Caught My Eye…

When the President does it, that means that it’s not illegal. – Richard M. Nixon

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 Montana U.S. House race, Alert Message, Montana U.S. Senate 2018, the Sergeant Schultz defense, James Comey, shots fired update, Armed Forces Day, and much more!

Tuesday Political Potpourri

Here’s a roundup of some political news for your Tuesday – plus commentary! Enjoy!


Lee Newspapers is reporting that Montana State Senator Jonathan Windy Boy (Democrat) “owes more than $146,000 in federal taxes, penalties and interest, according to a document filed by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.”

And here I thought the IRS was only going after people who leaned to the right…

I can agree with that.

The guides were handed out legally, “at least 100 feet from the precinct doors” and then people left them in the precinct.

I guess people “accidentally” left the voter guides behind. Someone, somewhere, just had a light bulb come on…
