That’s how these things get started, so I ask the question…
Is it possible for a splinter group in the Montana Democratic Party to take charge?
That might be down the road a ways, but I feel there’s potential here.
It starts with identifying the disgruntled Democrats that might be sick and tired of the D.C. taint on the Party.
For instance, I saw in a Cowturd comment today that Dirk Adams endorsed Caron Cooper at the Park County Democrats Annual Lasagna Dinner.
We know Cooper will never again be accepted into the current MT Democratic Party fold after running against Pat Noonan for the open PSC seat as an Independent.
Dirk Adams is one that’s never been accepted too much by the MT Dem’s current establishment, and we know he ticked-off Nancy Keenan at last year’s Park County shindig when he made some ‘off-color’ comments.
So we’ve got Cooper and Adams and I’ll go ahead and throw John Bohlinger in there as well.
Not much to get excited about, is there?
Well, what if I told you that we could have Amanda Curtis and Angela McLean in the ranks as well?
I feel Curtis is a good pick – she heads up the recently-formed Progressive Democrats caucus of the Montana Democratic Party, something that was allowed to form to try and contain some of the frustration over Bernie losing in the primary.
What McLean will do is anyone’s guess but I feel she’s a likely pick for a group that will go against the big money corruption and ethical misconduct that the current Party embraces.
Other than that…who?
And is it even possible?
We’re not talking about a third-party movement but a simple changing of the guard of the current party.
That’ll be mighty hard with Tester and Bullock pulling the strings, and even with lesser party heads like Eric Feaver and Nancy Keenan still around.
So this might not be possible by 2020, maybe even by 2024.
But gosh darn…things have a tendency to change awfully fast in politics, Montana politics especially.
Who would have thought we’d see such a crazy year this year, with Cooper filing a complaint against Cowturd?
Who would have thought Cowturd would label posts about Cooper as "porn" and "racist views"?
But that’s how these things get started.
