Note about portrait on Senate website[edit]

The portrait of Barrasso at http://www.senate.gov/pagelayout/senators/one_item_and_teasers/barrasso.htm is not public domain. It belongs to the state of Wyoming, as can be seen at http://legisweb.state.wy.us/2006/members/S27.htm. 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)

Iraq?[edit]

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)

He does.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.89.136.70 (talk) 23:19, 14 November 2011 (UTC) 

Getting a picture[edit]

Can someone please find a picture that's ok to use? Thanks.1.21 jigwatts 02:20, 6 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Too trivial & outdated?[edit]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 This seems trivial and out-of-date (and a little mean-spirited).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 47.188.141.243 (talk) 18:41, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
