“he doesn’t deserve to receive those press releases” Too funny. The Frazier situation aside, the idea that media are somehow more deserving than the rest of us cracks me up.
EDITOR NOTE–The GUARDIAN has long held your views and agrees. We represent the public and share information with the public. “Special” status tends to garner “special coverage”–BSU football and sports in general are good examples.
On the other hand when they won’t even tell you a press conference is scheduled it frustrates claims of “transparency.”

Not that I don’t empathize with some of you down trodden Boise serf candidates but give poor ol’ “Team Dave” a break and let them work. . . After all, they all have a big “D” behind (or in front) of thier names. To hear so many of you tell it, only the Repubs are 100% evil. . . Go ahead and buy into the bull whacky of those north ender retreaded filthy hippies, “The “Dees” have NOTHING but your best interests at heart.” Now go back to sleep and, above all else, Trust them. . . !

Actually, at the national level, the Democrats DO have our best interests at heart, whereas the Republicans represent the rich and big business interests.
At the local level, here in Idaho, it doesn’t matter. They all serve big agricluture, big mining, and big business and ignore those of us who have to work for a living.

Nice to have good ol’ Rod explain all those big issues so clearly. Thanks for that insight, deep as usual. Republicans = bad, democrats = (crappy), but their heart is in the right place just like you Rod.
