A Big Bonehead

Politico‘s Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Matt Wuerker weighs in on Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson’s use of a Congressional Rider to attempt to deny bighorn sheep protections on national forests in order to allow a few lone sheepman access to graze domestic sheep that transmit deadly disease to imperiled bighorns on National Forest public lands.

    Nothing and nobody could have put this any better! I love it.

    Thanks for motivating me to bust my ass to restore the native Bighorn sheep of the Salmon River, Mr. Simpson. I can only hope that the Bighorns will prevail in court in the next couple of weeks.

    So where does this leave Simpson with sportsmen? He was the hero of some (many?) with the wolf delisting rider, but now he shows his true colors–it appears that it was/is all about livestock after all?

    There must be something wrong with the people of Idaho that they continue to elect screwballs like this clown.
