Don’t ruin a good day by thinking about a bad yesterday. Let it go. – Unknown
Today’s independent commentary deals with these issues:
- A New MTSen poll
- Battle of Flat-Tops Corn Maze
- TWW Poll: I-185
The New MTSen Poll:
A National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) poll released recently says their guy, Matt Rosendale, has a two-point lead over incumbent U.S. Senator Jon Tester.
The NRSC would not release the results of the poll unless it showed something good for their guy. He can tell people it’s a close race and rally his base and raise money.
The poll is also good for Tester. He can use it to rally his base and raise money.
See how that works?
I still predict a solid win for Tester – probably with a higher margin than ever before.
President Donald Trump probably figured a dead John McCain could do him no harm, but since Trump was an ass and did not respect the dead patriot, he heard it from all angles.
Suddenly Monday afternoon Trump changed his tune, released a nice statement about McCain, and allowed the flag at the White House to be flown at half-staff until McCain’s burial.
That’s good, but the damage was already done. Trump is even a bigger ass than most people thought.
On another note, thumbs-up to Montana Governor Steve Bullock for issuing a proclamation and ordering all flags to be flown at half-staff until McCain is buried on Sunday. Bullock said in the proclamation that McCain was a hero in war and in Congress.
Battle of Flat-Tops Corn Maze:
If you follow me on Twitter or like The Western Word Facebook page then you probably already know about the Applestem Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch near Vaughn, Montana, having a “Battle of the Flat-Tops” corn maze – Rosendale vs. Tester.
More information about the corn maze can be found HERE.
TWW Poll: I-185:
On the ballot this November in Montana is Initiative 185 (I-185). I-185 will raise tobacco taxes to fund health care programs.
A poll I posted Monday asks, “How will you vote on I-185?”
