Congratulations – You made it to Friday and to another exciting edition of “Caught My Eye!”
If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted right here every Friday morning! This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. Sometimes I throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – or maybe both.
Today I write about Bullock and Tester, Planned Parenthood, Chemtrails, Max Baucus, Little People, plus we have a group that is Making Montana Proud!
Montana Governor Steve Bullock was recently elected chair of the Democratic Governors Association. A few weeks ago, U.S. Senator Jon Tester was elected chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. That’s pretty good clout in the political world from one state. I think even Vice President Joe Biden would say this is a big %^&$ deal!
The Democrats suffered severe losses in 2014. Now it’s up to Bullock and Tester to right the ship. The Montana Republican Party took notice of Bullock’s new position with a couple of press releases HERE and HERE.
Walsh Farewell Speech:
U.S. Senator John Walsh gave his farewell speech this week in the U.S. Senate. You can see it HERE. It would be an understatement to say this has been a tough year for Walsh, and most of us would probably not have handled it as well as he. Walsh admitted his mistakes and now he is moving on.
One thing for sure, veterans and military personnel are losing a strong advocate in the senate.
Thank you for your service, Senator Walsh.
The Associated Press reported this week “Montana’s political practices commissioner has ruled that Planned Parenthood violated campaign law.”
I don’t see how this can happen. The Commissioner leans to the left and he was appointed by a Democrat (Governor Steve Bullock). Planned Parenthood is a left-leaning organization.
Making Montana Proud:
This section is where I mention people or groups whose actions embarrass Montana in some way.
-From the Montana House Leadership: The Republicans have the majority in the Montana House of Representatives and their one page “dress code” for the upcoming legislative session is being ridiculed across the country, especially item #3, “WOMEN SHOULD BE SENSITIVE TO SKIRT LENGTHS AND NECKLINES.”
The Montana House Leadership is an embarrassment to Montana.
Dr. Ed Berry over at the PolyMontana website devotes about 1,700 words to Chemtrails. You can read it HERE. Enjoy!
The truth is out there…
Ambassador Max Baucus turned 73 yesterday (Dec. 11).
This week Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis called Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel “a midget.” The Bengals play the Browns this week.
Lewis apologized for his remarks, but that did not keep a Cleveland television station from sending a little person to Lewis’ midweek press conference for an interview. Watch it HERE.
By the way, Manziel is six feet tall.
One More Thing:
Nobody gets out alive…
