1. Ted is going to do his darndest to

make the GOP Convention in Cleveland an ideological shit-storm.

He certainly has the skills set for it.

3. My poor Idaho.

I love Idaho because of the natural beauty but why the people of Idaho have always voted against their own best interests has always been beyond my ability to understand it.

6. We moved here when Idaho had Dem. Gov. Cecil Andrus and Sen. Frank Church

Along came Steve Symms and Helen Chenoweth and it's been a long downhill slide ever since. Yes, it sucks.

7. I lived there during Chenoweth's reign. Good you got

rid of her but what followed wasn't much better. It has to be lonely for a Bernie supporter there. Hang in there.

8. Helen "black HEEElicopters" and "canned salmon means it's not endangered"

We've had some real doozies here over the decades. This year's crew at the Statehouse has been especially jaw-dropping.

9. Do you have any insight as to why Cruz appeals to Idahoans?

I can't imagine other than he's Canadian and knows how to talk to people used to
living in the woods, but he's actually a city guy, isn't he? Or is it the fact that he's a Christian evangelical? Did he appeal to the Mormons? Even that is mystifying to me.

10. Honestly can't say, I haven't really followed his policy positions much

He came across as a gun lover in one commercial if I recall, and he did show up Sunday for a campaign appearance at Boise State. He also appeared at a campaign rally in Coeur d’Alene on Saturday with the pastor who was later shot . Trump had a phone interview with KTVB (NBC affiliate) and promised to "eat some of those delicious Idaho potatoes". Phoniness doesn't sit well with a lot of folks here.

4. I despise Cruz

I hope he fails in every contest and every election from here on.

5. He's definitely the worst of the current crop,

but also the least electable. And every state he wins is one step closer to a brokered convention, and subsequent GE rout.

Go Cruz! (and then go away!)

11. Ugh, he's so creepy and that horrible squeaky voice of his

he's totally repulsive.
