Rick Hill’s Idea of Tough Questioning

Shares

Delaware-based businessman Rick Hill went on the already GOP-friendly Voices of Montana program Thursday morning, but apparently wanted to make sure that the questions were even more to his liking, by having at least one staffer call in to ask a pre-written question. You can hear the accusation and Congressman Hill’s unconvincing response at 16:25 at this link.

Other highlights from Congressman Hill’s appearance included:

  • his support for a sales tax.
  • calls to scrap the retirement system for state workers.
  • supporting unconstitutional support for private schools.
  • the assertion that Montana voters are not interested in “allegations” about what happened in his personal life 35 years ago.

Based on the scripted question Hill received, enterprising print reporters might want to look back into some of his real estate deals with the state of Montana. Of course, given that they still haven’t reported on ongoing litigation involving Hill

Whether it’s entirely obvious editing of his online presence or yesterday morning’s awkward phone call, it certainly seems like Congressman Hill is running an incredibly clumsy campaign. Perhaps his lead’s not so insurmountable after all.

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Reading this info So i’m happy to convey that I have a very good uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed.

  • I love your website! did you create this yourself or did you outsource it? Im looking for a blog design thats similar so thats the only reason I’m asking. Either way keep up the nice work I was impressed with your content really.

  • I must say, as much as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a fantastic grasp on the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from a lot more than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just heading for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your personal thought process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

  • Quite literally about 90% of running time consists of action sequences and the remaining 10 of dialogue which I had trouble concentrating on, and all this involving hot half naked girls.
