A caller to the Aaron Flint show this morning asked Senator Jeff Essmann (R-Billings), the studio guest, whether he’d ever tried pot.
Essmann, as we all know, is the holy roller, church-going saint who has devoted his political life to crusading against medical marijuana. He believes people who grow a plant in their house for a sick spouse should first be required to get finger printed.
Essmann clearly sounds like he was caught totally off guard, and he hemmed and hawed and laughed and mumbled, perhaps buying some time while trying to make a decision, before finally claiming that he never has tried pot.
One should listen for oneself, and draw your own conclusion as to the credibility of the answer.
Either way, the guy is a complete loser.
