If I Were a Betting Man


If I were a betting man, I would be tempted to post these odds.

Odds that that Dennis Rehberg will vote for a bailout bill that is essentially identical to the one he opposed today, claiming it is much improved for Montanas—1:8

Odds that Sarah Palin will actually debate Joe Biden this week–Even

Odds that, if she does, at one point in the debate she will claim that dinosaurs were on Noah’s Ark, 6:1 against

Odds that Roy Brown will suspend his campaign in solidarity with John McCain–6:1 against

Odds that the Green Bay Packers will bring John McCain in for an attempted Hail Mary before the end of the season–3:1 against

Odds that Tim Fox will ever campaign on that actual duties of the Attorney General—15:1 against

Odds that a Montana right wing blog will bring up Governor Schweitzer’s speech in Philadelphia before tomorrow again before tomorrow at noon, 1:1000
