The proactive approach to a mistake is to acknowledge it instantly, correct and learn from it. – Stephen Covey

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!

If you are a first-time visitor, CME 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. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.

Topics that I am providing commentary on today include the University of Montana, Denise Juneau & UM, Sarah Palin & VA, Jon Tester & VA, TWW Christmas party, and much more!

The Wednesday Read: Election Bloodbath

In the state of Montana, the Republicans almost wiped out the Democrats in statewide races. It was a bloodbath.

It all started with Democrat U.S. House candidate Denise Juneau losing to incumbent Republican Ryan Zinke. I never actually thought that race would be close. It wasn’t.

There are still votes to be counted because for some reason election after election it seems the Montana election officials have problems election night counting the votes. I checked some national maps at 6:30 a.m. and states like Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Idaho, and Utah all had 99% of their votes counted. Montana had 90% at that time (78% of precincts reporting).

So we wait, and wait, and wait.

What a week! Here I am working my tail off to bring you the best independent commentary from The Western Word world headquarters, which is located in a well-stocked underground bunker (in an undisclosed location). I worry about the Feds like Obama coming to take my guns or the UN moving in and taking over my compound. Now I have the added worry about freaking CLOWNS, running around my neighborhood, too?
