Governor C.L “Butch” Otter

Following the “Super Tuesday” of Republican Primary voting can be funny for many reasons, but an unexpected pleasure arose in seeing the current Idaho governor Clement Leroy “Butch” Otter’s name come up in news reports.

This otter looked somewhat butch to me.

Governor Otter is now serving his second term as Idaho governor, and got on my good side when I found his eloquent and passionate defense of potatoes.

A brief look at his biography also shows he was formerly married to someone called Gay Simplot, which definitely enhances his credentials for this blog.

What does all this teach us? Sometimes, just sometimes, reading political coverage isn’t a complete waste, as it can teach us about the amusing names politicians may have.
