The reason was this tweet that Montana Cowgirl sent out around 6 AM:
I didn’t notice it until about an hour later, but MT Cowgirl had also updated the post they’d put up last night.
Yes, the Wall-Street-Democrats actually felt the need to attack me:
Gosh, what a mistake.
It’s not a mistake because they’ll feel my wrath and suffer because of it – let’s not die of laughter.
No, mainly it’s a mistake because no one gave a shit until they “sunk to my level.”
So they made a mistake. I goaded them – like they so often try to do with GOPers in this state – and they bit right into it.
Now they look stupid.
And here I am writing about Montana politics again today, even though I wasn’t going to until tomorrow, when I offered my wrap-up of this week’s changes.
Oh, the changes have been immense.
- First, Gianforte had his campaign created for him this week. Democrats handed him all the message points and all the attacks he’ll need going into 2016.
- Next, opinion of Bullock has fallen considerably. I’m reminded of the comment Chuck Johnson heard about Melcher back in October 1976: “He really does convey an air of superiority.”
- Finally, the cracks are clear.
On that last point I’m talking about the Wall Street Democrats vs. the traditional Democrats that have operated in Montana.
The latter would not much be interested in giving $67 million in interest payments to bankers over 20 years or in raising money out of state all the time.
That’s just my opinion.
You’ll get a lot of that on this site and I’m sure that’s why you read it.
The nice thing is you know who you’re dealing with here. I put my name on my writing and you can always call me on the phone – just visit my contact page to get the number.
So I’m about as transparent as you can get. I mean, even on the “bigotry against people of the Jewish faith” post I put 33 references.
I don’t see as many references on MT Cowgirl fluff, but that’s fine. I enjoy reading the site, laughing, shaking my head a bit.
Maybe it’s because I’m a writer who puts his stuff out there for anyone to look at and review. I have a thicker skin.
You have to realize if you put yourself out there, people are going to comment, they’re going to attack sometimes.
When you have confidence in yourself and your abilities, this will not faze you.
“Have a thick skin and a tender heart,” Steve Daines said in February 2014 when I asked him about politics. I always thought that was damn good advice.
It’s not always that easy to have the thickest of skins, however, especially when you use your real name. Many people equate political attacks as attacks on…whatever they’re insecure about.
Maybe it’s their income or their job or their weight or looks or family or religion or who the hell knows what.
When you have a person like that, anything negative/critical you say will be seen as an attack on that “deficiency” of theirs.
It’s sad how lacking in confidence we’ve become in this country, how warped by fear we are.
If it’s not fear about guns or ISIS or refugees it’s fear that we’re not good enough, can’t make it, or will never get ahead.
Anyways, I suppose I digress a bit.
I just don’t feel threatened by nameless and anonymous attacks. I’m not intimidated by them either.
Honestly, do you think MT Cowgirl will ever put themselves in a position where they’ll have to be named?
They’re nothing more than a paper tiger, one who has seen its roar subside and ‘magnificence’ decline.
Real people make attacks by looking you in the eye and telling you exactly how they feel.
I’ll be doing that from the 2017 Legislature on a daily basis in a little more than a year from now.
I fully expect I’ll have a challenger in my district, maybe even one compelled to run by the Democratic powers that be.
Oh well – I enjoy a good challenge.
For I know at the end of it I can do just what I say – speak directly to power, looking them in they eye, and giving them a piece of my mind.
That’s why I’m running for the 2017 Legislature – to do something!
Those at MT Cowgirl are content to sit behind their anonymity, making suggestions on how things should be done.
Some of us, however, roll up our sleeves and go about the hard task of getting elected so we can actually make a difference.
And if we don’t win we come back, again, and again...and again.
Hopefully we’ll see a lot of difference in 2016.
