Conrad Burns: Master of the Ironic


Jennifer McKee reports that  the Montana Shooting Sports Association has invited all Montana congressional candidates to compete in a pin shoot, a timed content to shoot down a number of bowling pins.  It’s interesting that only Monica Lindeen has plans to attend the event, but the response of Senator Conrad Burns was even more interesting.

One of seemingly dozen people who work as his spokesperson, Sarah Pompei, said this:

Burns may send some of his staff members who served in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Yeah, he’s good at that.
