NPR is reporting this week that the GOP is trying up it's digital game. Republicans are taking heat because their anti-science platform and failure to embrace technology is repelling young voters.
But Montana Republicans could change the game this week at a Holiday Inn in Bozeman.
First, local repubs announced by modern email technology that former State Senator Joe Balyeat "will deliver a powerful power point presentation" this week on "Economic Freedom." This is exciting stuff, and a major leap forward for the Montana GOP. Sure, the first emails were sent in the 1960's, but PowerPoint first came into being as recently as 1987--and will certainly appeal to the many GOP's who are young enough to have qualified for AARP cards in the last decade.
Senator Balyeat (pictured), though not a young person himself, was once a college student and is a "former editor of The Montana Companion," which sounds like something a lot of young people have surely heard of. The GOP email states that Balyeat's "list of accomplishments and awards is too long to catalogue here"--but we can at least try. He looks like a confederate general and wrote a book about how gays, the UN, and non-christians are leading America toward an armageddon.
