Aaron Flint: Citing the John Birch Society

I know that Republicans in Montana hate Governor Schweitzer because he has crushed them at the polls, remained popular despite their whining, and induced incoherent, public profanity-laced tirades from their Legislative leadership, but I think it probably goes a touch too far when, in your attack, you cite the John Birch Society as evidence.

That’s just what Aaron Flint did today in his entirely incoherent attack on the Governor, one that suggested Schweitzer could rule as a dictator in Libya.

The amazing thing? The claim from the Birchers wasn’t the worst part of the argument. It does, however, show just how low the Republican attack machine will sink to discredit Democrats.

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.
