It seems that the Montana GOP has decided to besmirch their former good name and have instead lined up, rank and vile, to attempt to destroy anything and everything that makes Montana wonderful. It’s driving us to drink.
Currently, we have the Brotherhood Of Koch pulling the same disingenuous malarky that Grover Norquist has pulled in the past, the only difference being that this time, Norquist doesn’t appear to be the largest knob in the sack. For once.
AFP head Zach Lahn has been tasked with twisting the arms of the more moderate GOP legislators, and with the help of ROUS like Art Wittich, Austin Knudsen and Sarah Laszloffy, has managed to turn the Republican caucus into a FireSwamp.
It seems that some of the members of the caucus are fighting back, but how much fighting can they do when the money being spent is literally in the tens of millions? Montanans are strong, but unless we give these fine folks a bit of help, all we’re going to see is the political equivalent of what these bastards want to do to our public lands: slash and burn!
It’s only Monday, but for the insidious perfidy espoused by the deranged leadership of the Republican caucus in the Montana House of Representatives, we need only one thing – a stiff drink.
Today, we choose the original Old Fashioned. Join us, won’t you.
