Idaho Dems have an alternative to Clinton and Obama in their upcoming primary

If you're an Idaho Democrat and you don't feel like being conned by Clinton or Obama in November, you can vote for a con:

A federal prison inmate got himself listed on the ballot for Idaho's May 27 primary as a Democratic presidential candidate, the state's top election official said.

Keith Russell Judd is serving time at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Texas for making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999. He's scheduled for release in 2013.

Judd, 49, qualified for the ballot by submitting a notarized form and paying the required $1,000 fee, state Secretary of State Ben Ysursa said. As a result, Democratic voters will be able to choose between Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Judd.

Sounds to me like Ohio needs to tighten up their standards a little.
