Tight Republicans

posted by on August 31 at 13:28 PM

Lawd have mercy:

If Senator Larry E. Craig yields to calls for his resignation amid allegations that he solicited sex in an airport bathroom, his successor would be chosen by a fellow Republican who once entered a tight-jeans contest — and won.

Gov. C. L. Otter, known as Butch, was lieutenant governor when he won the “Mr. Tight Jeans” contest at the Rockin’ Rodeo bar here in the state capital in July 1992. A few days later he was arrested, and eventually convicted, for driving under the influence of alcohol.

What the hell is going on down there? Idaho, what is this “Mr. Tight Jeans” all about? Don’t any of you think it’s kind of…funny? Come on now, you know what I’m saying.

It's like a chain reaction.

Charles, you should move to Montana and live there for a few years. ALL of your questions about the red states will be answered.

He is an charismatic fellow to be sure...doesn't hurt to have been married to the daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the country. I wouldn't be surprised to see him on a VP short list in '12.

Governor Butch should resign, allowing Lieutenant Governor Risch to succeed him. In appreciation for the promotion to Governor, Risch could then appoint Butch Otter to the U.S. Senate.
