Shocking Discovery: Why Idaho Voters Keep Electing Crooked Politicians

Idaho's political leaders have got to be the reddest of the red, the inbreddest of the inbred.  Why do Idaho voters keep electing these gene pool rejects to positions of power?  One little anecdote explains it all:

CenturyLink Arena in Boise has been selling beer in two sizes, large and small.  It's $7 for a large beer; $4 for a small one.  And now it turns out:  the $7 large beer and the $4 small beer are the exact same size.

The $7 beer is served in a taller narrower container, so it looks like it holds more beer.  Er, you know, if you're eight years old, or the elevator isn't going all the way to the top floor, or something.

Now, I'm trying to think waaaay back to a psychology class I took a loooong time ago...there's a certain stage in a child's development when the child will realize that a tall thin glass of water doesn't really contain more water than the short wide glass that's sitting next to it.  I don't remember at what age this transition is supposed to take place, but I'm sure it's a lot lower than the legal drinking age.

The reason this story is making the news is, several customers are suing the arena after finding out they've been had.  WTF???  When I've been taken (yes, it happens), my first thought is Fuck!  I can't believe I fell for that!  Maybe I shoulda sued.

Anyway, these adults (chronologically at least) who thought a taller narrower beer container was larger than the shorter wider one these people VOTE.

[forms cross with index fingers]

Idaho's political leaders have passed some of the worst laws in the country.  They're determined to exterminate every last wolf and coyote in the state.  Their state motto should be If it moves shoot it.  And Idaho has recently passed an Ag Gag law, which basically says factory farms can provide the most unthinkable, most execrable living conditions for their livestock, and that's perfectly OK; but if you report these conditions you go to jail.

The list goes on and on.  In summary:  Idaho has some of the most corrupt, bone-stupid, bought-and-paid-for politicians in the country; and Idaho's voters think a tall narrow beer container is larger than the same-size short wide container.

Coincidence?

I guess the arena assumed that their beer guzzin' patrons just fell off the "potato" truck. Apparently they were correct. HARHAHAHAHAHARHAR!

I don't know, Tom.

NC is gaining on them.

Quickly.

Catch Duke's Governor's act sometime.

Love you,

HEY I applaud these people, for years we've been fooled by items that come in Large, King-Sized, Jumbo, only to find out they are basically the same or have such a small difference in everything but the price.

Don't get me started on "New and Improved"

Jerry: And there seems to be an endless supply of them.

jadedj: Maybe they all have brain injuries from falling off those potato trucks.

Cirze: You're right, it's probably worse for the people of N. Carolina since that state is very cosmopolitan and used to be progressive. I'm pretty sure Idaho has always been rightwing and not very diverse.

Erik: Maybe those Idaho arena customers would pay $16 for a New and Improved beer in a small container.

CG: Me too. If "Deliverance" were being filmed today, it would take place in Idaho instead of the Deep South.
