The Bozeman Daily Chronicle is reporting today that Burns was back on the campaign trail recently, deflecting criticisms that he his a hack run by dirty money. I am amused that Burns is going back to an old political trick to distract from his ethics problems. “The only thing they got in their sack is mud — they’ve got no ideas,” notes Burns. Is this to imply that Republicans are above the politics? I don’t remember the this side of the Republican party in 2004 when seemingly innocent Bob Brown refused to call of the rabid attack dogs on Schweitzer. If you don’t remember those ads, it was a bunch of Brown supporters from the Flathead region talking about how Schwitzer stole a horse or something during a business deal or some other nonsense.
