Tuesday’s Quick Hits

Quote for the Day…

You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right. ― Rosa Parks

In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:

  • Special Session
  • Hello, Mineral County
  • Horse-Collar Tackle
  • Tucker Carlson
  • The Western Word Poll


Montana state legislators will be polled this spring to find out whether they want to hold a special session to set up a committee on election integrity. (MTN News)

This is ridiculous.

I guess 10 Republicans signed a letter asking the Secretary of State if she would ask legislators about a special session. According to MTN News, the lawmakers who signed the letter were Sen. Theresa Manzella and Reps. Paul Fielder, John Fuller, Steven Galloway, Jane Gillette, Fiona Nave, Bob Phalen, Jerry Schillinger, Derek Skees, and Brad Tschida.

These folks are the dumbest of the dumbasses in the Montana Legislature.

Hey Republicans – your guy (Trump) lost the election. Your team did very well in Montana.

Vote NO on a special session.

MTN News is reporting that Mineral County Sheriff’s deputies were called on Friday to the Henderson exit off I-90 for a report of a bag of marijuana being found. Sheriff Mike Toth estimates the that the bag weighs about 200 pounds. Toth said they will keep the marijuana for about a week to see if anyone claims it. If it’s not claimed, it will be destroyed.

I would like to offer my assistance in getting rid of the marijuana…

In a proposal sent to NFL Competition Committee Chair Rich McKay ahead of its annual league meeting this month, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is throwing a flag for the term “horse-collar tackle,” which makes light of using tight harnesses to exploit horses for labor.

For some reason, I think there are more important things to worry about these days. Maybe it’s just me…

Read the complete press release from PETA HERE.


Recently I watched an episode of 60 Minutes where Anderson Cooper interviewed U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg about the infrastructure bill.

Cooper showed a clip from a few months ago in which Tucker Carlson of Fox News made fun of Buttigieg who was taking care of his twins, one who had health problems. Buttigieg was using paternity leave.

Several sources, including Business Insider, reported the following quote from Carlson:

“Pete Buttigieg has been on leave from his job since August after adopting a child,” Carlson said, incorrectly stating that Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten, adopted one child when they actually adopted twin newborns.
“Paternity leave, they call it,” he continued, “trying to learn how to breastfeed. No word on how that went.”

Saying “Shame on Carlson” is not enough. That comment is despicable.


This week’s poll question asks, “Do you support a NATO-enforced no-fly zone over Ukraine?” (Background HERE and HERE)

The results will be posted later this week.

  1. If the Repubs want to take a look at election integrity, they should take a look at the integrity of the legislators who decided the addressless special photo IDs for the transient population of college students is no good without backup evidence, but the special addressless photo ID issued to the transient population of military personnel is perfectly okay without backup.

  2. I looked at the list of 10 legislators requesting a poll on a special session, and I thought ‘neigh.’ Spelled that way only because they each strike me as a horse’s ass. Oh, but PETA would likely take offense at that term. I suppose I would sympathize with them; every horse exhibits more dignity than those legislative lugnuts. (I hope there isn’t an organization call PETH – People for the Ethical Treatment of Hardware.) And finally, ‘horse’s ass’ is too dignified a term for the likes of Tucker Carlson.
