Gossipy Monday

This morning's chewables for the grist mill:

Conservative columnist Robert Novak tells a television audience that the Republican Party's Senate leadership knew all along about Craig's problems.

For that you'll have to zip over to Youtube and watch the ole guy spill.

Up in the Coeur d'Alene and Spokane area, blogger James Bond pops up on the Spokesman-Review's Huckleberries blog to say that Craig ain't the only one with well-known rumors trailing him. Bond (not his real name, natch) sez the Republicans need to clean house.

But back here in Boise, it's all pins and needles while we wait for Governor/Lt. Governor Jim Risch to make an announcement about his intentions for Craig's U.S. Senate seat.

Dare we take bets?
