The most damaging phrase in our language is ‘We’ve always done it this way.’ – Grace Murray Hopper
Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re a first-time visitor, this is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes sprinkled with sarcasm, humor, and bluntness.
This week’s topics include Greg Gianforte’s fundraising, unemployment, squirrel problems, impeachment poll, Bronze Star, St. Louis Cardinals, Washington Nationals, friends, city of St. Louis is #1, and much more!
If an outsider looked at the Montana gubernatorial race, they would probably think that there’s no way that incumbent Governor Steve Bullock, a Democrat, can win re-election. But after examining his opponent, Republican Greg Gianforte, they could probably see why this race is competitive.
The Montana Governor’s race somewhat mirrors the presidential race: One side is tarnished in possible scandals and the other side basically turns people off.
It’s hard to get away from Gianforte – he’s on our TVs, radios, and on our computers.
Here are my very independent thoughts about Steve Bullock and Greg Gianforte with two weeks left before Election Day 2016. Enjoy.
