Another Montana Republican Inducted into Wingnut Hall of Fame

Several of Montana’s TEA Party Republican legislators have made names for themselves in the national news–as laughingstocks anyway.

Yesterday, Rep. Krayton Kerns (R-Laurel) added himself to that list.  TEA Party Republican Krayton Kerns was featured in a popular Huffington Post story  yesterday for his blog post claiming that moving some bison will “topple the Republic” and lead to $25/gallon gas prices.

The story was first reported last week here at the Montana Cowgirl Blog.

Other inductees include GOP Rep. Alan Hale (R-Basin) who said that DUIs laws are destroying small business was featured on MSNBC (VIDEO here.) Rep. “Birther” Bob Wagner (R-Madison County) has appeared on CNN‘s Anderson Cooper 360 to discuss his belief that President Obama is not a U.S. citizen, and Rep. Joe Read (R-Ronan) was featured on the Colbert Report for his legislative resolution declaring that global warming is good. Then there was Derek Skees, Rep. from Whitefish who proposed that Montana “nullify” all federal laws.  Rep. Greg Hinkle (R-Thompson Falls) was mocked on Fox News, as was GOP Sen. Jim Peterson, for his frivolous bill to put the “Code of the West” into Montana law and for his proposal to make spear hunting legal.  And there’s David Howard, the legislator whose Facebook page is devoted entirely to anti-gay rhetoric, and Tom Burnett, that programs to combat hunger are not needed in America because we have so many fat children.  And let’s not forget our Congressman, who says that the EPA is using drones to spy on ranchers.  I’m sure I’m missing some others….there are so many…..

  1. Hey Jim Peterson, how come you GOP types haven’t followed your Code of the west law Yet? Your Teapublican friends are in Violation of:

    (5) Be tough, but fair.

    That also means dont lie

    (6) When you make a promise, keep it.

    You swore an oath to Montana to uphold the law, yet all your kind do… Is try and shit-can them, like MM laws, Promise to raise state workers wages, Promise to keep waters clear from poisoned tailing runoff, Promise to keep fishing access for Montanans…..

    (9) Remember that some things aren’t for sale.

    Our state, our history, our health, and our borders aren’t for sale to Corporations, Our people are not corporations either. State Officials shouldn’t be bought with secret GOP superpac money from donors who wont give their names.

  2. Off Topic:

    There is a new writer at Left in the West. Whether you know it or not, some y’all might remember her from the older days of Montana blogging. So go say Hi. And there’s a new poll, too.

  3. Kerns probably thinks this is something to be proud of, I’m not sure some of these guys are capable of understanding that they are being ridiculed, not celebrated. Mr. Kerns, I encourage you to read the huffigton post comments, Birther bob and Derek Skees are not in fact, anywhere near the mainstream..,

  4. “If you’re just tuning in, Kerns’ musings might strike you as surprising. It’s crazy talk, of course.”

      And lest we forget, we here in GF get to enjoy a weekly cretin krayton type column in the GF Spitoon. The ignoranuses at the Spitoon thought it would be a great idea to give a weekly column to one Col. Klink V. DumbShcmit who writes nearly the identical crap that cretin krayton does! No wonder the Spitoon is going under. Who wants to PAY for a shit paper?
