some stupid owls.

Nuxoll made national news again in 2015 when she walked out of the Senate chamber rather than have to hear a Hindu clergyman give the day’s invocation. She followed up that walkout by proclaiming Hinduism a “false faith with false gods.” Not surprisingly, she refused to apologize, telling the American Family Association’s “news” site,

“I just feel like I can’t apologize for something I believe in,” she tells OneNewsNow. “I may not have been politically correct in my terminology, on one little sentence, but how can I apologize for what I believe in?”

After religious leaders from all over the region condemned her comments, Nuxoll was at least willing to clarify, though she still refused to apologize:

[Nuxoll] said she didn’t mean to say Hinduism was “false religion,” just that it’s based on “false gods.”
“I said it was a religion with false gods,” Nuxoll said. “I’m not going to give an apology.”

It’s that kind of clear-eyed distinction that made her a hero to rightwing Christians everywhere. She also explained that she didn’t have anything personal against the heathen Hindoo dervish or whatever the cleric thinks he is, but explained she couldn’t be true to her oath of office if she let such abominations take place on the floor of the Senate:

“He can say a prayer anywhere he wants in the Capitol,” but, “I’m in a floor session bound to follow the Constitution. … It is a Christian nation based on Christian principles. To start out our day, we usually say a Christian prayer. I would’ve been fine if we had also had a Christian prayer.”

Now there’s a woman who knows how to defend what she thinks is in the Constitution.

Later that year, Nuxoll closed out the legislative session by leading Republicans in a last-minute refusal to authorize Idaho’s child-support system, because she and others, panicked by the specter of creeping Sharia, feared the law would allow foreign courts to interfere with Idaho child support enforcement. The sudden collapse of the bill endangered almost $46 million in federal funding for programs that processed child support payments and tracked down deadbeat parents. Nuxoll somehow got it in her head that a provision in the law authorizing international recovery of child support might be used by Muslim countries to subject Idaho parents to Sharia law. Never mind that none of the countries that have signed onto that treaty actually have Sharia courts, it was still a very scary prospect. The legislature adjourned with no resolution, and had to be called back into special session, at not-inconsiderable expense, to finally approve the law. As of yet, no Idaho children have yet been kidnapped by ISIS in lieu of child support payments.

Ms. Nuxoll was also among several state Senators who attended a special briefing about “The True Face of Islam in Idaho,” which resulted in a panic about Muslim refugees being used as an invasion force to turn Idaho into part of the caliphate. That particular paranoid frenzy led pants-wetting Idaho militias to demonstrate against the specter of dozens of Syrian refugees possibly coming to the state and then doing Sharia all over the place.

Nuxoll closed out her legislative career — though she didn’t know it at the time — with a 2016 bill to permit the Bible to be used in Idaho schools as an educational resource in all classes, including of course the study of “astronomy, biology, geology,” and other sciences. Thank heaven she managed to get that sucker passed and signed by Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter before it was too late, so children can learn what the book of Genesis has to say about the dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark. Correction: Our Google-fu is bad: we looked up the bill number and thought it had been signed, but that was actually an unrelated 2014 bill with the same number. Nuxoll’s Bible bill was vetoed. Wonkette regrets the error!

In very low-turnout voting Tuesday, Noxoll lost her primary to Carl Crabtree, a rancher from Grangeville who has served as president of the Idaho Cattle Association and the Idaho Beef Council. He touted his three decades of service as the Idaho County Weed Supervisor as proof of his ability to get diverse groups to work together, so there’s that. We don’t know much more about Crabtree, but from his background, it sounds like he’ll be a reliably conservative pro-agriculture vote, and not nearly as entertaining as Sheryl Nuxoll. In the November general election, Crabtree will face Democrat Ken Meyers, a retired professor of veterinary medicine who promises he won’t “waste legislators’ time and taxpayers’ money on inconsequential issues or issues already decided by the Supreme Court” — obviously, Meyers was expecting to run against Nuxoll. Meyers also says he thinks climate change is real and Idaho’s ag industry needs to prepare for it, so he’s probably toast.

Pour out a forty of non-alcoholic beer, America. Idaho has lost one of its prime sources of political theater, and now we’ll have to rely on the rest of the state legislature for our springtime spectaculars of crazy. We have a feeling they’ll be up to the job.

    Is there a limit on crazy for Idaho politicians, like if they aren’t wacko enough you have to throw them back until they reach the crazy limit?

        It’s not metal. Just beat into a dome by God like a metal shield. It’s special firmament/raqia material. It has windows too to let the Sun and Moon pass through plus to open to let the waters above flood the Earth and kill every thing that can’t fit on an ark.

    “Recreational suction dredge mining” is a nifty hobby, where one person can rip up hundreds of square yards of river bottom every day, mix it up violently, and dump it all back on the bottom, minus a smidgen of gold. A dozen such “hobbyists” can trash a whole lot of river over the course of a season. Critters that live on the bottom, and salmon eggs, don’t vote, so it’s all good.

      Trump, neither, obviously. Trump never saw an insurance scam he didn’t like if he could get in on the action. As President, he can.

      Neither party wants to touch single payer with a ten thousand foot pole.

      If we want single payer, we’ll have to blow those parties to smithereens.

      I speak figuratively, of course. I only advocate violence in the privacy of my bathroom, after I sweep it for bugs and verify that, alas, I’m alone in there.

      • nah, aca actually is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. not for next year or the year after, but the trajectory is towards centralization and single payer. and the more the red states refuse to be part of it, the more their states get a federal solution.

        that’s why republicans are so terrified of it.

    And the Fed’ral Gubmint’s gonna PULL THE TRIGGER, and take over healthcare in the US? Is this like Medicare for all?

    Please! Please! Pull the trigger! Take the trillion dollar lobby DOWN!

    Correction: In a rare moment of lucidity, the governor vetoed Bangs Nutball’s Bible bill.

    • doktorzoom

      You are correct! I’ll update.

      For once, I thought I’d actually fact-checked something before i wrote it, but damned if I didn’t google the bill number, click on the ID legislature website, and see that Butch had signed SB 1321. The completely unrelated 2014 bill with that number.

  • FZsdaughter

    Carlin was right, there IS too much democracy; in a country where it’s perfectly legal to allow the Evil Rich to pay for the Stupids to hold office, you can be sure that’s going to be on the increase until even the pretense of Constitutional government disappears.

  • Master Contrail Program

    A dozen years ago, I went to Tampa’s late and lamented Halloween street party as Redneck Dracula. The cheap Party City mullet wig I wore, looked better than this lady’s hair. Even after I drove over it a few times to tease it up just right.

  • fawkedifiknow

    Maybe Bill Kristol will recommend her to Trump for VP, just like he did for McCain and Palin. She appears to fill the bill, and now she’s got some free time to campaign.

    • urgelt

      And she’s not a quitter! No siree, if you want her out of the job you have to throw her out.

      I bet there are deep claw marks on the hardwood floor of her office and a few nearby busted eardrums. This is one nutbag who will not go quietly.

    • Rickyphoo

      Well, she certainly has fucked up hair like Trump.

      Hey, Sheryl, the 1980s called. They want their hair style back!

    She’s the winner? That’s a might stiff competition. Also, the former publisher of the Idaho County Free Press in Grangeville is an awesome guy and a superb drinker.

      98% Catholic. German Catholic, to be precise.

    Hindus, Christians, etc. From this side of the fence it looks like a bunch of grown adults arguing about the color of Santa’s fucking hat. But par for the course here in Idaho.

    • Gerry

      Actually, what I thought was funny about Nuxoll’s walking out during the invocation is that she’s one of these folks who tell us atheists to stop whining about being forced to sit through mandatory, government-endorsed public Christian prayer; “Nobody’s forcing you to pray, why don’t you just sit quietly and respectfully, I mean, if I was at a meeting and they opened with a prayer for a different religion I’d sit there respectfully and quietly”.

      Hypocrites. Two-thousand years after the time of Christ, they’re still showing us how much more supremely rye-yuh-chuss that the rest of the unwashed heathens they are.

  • Rufus T. Firefly

    I hope the newly elected Weed Supervisor turns the House into Chronic Control.

    • Gerry

      Weed, huh? But I thought Idaho still hadn’t legalized recreational use….

  • Webster

    Did she lose her reelection bid before or after her forehead exploded?

  • UncleTravelingMatt

    My folks live in Cottonwood. They are pretty happy that Sheri got the heave-ho, but they are plenty pissed that Idaho now has closed primaries. They are good Democrats who assume their votes count for nothing, so the only thing left to them is spite-voting.

  • VirginiaLady

    Biblical astronomy? Isn’t there only one mention of an astronomical event in de bibble? A big ol’ star that left a trail of Matzoh crumbs for some Magi to follow? But then some shepards guarding their flocks at night let the lamds eat de crumbs and poof! they wound up at an inn with no rooms and a wicked witch who tried to cook them in an oven? I think that’s how the fable went.

    • Dan

      Very funny fable!

      Constellations: Amos 5:8 (But there is one who made the constellations Pleiades and Orion; he can turn the darkness into morning and daylight into night. He summons the water of the seas and pours it out on the earth’s surface. The LORD is his name!

      Calendars: Psa 104:19 He made the moon to mark the months, and the sun sets according to a regular schedule

      Meteorology: Mat 16:3 and in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, because the sky is red and darkening.’ You know how to judge correctly the appearance of the sky, but you cannot evaluate the signs of the times

      Some kind of Eclipse thing: Mark 15: 33 Now when it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon

      Still, I get your point. While the Bible is a great Historical reference to academics, and a source of truth for believers, it is not really appropriate for teaching science. {Oh an the star was probably a bright light rather than a star, because if a star should sit above a small Middle Eastern town, then there wouldn’t be much of a town left, let alone an entire Earth!}

      • VirginiaLady

        You know your bibble! But you can’t use it to teach because it never says how or why these things happen. The only answer to be found there is because god decreed it thusly, therefore I agree with thee.

        • Dan

          As an ex Science teacher AND devout Christian I can categorically say that the bible does not make a great science text book :) But if I was a historian, I would classify it as an excellent account of history (as most history scholars do).

          The closest I got to using it in class was when teaching Evolution, and I got the students to match the creation account with the Geological Time Scale. All goes well except for birds and fish.

          Misintrerpretation will always be an issue here. This is the sort of thing that could result (pic). If this picture interprets the story of the Ark correctly then Lions should be extinct by now!

          • VirginiaLady

            LOL LOL LOL! That’s why unicorns are now extinct. There is a french commercial about Noah’s son getting the missing unicorns for the ark. Google it!

      • Gerry

        Uh-uhhhh. You got it wrong. There couldn’t have been an eclipse at midday (solar) because the crucifixion (supposedly) happened at the start of Passover–during the Full Moon, which is on the other side of the Earth from the Sun. No New Moon, no blocky Sun, no total solar eclipse.

  • wavicles

    I’m going into our County Offices today and register to run for Weed Supervisor. I know we don’t have one so I’ll be able to create the position from scratch to suit me and my ‘constituants’.

  • Bobnotpedic

    But we still have the school board whacko in Texas now in a runoff. She says that when the President was in his 20s he paid for his drugs as a male prostitute, that the Alamo had been turned over to the UN and that the DNC killed JFK. We’ll always have Texas

  • Celtic_Gnome

    Basic Training must be a lot stranger that I realized if one of the side effects is developing a desire to engage in recreational suction dredge mining.

    • William_C_Diaz

      Basic training is a tiny fraction of the time that a serviceperson spends in uniform, even if they are only on active duty for 2 years.

      Have a great day!

        Sigh! It was sarcasm!
