Stick to the Resolutions Honoring Anniversaries, Representative Rehberg

A real red-letter week for Montana’s congressman. When he wasn’t in meetings designed to scuttle affordable healthcare for everyone, he was pretending to be an expert on prisons and construction.

One would assume that someone as close to Senator Burns as Representative Rehberg was would have a better idea about the difference between a prison and a jail, but it appears that Mr. Rehberg imagines all detention centers look like Hollywood sets of the Old West.

Let the people who actually know what they are talking about make prison policy, Denny. When we have crucial subdivision ranching or goat issue, someone will let you know.

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.
