Ken Miller Has Issues

Shares

While it doesn’t have the super-secret cachet of Neil Livingstone’s spy page nor its weekly recipes, I certainly enjoyed my brief tour of the Ken Miller for Governor web page this morning.

Mr. Miller’s list of issues is a collection of buzzwords and catchphrases no doubt intended to appeal to the Montaniban members who will no doubt determine the GOP nominee for governor, featuring time-worn clichés like promises to:

  • Eliminate frivolous lawsuits (watch out Denny Rehberg!)
  • Reform Montana Constitution to pro-business document.
  • Require English as official language (How dare native peoples speak their own language?).
  • Require drug test for entitlements (but not, apparently, for gubernatorial candidates).

I’m sure that Miller’s vague neo-conservative language will find broad appeal in his increasingly extremist party, but he may want to rethink this item:

Reject Federalism when harmful to state rights

Mr. Miller might want to look up what the term “federalism” means before continuing with that particular talking point.

I continue to be incredibly excited about this particular race. Watch each of these candidates move further Right to appeal to the fringe will be delightful.

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.
