MT Senate 2014: Silence

When the New York Times published the story last Wednesday (July 23) about U.S. Senator John Walsh and plagiarism, the firestorm was pretty bad. On Friday I said Walsh should try to move this off the front page/evening news quickly, and move on with his regular schedule.

If he tried that, it’s not working.

After a couple of interviews on Friday I don’t know what Walsh did. It looks like he may have taken some time off for reflection and thought. Maybe he is just holed up in a bunker waiting for the storm to pass and will start his offensive this week. Heck, maybe he took the weekend off to rewrite his paper for the Army War College.
