Is up at From Eternity to Here. It’s not good news, but as D. Gregory Smith explains, it’s not something we can be silent about.
Just when you thought you could no longer be shocked by what comes out of the mouths of Republican legislators, D. Gregory Smith at From Eternity to Here reminds us that we can.
First there was Tim Ravndal who made national news for his violent anti-gay comments that implied his support for the public hanging of gay citizens.
Then there was Sen. Jason Priest, (R-TEA Red Lodge) who used “hateful, homophobic talk” to argue his dislike for paying taxes.
Now, there is Rep. Champ Edmunds (R), of Missoula to compete the trifecta. Rep. Edmunds came out against a federal probe into the way the University of Montana handled (at least) 80 rape allegations. Edmunds says the investigation is just a ruse help Joe Biden. Intelligent Discontent has the story. It’s today’s must read political blog post.
