Lest anyone forget that we're electing a president this year, some disengaged voters set up camp on Primary Day in front of the Hailey Post Office in the Wood River Valley. Their targets? Just about everybody.

On sign dubbed Republicans Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul as "Idiots." Being equal-opportunity offenders, another sign sported a picture of Barack Obama with a Hitler moustache. That sign read, "Stop World War III. Impeach Obama."

But another citizen made a point of expressing his First Amendment rights as well, from a comfortable distance. Hailey police stood by to make sure things didn't go off the boil.
