More Tea Party Hijinks with Tim Ravndal

When I was in fifth grade, I lost an election for class president by one vote. I was devastated. It wasn’t until the end of the year, when I realized that the President never got to make a single decision nor even run a single meeting that I felt better about losing the position of power I had dreamed of.

Maybe someday Tim Ravndal will demonstrate the kind of thinking I did when I was 10.

Tim Ravndal, who headed the Big Sky Tea Party until he was ousted following a controversial message he posted on Facebook, has been tapped for a leadership post in the Lewis & Clark Conservative Tea Party organization in Helena.

Anyone willing to bet that within six months Tim will be the leader of the “Tough Tea Conservative Party Conservatives”?

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.
