THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
This week’s poll asks, “Who is the kookiest statewide elected official in Montana?”
(You can select two)
Definition of kooky
: having the characteristics of a kook: CRAZY, OFFBEAT
Definition of kook
: one whose ideas or actions are eccentric, fantastic, or insane
The results will be posted later this week.
The Billings Gazette editorial board posted an interesting editorial on Sunday titled, “We’d prefer not to have a ‘kooky’ member of Congress.”
Amen to that, but here we are.
The editorial board had this to say:
We choose to believe that the Montana mainstream is not out on the far right edge of the universe. We choose to believe the state would rather have a conservative, respected member of Congress likely to have a legislative impact and the ability to sway other members for the good of the state and the nation.
We choose to believe that Montanans would not prefer “kooky.”
I think the editorial board needs to get out and about more. Most of the Republican Party these days are kooks. From east to west, I bet many of them think Rosendale is the cat’s meow.
