Well Senator Baucus saw the light at the end of the tunnel… and it was Obamacare (partially authored by Baucus) speeding at him for an inevitable catastrophe. With no way to escape he abandoned ship as fast as liberals usually abandon ship. While of course taking no blame for actually sinking the ship.
This left the position of senator open game for the next election. The ensuing Democrat scramble looked like the Oklahoma land rush. Every Democrat party member announced their intention to run for the office. It was almost like they thought the job was a guaranteed payday with benefits… well ok it is.
Of course the media had to announce their candidate Brian Schweitzer. They quickly gathered at his feet salivating while asking his intentions, subtlety showing their intentions of full support for his campaign by laying on their backs wagging their tails hoping for a belly rug.
But Schweitzer did not stand for the occasion and gracefully acknowledge his acceptance of their adorations. For Brian was lacking in support. Not the support of the media or the Democrat party but of the Unions.
You see Brian upset the Unions with his blatant display of capitalism with the Stillwater Mining takeover. What you say, our ex-governor is not only a capitalist but also a destroyer of the environment. Well yes… yes he is.
But that didn’t stop the unions or the Democrats from showing their support of this board member who supports the rape of the land (liberal viewpoint of mine owners).
We really need to invent new words for sycophants and hypocrisy. Because they don’t really describe how low the liberals have gone in their support of Schweitzer.
It will be a tough race. I hope we pick someone competent to run against whichever extremist liberal runs for the senate.
