  This Is Idaho Not Kali

Idaho Legislator Has A Cow About Hindu Invocation In State Senate

Vishnu? Not much. Vishnu with you?
Idaho state Sen. Steve Vick is all in favor of the First Amendment and freedom and stuff, but that doesn’t mean he has to sit and put up with it when a Hindu cleric gives the invocation at today’s session of the state Senate, which is why he plans on walking out on the pagan voodoo nonsense. Why yes, he is from the same northern Idaho county whose local Republican party floated a proposal to declare Idaho a Christian state last week. Why do you ask?

Idaho Republicans Vote To Ban Judeo-Christian Jesus

Not actually from Idaho; might as well be
In a shocking rejection of the Lord, Idaho’s Kootenai County Republican Central Committee has refused to move forward proposed resolution to declare Idaho a “Christian state.” Tuesday night’s vote greatly disappointed God, His Only Begotten Son, and the members of the committee who had been pushing the nonbinding resolution as a way of telling the world that Idaho was not going to stand for all the vicious attacks on Christianity that have been going on everywhere.

Hero Idaho Lady Wants To Keep Government Out Of Whether Your Kid Dies

Or the occasional death, as long as God's cool with it
Meet Idaho state Rep. Christy Perry, who is Very Pro-Life, and whose website visually suggests that “guns” just might be her middle name. She’s also very big on religious freedom. Including, it turns out, the absolute right to let your children die if you think God doesn’t want them to go to a doctor. And that’s why she opposes a bill that would limit Idaho’s religious exemption from the state’s laws on child neglect. Congratulations, Rep. Perry! We think you may have actually out-looned your colleague Vito Barbieri, who has no idea where a vagina is. Read more on Hero Idaho Lady Wants To Keep Government Out Of Whether Your Kid Dies…

Idaho Republican Asks How Do You Get Stuff In A Lady’s Vagina?

it's a baby not a robot doll
Vito Barbieri is not as stupid as you think he is. (Okay, he is probably as stupid as you think he is.) But by donning the mantle of a complete buffoon who thinks — we don’t know, that you put Sheldon Adelson’s aspirin in your vagina? — he may have actually made a point about “telemedicine,” and how you can’t use it to look in a lady’s cooter. (His point will turn out to be moot, but it IS ONE.) Read more on Idaho Republican Asks How Do You Get Stuff In A Lady’s Vagina?…

TripAdvisor Reviews From Your Racist Uncle

It’s my birthday next week, and I started thinking about day trips my husband can take me on, since there will be no “Life, The Universe And Everything” parties or Pan-Galactic Gargleblasters in my immediate future. Read more on TripAdvisor Reviews From Your Racist Uncle…
 

Judge To Obama: Stop Letting In All Those Immigrants Who Are Already Here!

Screw you, huddled masses
Wednesday was supposed to be the day President Obama officially rolled out the Kenyan welcome mat for all them illegals who’ve already snuck across our border to infect us with diseases and their strange foreign languages. But oh no, you can un-unfurl that Hispanic flag over the White House, Mr. Thinks He’s So President, because United States District Judge Andrew S. Hanen has put a stop to that nonsense, at least for now. Read more on Judge To Obama: Stop Letting In All Those Immigrants Who Are Already Here!…

Idaho Lady Tries To Beat, Choke Jewish Woman Into Personal Relationship With Jesus

We hear she suffers from gentile warts, too
A Boise, Idaho, woman has found an assertive new way of bringing people to the Lord that makes the Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses look like slackers: A Boise woman is facing felony charges after police say she attacked a Jewish acquaintance, stomping on the woman’s neck as part of a bizarre bid to convert her to Christianity.

Idaho State Rep Learns To Love The Gays, Tearfully Votes To Deny Them Rights

Too bad, so sad
The Idaho House’s State Affairs Committee voted Thursday to kill a bill that would have provided statewide housing and employment protection for LGBT people by adding the words “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the state’s Human Rights Act (which yes, it actually has one of, go figure.) Activists for the “add the words” campaign have been trying for a decade just to get the proposal a hearing, so in a small way, this was progress, as previous legislatures haven’t even advanced the bill to the committee. Last year’s legislative session saw mass sit-ins at the state Capitol, including the arrest of a former legislator who refused to leave the House floor.

Morning Maddow: Is Obama Allowed To Be Feeling This Sassy? Pretty Much.

Rachel's happy about the big desk
For Wednesday’s Rachel Maddow Show, Rachel was still using the great big desk from Tuesday’s State of the Union coverage, and she was pretty darn happy about having an extra day with it. It’s like an extra day of politic-nerd Super Bowl. Read more on Morning Maddow: Is Obama Allowed To Be Feeling This Sassy? Pretty Much….

BREAKING: Idaho Newspaper Trashes NRA, Has Not Yet Been Burned To Ground

Shopped? Probably not, but who knows?
Image from Larry Brown Sports Just thought you Wonkers should know that not everybody in Idaho is a raving open-carry gun-fondler, although that does tend to be the prevailing political view in the Gem State. Consider, for instance, this editorial from Sunday’s Twin Falls Times-News, in which the editorial board takes the National Rifle Association to task for its opposition to even the slightest hint of regulation of guns.

Idaho Gov ‘Butch’ Otter Asks Supreme Court To End Gay Marriage. For The Kids!

Furry marriage as God intended it. (With separate vacations, apparently)
Four months after the Supreme Court crammed marriage equality down Idaho’s throat, Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter is asking the Supreme Court for a do-over. Oh, sure, you might think that when the Court upheld the 9th Circuit’s ruling invalidating Idaho’s ban on same-sex marriage back in October, that would have settled it, but Gov. Otter thinks the Supremes need to take a whole new look at the case, because Idaho actually has a very compelling reason for not letting people marry in the wrong combinations: It’s all about The Children.

2014: The Year In God-Bothering

If it's one thing I can't stand, it's people groveling.
God had another big year in 2014, especially right near the end, when His Servant on Earth, Bill O’Reilly, finally declared victory in the War on Christmas. So we can look forward to a 2015 that’s free of that particular topic, we bet. Even so, it would appear that there are still a few areas of American life where religion has caused a wee bit of a ruckus. Like, let’s say, the courts, where the Supremes declared that the Hobby Lobby corporation’s sincerely held religious beliefs can exempt them from following laws they don’t like. Not that there’s going to be any weird fallout from that decision, like people suing for the right to ignore child labor laws because God says it’s OK. Read more on 2014: The Year In God-Bothering…

Idaho Prosecutor Cites Landmark ‘Dixie V. Cotton’ In Black Guy’s Trial

Canyon County Prosecutor's Office team-building exercise
In a surprising case from Idaho, the state Court of Appeals has thrown out the verdict in the trial of a black man where the prosecutor’s closing argument included a few lines from the Confederate anthem “Dixie.” For some crazy reason, the judge thought that the song just might have incited racial animus against the defendant, even though the prosecutor insisted that her only intent was to include a clever rhetorical flourish.

Idaho Republicans Tap Larry Craig For Financial Head

Stop stalling
In an inspiring holiday story of forgiveness and redemption, the Idaho Republican Party has welcomed back former Sen. Larry Craig, installing him this week as “financial chair of its executive committee.” It’s heartening to know that even after Craig was arrested in 2007 and charged with soliciting sex in a bathroom stall in the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, then ordered to pay the Treasury Department roughly $242,000 after using campaign funds to cover his legal defense, Idaho Republicans are still willing to give Sen. Widestance a second chance. Read more on Idaho Republicans Tap Larry Craig For Financial Head…

Here’s How Your Do-Nothing Republican House Is Wasting Your Time And Money This Week

Congress
It sure does look like a busy week for the hard-working hard workers in the House of Representatives. Via Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, here’s a glance at their very busy schedule. As you can see, Republicans are, as always, focused on job creation, which is why they will be taking up eight different bills to re-name post offices. For America!

Idaho Christians Going To Jail For Standing Up To Homosexuals, Just Like Martin Luther King

Looks like the pogayto will be getting a lot of work now
Nobody could have seen this coming. The second Idaho got marriage equality, the crazed liberals who rule that state started oppressing supporters of traditional marriage right and left. Just look at this screaming headline from Tucker Carlson’s Internet Rage-a-torium: “Idaho City To Christian Pastors: Perform Same-Sex Weddings Or Face Jail.” It’s just like the Culture Warriors predicted! Merely standing up for the Bible is now a criminal offense! Let’s see exactly how terrible the oppressin’ is!

Nice Time: Idaho Veterans Cemetery Will Stop Discriminating Against Dead Gay Sailors

Jean Mixner & Madelynn Taylor; Mixner died in 2012
Remember the infuriating story about Madelynn Lee Taylor, the Navy veteran who wanted to reserve a spot in the Idaho Veterans Cemetery for her ashes, to be interred with the ashes of her late wife, Jean Mixner? The two had been together since 1995, and were legally married in California in 2008. Except Idaho wouldn’t let Taylor reserve a niche in its “columbarium” for both herself and Mixner, who died in 2012, because Idaho didn’t do marriage equality, and didn’t recognize same-sex marriages from other states, either. Not even if the gay people were dead. How’s that for protecting the sanctity of marriage? Read more on Nice Time: Idaho Veterans Cemetery Will Stop Discriminating Against Dead Gay Sailors…

Supreme Court Says You Can Go Ahead And Get Gay Married After All, Idaho

One more down ...
Apparently, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy just needed a few days to think about gays getting married in Idaho because on Friday, the court issued this very brief order: The application for stay presented to Justice Kennedy and by him referred to the Court is denied. The orders heretofore entered by Justice Kennedy are vacated. That now vacated order would be the one Justice Kennedy issued on Wednesday, telling Idaho and Nevada to just hang on one dang second with that marriage stuff, a mere day after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a most excellent opinion telling those two states, and specifically Gov. Butch Otter, to shove their “traditional marriage” into any orifice of their choosing. Read more on Supreme Court Says You Can Go Ahead And Get Gay Married After All, Idaho…

Anthony Kennedy Cockblocks Marriage Equality In Idaho
