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 Rob Quist/Greg Gianforte and PAC money, Tim Fox, Jon Tester town hall, Ryan Zinke’s socks, American Health Care Act, Orrin Hatch, and much more!

Welcome to Friday and the big show I like to call “Caught My Eye!”
If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted here every Friday morning. 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 snarkiness to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.
Today’s topics include the GOP Presidential debates, Malmstrom’s Visitors, Chester and the Chester Cheetah, Daines & Planned Parenthood, Gianforte donations, and much more so buckle up!
Since Fox News has a show called “The Five” I think it’s perfectly OK to call the Republican Fox News/Facebook debate Thursday night “The Ten” and the debate for those candidates not fortunate enough to make the big show can be called, “The Seven.”
One big difference is “The Five” show on Fox News normally has several females participating, but “The Ten” won’t have any females and the “The Seven” will only have one, Carly Fiorina.
According to Fox News, the roster of 10 candidates was determined based on an average of the five most recent national polls.
Are you excited or what? Since Facebook is sponsoring the debate, maybe they should have the candidates attempt to post comments or a photo on their own Facebook page to see if they are at least a little tech savvy…
“I think he obviously has a higher priority for his fundraising and political ambitions than for the security of the nation.” -Republican U.S. Senator John McCain talking about Republican U.S. Senator Rand Paul (Source).
McCain is absolutely correct. Last week I pointed out that on Rand Paul’s Presidential website, you can purchase a “Filibuster Starter Pack.”
There are a lot of people, many who are in the U.S. Senate and House, who do not understand national security. That’s been evident the past week or so – especially with the “Stand with Rand” crowd which includes my U.S. Senator, Steve Daines (R-MT).
With Paul and people in the Senate who support him leading the way, the United States is less safe this morning because Paul placed politics over our nation’s security. On an added note, the Republicans who have now been in control of the U.S. Senate for about six months are proving they have problems leading.
