Montana Politics The Media

EXCLUSIVE! A Look at Lee’s Upcoming Political Coverage

Now that they’ve pushed out reporters who kept writing boring stories about actual policy after sitting through meetings that last, like, FOREVER, Lee Enterprises is excited to bring its first hard-hitting political feature: the best facial hair in MONTANA POLITICAL HISTORY!

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.

  • Holeeeeeeee SH*T! Even MORE hard hitting reporting form the Spitoon! They dare to go where others fear to tread! Right to the outhouse of journalism! It’s safe there!
    Dead cops, military horse sh*t, and bizarro religeeous bullshit! It’s all you need to know ’bout Great Falls!
    p.s. And on a side note, it was announced that GF is now to be treated to a NOTHER Walmart store! Can you frickin’ bee LIEVE that? I can’t either. And with nary a word of opposition! Hell, bret donkey, the head of the city development division, practically ORGASMED when he heard the news! He’s slow that way. Some call it retarded. But when you think about it for a moment, it becomes clear.
    WHY another Walmart in GF?! Doesn’t make sense! They can’t find enough inbreds to work at the one the already have here! So why build another? I can’t find a whole lotta people who want the damn thing! We were hoping for a Costco.
    You see, what is the problem with Walmart you ask? Well, bret donkey says it will bring in 300 jobs. Yippeee. Three hundred more desperate outta state inbreds making LESS than a livable wage and NO health insurance move here with their special needs kids and fat relatives to sell even MORE Chinese sh*t to fat, lardbutted, scooter ridin’ hopeless bastards! Is that really progress? Is that really economic development worth orgasming over? I don’t think so. But bret donkey thinks it is! But bret has an affliction. HAMSTER nuts! Yes, he has hamsternuts!
    I mean, when you factor in ALL the costs associated with the outta state inbreds who FLOCK here to take a low wage sh*t job, it is NOT economic development in any sense of the word! They require SUBSIDIZED housing, SUBSIDIZED health care, special CARE for their inbred kids and relatives, ALL so that the LOCAL fat batstards can buy even MORE corn fed sh*t to eat and crap merchandise from China! What is WRONG with this picture?
    Well, don’t ask bret donkey! He thinks it’s a great day in great falls as LONG as we get inbred outta state bodies to increase the population!
    p.s.s. They can’t even find enough inbreds to fill all the positions at the one we already have! Sad, so sad.

  • Folks in GF and the surrounding area won’t want to miss this! I have never met Jack. I can’t wait to! I’ll bring the grandkids to meet a true Montana legend!
