Yes, George. We Get It. Conrad’s Stupid


So, President Bush is impressed with Conrad, too:

“I kind of like being on the same platform as Senator Burns because he makes me sound like Shakespeare,” Bush said, to laughter.  “I like a plain-talkin’ fellow.

“There’s a lot of eloquent folks in this town, but it’s sometimes short of doers and people who can accomplish some things,” Bush said.

“Conrad was there and he was talking their language,” Bush said.  “They didn’t need a dictionary or a Roget’s Thesaurus to figure out what he was saying.”

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
