Note about portrait on Senate website[edit]

The portrait of Barrasso at is not public domain. It belongs to the state of Wyoming, as can be seen at There will need to be detailed fair use rationale for this image, but it will probably be deleted as replaceable if it is uploaded again. --Tom (talk - email) 18:10, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

If this isn't fair use then I don't what is. It's not as if the state of Wyoming is going to demand royalties before a photo of its new U.S. Senator goes up in a completely not-for-profit encyclopedia. DanyaRomulus 22:16, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
It still doesn't change the fact that the image is copyrighted and has usage restrictions. If a free alternative could reasonably be found or created, then this image has to be removed. --Tom (talk - email) 02:57, 19 July 2007 (UTC)


I know that a majority of Republicans support the war in Iraq, but what is his view? I am assuming he supports it, but could someone let me know? Politics rule 22:58, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

OK, his Casper office is a few blocks down from work, I'll stop by and see what they may have. Kc7zru 01:12, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Too trivial & outdated?[edit]

In the Tenure section is says "In 2007, Roll Call called Barrasso the least powerful member of the Senate". This seems trivial and out-of-date (and a little mean-spirited). That was the year he was appointed to the Senate, so it stands to reason that he would not have much power. I suggest removing this statement... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:41, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
