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.

- 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.

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.
