It was fun watching the continual decline of the Montana Democratic Party this week.
Their latest gambit is a COPP complaint against Christi Jacobsen. Dems had their attack blog give you the news after their lapdog reporter - Phil Drake - gave it to you in the Spitoon.
In case you don’t know, Jacobsen is running to take over the SoS job from her boss, Corey Stapleton.
Dems in Helena - mainly the blogger Don Pogreba - have a real hard-on when it comes to Stapleton.
They can’t stop talking about the guy.
Personally, I think it’s a quasi-closet-homosexual type of infatuation. I really can’t explain Don’s continual writings on Stapleton any other way.
Anyways, Stapleton is leaving that office and Dems are in a bind.
You see, they actually think a gay man can win this office.
I know, you can’t fix stupid.
Democrats don’t understand the Bible. They don’t understand God. They don’t understand that sticking your penis in another man’s ass is very, very off-putting to the majority of Montanans.
And yet they think a gay man can win this office.
Well, outwardly they think that. Inwardly, they know this race is lost to them. They wish they could get a viable candidate. They wish they could do that without alienating Bennett.
Alas, they can’t.
So the Montana Dems will have to chalk SoS up in the loss category this year.
I suspect that when Bennett loses this race in 276 days, he’ll move to Seattle or San Francisco or wherever else he can get a nonprofit, gay-friendly job that has something to do with politics.
Hell, maybe Denise Juneau will give him a job.
We do know that he won’t be working in Helena. I personally think that Scott Sales will probably come out with the SoS job.
And then there’s the COPP complaint.
Old people make love faster than COPP can address a complaint.
Typically takes years for that silly office to get its shit together. When Gianforte takes over next year, it might be a good idea to look into how we can get rid of COPP once and for all.
And remember, there’s always a lot of COPP complaints that the Dems don’t want you to know about.
Montana Dems...so much talk, so little else.
