I just got done airing this story and I have to go back soon, so here's the gist:
At the annual trial lawyers convention in July, Governor Schweitzer told a story about the 2006 Senate race that elected Jon Tester over Republican incumbent Conrad Burns.
Schweitzer's story talks about running off poll watchers and pressuring the Butte-Silver Bow county clerk & recorder to hold off on releasing results until they could ensure Tester's victory to avoid talk of a recount.
I don't want to contribute to Palin fatigue, so I'll try to keep this on McCain as much as I can. But no promises...
Not unlike George W. Bush anointing himself "The Decider" McCain & co. have touted their "experience" more as a capacity for making decisions on issues rather than a track record of choices they've already made.
Well, as anyone with a bad tattoo can tell you:
It's not about making decisions...
It's about making good decisions.
Now the Montana Senate race has always been, and will remain a lock for Max Baucus. But now that Montana republicans have chosen their challenger. I thought I'd introduce him to you...
I've hardly seen any of this Kerry stuff over the past couple days, but I'm still sick of it. So I'll just say that Kerry isn't the subject of this entry, but his remarks and more importantly Keith Olbermann's commentary tonight are the tipping point.
Since this is my first diary, I'd better lay a few things out:
I'm from Big Sandy, Montana. I know Jon Tester. He went to school with my parents and I went to school with his kids. You'd think in a town of less than 700 people, when a man as upstanding as Jon runs for the U.S. Senate, everyone could turn out and support him.
