    bag this bozo and put him on a chain gang, like, pronto. Cool hand Luke style.....;)


    State Sen. John McGee, R-Caldwell, was arrested overnight by Ada County Sheriff's deputies for misdemeanor drunken driving and felony grand theft.

    McGee, 38, was being held in the Ada County Jail on Sunday. Officials said he'd make an initial court appearance Monday afternoon.

    According to Sgt. Carlos De Leon with the Ada County Sheriff's Office, events unfolded like this:

    McGee began drinking at a golf course at about 10 p.m. Saturday night. At some point, McGee left the clubhouse on foot and walked for a distance, eventually coming upon a parked Ford Excursion with a 20-foot travel trailer near the Muir Woods Subdivision in Southeast Boise.

    The keys were in the vehicle and McGee drove away about 2:20 a.m. Sunday. McGee pulled the vehicle into a long driveway in the subdivision near Overland and Victory roads and Five Mile Road, in an attempt to turn around. The Excursion and travel trailer were jack-knifed in the home's yard.

    Two kids in the house were watching McGee's activities. They told officials he exited the vehicle, walked up and down the street a few times, got in the back of the Excursion and went to sleep. The kids called police.

    What he did was no different from what politicians do generally:

    Intoxicated, they take our property away from us, and jackknife it in the yard.

    It doesn't sound like he intended to profit from the theft of the vehicle. He probably thought he was in his own car and that damned 20 ft travel trailer was following him too close. Will he resign from office? He's a republican, no problem.

    How long did it take the Police to take a blood sample? 1.5 is a pretty high level seven or eight hours or more after he passed out. Will he resign? He is a republican. My guess is he handed it in already.
