A Blow to Good Journalism
Montana Nutjobs Back in the National Spotlight
Mother Jones today reports on the latest wacky details about GOP gubernatorial candidate Neil Livingstone. There’s even a great quote from Pogie at Intelligent Discontent. UPDATE: I don’t want to give too much away, but here’s a taste of what can be found in the article:
In 2005, Roll Call dubbed Livingstone “Deep Mouth,” after it was alleged that he had dined at Dupont Circle’s Palm steakhouse 88 times in a 57-day period. (Livingstone denied the charge, telling the paper that he eats there only about 15 times a month.)
Go read the hilarious piece. Suffice it to say, Livingstone’s candidacy is not doing Montana’s image any favors.
Women are Like Dogs
Livingstone isn’t the only GOP-er hard at work making Montana a national laughingstock this week. TEA Party Republican Rep. Krayton Kerns is in the news for “comparing Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke to a studding English bulldog named “John-Boy.” Yes, really.” Here’s the story. Readers may recall that this isn’t the first TEA Party Republican to compare women to animals. Keith Regier said we’re more like cattle. Democrat Cole Olsen is campaigning to replace Kerns in the Montana Legislature.
