Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll may not have much to show for her first term in the Legislature, but she made a Washington Post blog today.
How'd she do it? By floating the desperate and flawed idea that red states could swing the presidency to Republican Mitt Romney — by boycotting the Electoral College process and leaving the vote to the GOP-controlled House of Representatives.
It doesn't work that way — as even Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood, is now sort of conceding, nine days after tweeting about the idea.
On Wednesday, Nuxoll sent out a tweet that said, in essence, "Never mind." A snippet, from the Spokane Spokesman-Review's Betsy Russell. "Some have rejected the idea, so let's drop it and continue on. To vilify me because you don't like the idea is unnecessary.”
Evidently, those sticklers at the Washington Post didn't get the memo.
