Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D, MT): having a polygamous family history is bad! …if you’re a Republican.
Via Hot Air comes this… I’m not sure what it is, besides pathetic. Anyway, Brian Schweitzer is apparently reveling in the curious freedom of being term-limited as the (Democratic) Governor of Montana; he decided to give The Daily Beast an earful, and I’m not entirely certain that Schweitzer has realized yet just how badly he stepped in it. Certainly badly enough that if he was | Read More »
Lots of Primaries today.

Said facility has apparently been now taken over by a mysterious organization… but, alas for the conspiracy theorist living in all of | Read More »
Sen. Tester (D, MT) ‘meh’ on public option.
It apparently doesn’t excite his interest either way: U.S. Sen. Jon Tester said that a so-called “public option” in the health care bill is optional for him – and said he is not yet committed to backing the plan being put together by U.S. Sen. Max Baucus.

Montana town offers to take Gitmo detainees.
Hardin, Montana – a very small, very poor town with a very new, very empty jail, is willing to take on the responsibility of holding Gitmo detainees: Hardin borrowed $27 million through bonds to build the Two Rivers Regional Correctional Facility in hopes of creating new employment opportunities.
