Putin Shows the World He Has Grabbed America by Its Pussy

Shares

That is all I have got… a headline, a picture, and one of the most illuminative and revealing and disastrous press conferences in history. The fears and backstories so many of us have warned about for over two years seem to have finally set in. There have been many points like this, which have turned into utter disappointments but this moment feels like the one where people finally saw the tip of the iceberg. That disaster looms deep and real and many parts of our vessel are about to run aground of it. But there is a famous naval battle cry: “Don’t Give Up the Ship!” That ship is our democracy and while Daines, Rosendale, Gianforte, and the Montana GOP have given up the ship for electoral gains, this our chance to hang on and save what remains. You are angry, you are sad, you are suddenly seeing the immense task before us. Do not worry, do not run away. You have people surrounding you with buckets and life preservers. We will get through this. Do not give up this country. This is our moment.

If you appreciate our efforts to hold Montana Republicans accountable and the independent journalism here at The Montana Post, please consider supporting our work with a small pledge.
