    That one is really unfortunate, since Hunt was serious about running a real race. But, seriously with Kelleher, wasn't it just you guys figuring you oughta at least make the election a little more entertaining? I mean, in his case that name recognition has to mean Kelleher=Coot.

    •  I'm gonna assume you are joshing with Ed. (2+ / 0-)

      I'm sure you know the ticket splitting happens only in the General in MT.  And, somehow, MTgopers glommed onto Kelleher's name since he probably had the most name recognition, state-wide as a perennial also-ran.

      Montanans take their primaries very seriously at the State lege, County Commissioner level, etc.  The "all politics is local" thing.

      So I'm making this comment more to educate other readers about MT elections than to confront you about Montanans (as a whole) selecting a crack-pot.
