[…]We also agreed we could deal with more than 29 if it was easy to do so. We decided to treat Raul Labrador of Idaho. His district includes part of greater Boise, so we decided we might as well get to Mike Simpson, whose gerrymandered district also covers part of Boise – and of course Idaho Senator Risch, the ‘Most Conservative Senator’ according to the National Journal – and one of the least effective based on his Leadership Score. Senator Mike Crapo is also very conservative and merits treatment. Our plan became to focus on the key 29 – AND to treat nearby colleagues, if convenient. And that led to the harmless patient priority list – as of late 2015: Supreme Court Justices – five: Scalia, Antonin Thomas, Clarence Alito, Samuel Roberts, John Kennedy, Anthony Presidential Candidates – four Rubio, Marco Cruz, Ted Bush, Jeb! Paul, Rand Plutocrats and others – five Koch, Charles Koch, David Norquist, Grover – President, Americans for Tax Reform (ATF) LaPierre, Wayne – Executive Director, National Rifle Association (NRA) Donohue, Thomas – President, US Chamber […]

[…]one road trip can access two Idaho Senators and five Idaho/Washington Representatives. “Raul Labrador has a small stable of kids, some fairly young. We want to minimize the possibility – the risk – of excess dosing – or ingestion by small children,” I said. “I’ve been considering that,” Lucien said. “The template will include a field for restriction or caution. We can use phrases like Only One! For Adults Only! Recommended Dose – One per adult per day.” “I like ‘For Adults Only – but Only One!” “OK – we’ll use that as the default entry for that field – we can easily change it.’ Lucien continued: “Given the patients selected and our homework, I’ve been thinking about how to use the brand to facilitate their acceptance of the treatment (the chocolate) and their transition to a more empathic perspective.” “Great. Go on,” I said. “The brand needs to reflect and recognize their conservative bent and suggest a more empathic, compassionate, direction – without being overly obvious or threatening.” Lucien does know something about marketing – and design. He went on: “Assuming even the most hard-nosed deniers are ‘softening’ their denial, but […]
[…]he liked chocolate – and accepted one to taste. Then he took two Ananda’s for Mr. and Mrs. Labrador. Peter and Saul said they didn’t like the ‘feel’ of the office and were happy to leave. “Labrador looks like a sweet, round-faced, young politician – like a younger version of Scalia,” Jay said. “But he acts, like Scalia did, more like an unreasonable bull dog,” Bill added. Iowa – Bill: Ernst + Grassley, Young, King “I waited to go to Iowa till after their caucus,” Bill said. “I learned that it was a ‘Grassley state’, meaning he’s very popular throughout the state.” “I read that he visits all 99 counties every year,” I added. “And during the runup to the caucus, he helped host and introduce nearly every GOP candidate running in Iowa.” “It was easy to get to the four offices,” Bill reported. “At each one I expressed my admiration for Grassley, and wore one of his 2016 reelection buttons. That was popular, especially at Grassley’s office. I was there before the Grassley-McConnell problem with the upcoming Supreme Court nomination.” “At Ernst’s office I talked with the staffer about Joni […]
