I ain’t as good as I once was,
My how the years have flown,
But there was a time,
Back in my prime,
When I could really hold my own
– As Good As I Once Was (Scott Emerick /Toby Keith)

Topics that I am providing commentary about today include my observations from Tuesday’s Primary Election, Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edwards, August Recess, Plagiarism, and One More Thing!

Campaign 2014: Post-Election Analysis

It was a pretty boring election night in Montana, except when the Montana Secretary of State’s website with election results went down a few times. Most of the candidates I thought would win actually won and the races that I was interested in were not that close.

Thanks to all the people who visted my website and followed me on Twitter throughout the evening.
