Here are some items that caught my eye recently:
- Rosendale Embarrasses Montana
- Montana Freedom Caucus
- Kevin McCarthy
- FCS Football Championship
- One More Thing
ROSENDALE EMBARRASSES MONTANA:
In case you missed it, U.S. Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MT) nominated Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) for Speaker of the House yesterday during which he broke House rules by calling out U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) by name. Then he denied it, but then he did it again.
Watch his full speech HERE. The embarrassing part starts around 7:30.
MONTANA FREEDOM CAUCUS:
I saw a report from the Daily Montanan that says a group of Montana Republicans announced this week they formed the Montana Freedom Caucus, which includes all four of the Republican members appointed to the newly created select committee on election integrity.
Great googly moogly.
The good news is we now have a list of some of the MAGA nutjobs serving in the Montana Legislature.
Check out the article HERE, which includes a link to their press release.
U.S. Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is 0-11 in votes to become the next Speaker of the House. The members meet again today to try again. Some reports say they are close to a deal. We’ll see.
I think McCarthy is damaged beyond repair. He’s sold his soul to become Speaker and that was not enough. Is McCarthy the best the Republicans can offer? I think not.
The lawmakers can’t be sworn in until there’s a speaker. A lot of other things are being delayed. Check out THIS REPORT from NBC News that tells how not having a Speaker is affecting the House.
FCS FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP:
The No. 1 South Dakota State Jackrabbits will face the No. 3 North Dakota State Bison in the 2023 FCS championship game Jan. 8 in Frisco, Texas, The kickoff is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. ET, and it’s televised on ABC.
I don’t know who did the scheduling for the championship game, but this game is in the middle of several NFL games. It’s the final week of the NFL season, so there are many playoff scenarios. There are eight early games on the NFL schedule.
No sport can compete with the NFL.
The FCS Championship should be played Friday night or Saturday morning, which would give them a larger audience.

ONE MORE THING:
We’ve now watched the Republicans vote 8 times over the past few days and none of them have complained about voter fraud. This is progress.
