Welcome to Monday and Monday Morning Politics. Today I take a look at Rehberg’s new job, the Republican National Committee’s Growth & Opportunity Project, the Conservative Political Action Conference, and how the U.S. Senate office space nightmare ended. There’s more so read on!
The Republican National Convention gets started for real today, but Monday they stepped aside for Tropical Storm Isaac. There were still several things that caught my attention from Monday – things you need to know!
Today I write about Governor Babcock, Daines speaking, Rehberg and lobbyists, Romney not understanding, a Thursday mystery speaker, prayers for Specter, Drinking the Storm Away, Republicans attempting to dance, and sharing time with Isaac. There’s a lot more so read on… Continue reading

Welcome to Monday Morning Politics – the place to catch up on the political stories from the weekend!
Almost every Monday I compile some of the political stories from the past weekend and put them in one place for all to see – and also offer some personal commentary!
Today I take a look at a super rich politician, I share the results of a poll, I check out who is on the ballot in Montana, I look at what Palin wrote, I write about Essmann getting out, I mention the “sweet 16″ who applied for a job in Helena, I talk about signs signs everywhere a sign, I let everyone know that the flim-flam man is heading east, and I wish a very happy birthday to one of my old bosses!
Although we are getting deeper and deeper into the holiday season, the political ads are still being aired to try and get voters’ attention.
This week I found four that caught my eye: Mitt V. Mitt from the DNC, failed promises from the RNC, get on board from the Obama campaign and The Challenge from Conservatives4Palin! Plus, I added one more special video. Enjoy…
For the past several Mondays, we’ve taken a look at some of the political stories that hit the World Wide Web over the weekend.

The boys and the girl vying for the GOP nomination for President in 2012 were having a great time in Iowa, attending the state fair (eating corn dogs and anything else that could be fried), participating in a debate on the Fox News Channel, and holding a straw poll.
All just seemed right in the world…
Just about the time it looked like there was a little clarity coming to the Presidential race with Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney doing well and Ron Paul making a decent showing, along came Texas Governor Rick Perry. Continue reading
It’s kind of like Christmas when I hear about a new political poll coming out! Instead of just cutting and pasting a few sentences from the poll to be the first one to break the news, I like to take a little time to “savor” the poll – and then let my readers know my thoughts.
Our friends at Public Policy Polling (PPP) have released a couple new polls with Montana ties. One is a GOP Presidential poll that shows Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann leading Mitt Romney (that is if Sarah Palin stays off the ballot in 2012).
You can read about the poll HERE.
If Sarah Palin comes out to play, then she leads GOPers Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, and Mitt Romney in Big Sky Country.
That last sentence should be a key for every Montana Republican running for state-wide office. At the top of their “To Do” list they should write: 1. Get Sarah Palin’s endorsement. 2. Get her to come to Montana to campaign for me. Continue reading
