  • Speaking of tweets, this one caught my eye from Monfartin’ for a couple of reasons. First off, just when did OPI become a yuuge problem in Montana? Secondly, when did a big dumb ex-cop with probably NO higher education become the guy to fix any imaginary problems at OPI.
    And just HOW would a big dumb ex-cop do it? And lastly, do Montanans REALLY believe that OPI is the yuuge problem that Monfartin’ and the fascists much remedy?? Why? Because they do a great job of educating our kids and grandkids?? Is a big dumb ex-cop really gonna improve on that?

    When will Montanans get tired of the rightwing morons bashing our wonderful education system in Montana? Punching down is all the Pubes have, and it gets damn old!

    I realize that vogel is out, but this tweet really pisses me off.

    Read your “news” article. A desire for people like Vogel to clean up OPI is exactly why MT voted for @ElsieforMontana #mtpol #GetOverIt

  • Good points on the so-called ‘moral misfits’ and holier-than-thou attitudes and ‘punching down’, not exactly a virtue of Christ.

  • Oh ferrchrissakes! There is a reason that Dims keep losing in Montana. It’s because they’re idiots! Come on, folks. There’s MORE to worry about in life then gays, guns, and seat belt laws! The best way to keep losing elections is being stupid. They’ll never learn. I personally do NOT want the cops to be able to stop people just for the helluva it. Not good. Not good at all.

    Oh well, the good news is that with the Pubes in charge, all the Dim nonsensical no-issues will fall by the way side.

    Seat belt laws. What a joke.
