Conrad and Montana Right Wing Blogs on the Issues

Earlier this week, I referenced the latest Conrad Burns advertising delight. Not satisifed with just parroting the latest Republican talking points, that inane right-wing site in Montana approvingly copied the whole text of the ad.

Here are the key points:

They don’t talk about issues because they can’t compete with Conrad Burns’ record of success for Montana.


Imagine…a Senate controlled by Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy…a Senate under the influence of Hollywood liberals and trial lawyers.

Imagine a Senate that did not strengthen national security or confirm two new Supreme Court Justices.

Imagine a Senate that wants to censure or impeach President Bush – for making us safer.

Imagine a Senate that will forget about Montana’s economy.

National Democrats and East Coast Liberals are trying to make that Senate a reality.They’re conducting a smear campaign against Senator Conrad Burns – launching untrue, partisan attacks.

Uh…those are issues?  God, I wish Montana Republicans would just admit what they must be thinking. Burns is an embarrassment. He is a crook. He is more interested in lobbyists than constitutents. Despite this, Montana Republicans would rather parrot his absurd attack ad than consider the possibility that another candidate from (gasp!) another party might be a better option.

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.
