Idaho state senator Sheryl Nuxoll.

Rumor around the Gem State is that Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) hates living in Washington, D.C. and hates being a congressperson, and is looking to return to Idaho to run for governor. In light of that, consider this an audition for his seat.
BOISE - As the debate over Idaho Gov. Butch Otter’s proposed state health insurance exchange heats up, a North Idaho senator has sent out a mass email and posted a message on Twitter comparing the role of insurance companies to “the Jews boarding the trains to concentration camps,” saying the federal government is using private insurers and in the future will “pull the trigger” on them.

Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood, defends her analogy. “I just want people to hear the truth and to be aware that what is being presented before us is a socialistic program,” Nuxoll said Wednesday. “There is no disrespect for any group or people with the analogy. … I just want people to know the truth.”

Socialism, naziism, it's all the same, right? Nuxoll was last seen making the case that by boycotting the Electoral College, red states could hand the election to Mitt Romney. She'll fit right in with the Michele Bachman/Louis Gohmert/Steve King crowd. In fact, the House Republican caucus is probably the only place that would be as welcoming of a nut like Nuxoll as the Idaho legislature.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
