bignewsI covered Walt Minnick’s political debut back in 1996, when he ran against men’s-room superstar Larry Craig. He was a good man who got involved in the race to try to make things better. He got trounced.

Now he’s Idaho’s newest congressman, beating a right-wing dipshit named Bill Sali for the 1st District Congressional seat in what was the most Republican state in the union.

Congratulations, Walt. Nice to see change can come even to Idaho.
