Here’s a good example over on Reptile Dysfunction earlier today when we were talking about currently-spiraling-out-of-control Montana Democratic mouthpiece site Intelligent Discontent:
I thanked Talbot for his thoughts.
He does have a good point, however – voters in my district don’t care about me.
I think they would if they knew I existed, which access to the VAN would allow.
Alas, Democrats won’t give me access to that.
I went ahead and called the number on the Montana Democrats’ contact page around 2:30 today.
I got a woman and told her I needed to get access to the VAN. She told me to contact Amanda Frickle.
I mentioned that I’d emailed Frickle two times and that these were unanswered.
She suggested I call back next week.
I asked for Frickle’s extension.
She said that was unavailable.
I then asked to be transferred to the voicemail and I was.
So I left a message. Will it be returned? I doubt it.
Maybe Talbot is right – maybe they won’t send me the list.
Well, I guess it means I can’t be a Democrat in Montana.
That’s sad. That’s sad that the political party is kicking me out, saying I’m not Democrat-enough for them.
- Am I too moderate, too radical, not soft enough on Wall Street or bankers…what is it?
- Maybe it’s my refusal to abide by Bullock’s corruption, or her husband’s.
- Perhaps it’s my utter refusal to believe that Nancy Keenan and the gaggle of idiots she brought with her from D.C. will somehow save the state.
It could even be my continual pointing out that we’re losing ground in this state, our ideas are not resonating, and people think we don’t care about them.
Because of that I’m branded a traitor and shown the door.
Well, that’s the Montana Democratic Party for you today.
Please, voice your discontent in the comments. Tell us what you think of the party today.
