John McCain’s Victory Speech-Yikes!


If I were a Republican imagining a general election campaign pitting John McCain against Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, I don’t know what would be more disconcerting about his victory speech night–his intellectual plagiarism from the Bush Administration’s ideology or the incredibly awkward way he lifelessly reads a TelePrompTer.

It made me pine for the vivacious campaign of Bob Dole.

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.
