Caught My Eye…

I had the right to remain silent…but I didn’t have the ability. – Ron White

Welcome to the big show – the first “Caught My Eye” of November!

If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” has been posted here every Friday morning since October 2010! This column is where I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. Sometimes I throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.

Today I write about Denise Juneau & Ryan Zinke, Tim Fox & the PSA, Montana Television Network grows, Illegal Immigration & cartoons, Ben Carson & hip-hop & anger, House Republicans, George H.W. Bush, Whitlock returns, and much more!

Cheney Speaks…

Former Vice President Dick Cheney appeared on Fox News Sunday yesterday (15 months after his heart transplant) and it was a pretty interesting interview conducted by Chris Wallace. You can read the transcript HERE or watch the interview HERE.

Before he was Vice President, he was the Secretary of Defense when I served in the military. Many people either love him or hate him, but I have always respected his opinion and his leadership. Sadly, Dick Cheney would be a little too moderate for the far-right fringe people who have taken over the Republican Party.

Cheney was asked his opinion about Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old contractor who reportedly released details about National Security Agency’s secret surveillance programs. Cheney said, “I think he’s a traitor. I think he has committed crimes in effect by violating agreements given the position he had.”

He also said he was worried that he may have more information to disclose that would harm America.  Continue reading

Monday Morning Politics

Welcome to Monday Morning Politics – the place to catch up on the political stories from the weekend!

Almost every Monday I compile some of the political stories from the past weekend and put them in one place for all to see – and also offer some personal commentary!

Today I take a look at a super rich politician, I share the results of a poll, I check out who is on the ballot in Montana, I look at what Palin wrote, I write about Essmann getting out, I mention the “sweet 16” who applied for a job in Helena, I talk about signs signs everywhere a sign, I let everyone know that the flim-flam man is heading east, and I wish a very happy birthday to one of my old bosses!

Caught My Eye…

To many of my readers, your children will be starting back to school this week – congratulations on making it through another summer!  But to some, there’s one big holiday left before classes start again, so hang in there you’ve almost got it made.  I personally prefer school starting after Labor Day and ending before Memorial Day.

To celebrate the end to another fabulous summer, this is a special “Caught My Eye!” You really need to read it and catch that “end of summer” feeling!  To the new folks visiting for the first time, Caught My Eye is my weekly look at the stories I did not have time to write about during the week – offered up with some commentary and sometimes a bit of sarcasm!

This week we take a look at a special road trip, picketing, Michael Vick, Wi-Fi names, earthquake jokes, Danica, Cheney, school starting, high school football and more. Oh yes, I share some of the e-mails from “My Political Inbox,” too!

So grab a cup of something with caffeine in it, plus a donut or bagel (it’s Friday) and read on… Continue reading
