In the Mike Dennison article yesterday it said “they heard from others that she was considering running against Bullock in the 2016 Democratic primary for governor.”
Who are these “others?”
Sounds kind of made up, huh? It certainly qualifies as hearsay.
Great – let’s talk about it. Nothing like the rumor mill to warm up a cold Montana night!
So…what the hell type of governor did Angela McLean think she could be?
- Certainly one that’s opinionated. That seems fair.
- How about one that’s take-charge? It seems so.
- And let’s not forget someone that’s willing to do some work, maybe more than some.
I guess it’s the kind of governor that says, “damn it – it’s a Tuesday and I’m tired of sitting around this stuffy Capitol all day not doing anything! Let’s get out there and see what’s going on!”
Of course the high-priced staff will come in and say something like, “now, calm down – there’s plenty of work to do…how about that fundraiser?”
Damn it – the people of Montana don’t want that shit!
They want someone that says…
To hell with that – let’s head on up to Wolf Creek and see what’s going on at the Frenchman.
They got good fries up there – let’s go have some and make stop in at the gas station and see what’s going on there.
Hell, why not stop by the school while we’re at it and give a pep talk to those kids.
Jeez, while we’re up that way, why not just keep going? I haven’t been up to Great Falls in awhile – let’s see what problems they’re having on 10th Avenue, or is it 10th Street?
Hell, obviously I need to get up there.
Let’s head on through the mall and talk to some small business owners. How about an Orange Julius. Damn, those are good.
You know what? By that time it’ll be getting toward dark and you know how I feel about driving in the dark.
Since we got rid of that plane the Republicans were harping on – I never could see much of the everyday affairs from that high up anyways – we’ll have more than enough in the hotel room account.
Book us a room at the Super 8 and let’s hit up the bar across the street. Shit, nothing like a couple drinks after a hard day of listening to the people of the state.
And shit – we can listen to ‘em some more; they’re always chatty when the beer is flowing.
Since we’re up that way why don’t we just make it another governor’s tour? Let’s head on up to Havre and see how business is up there, see what the concerns of the people are.
Maybe we can hop on the train a bit, heading east to…gosh, do they stop anywhere else? Well let’s talk about that, damn it!
I know I’d like to head on over to Wolf Point and see what’s up there. Wolf Creek, Wolf Point…don’t want the two to get jealous.
Why not Sidney and Glendive after that, maybe down to Ekalaka even.
It might take a few nights at the hotel, but we’ll eventually swing around, work our way back west, through Broadus and Hardin, Laurel and Columbus and Livingston too.
Bozeman’s always a nice place to stop and then it’ll be up toward Townsend before swinging back into Helena, perhaps through the eastern section to see how things are faring.
It’ll be nice to get back to the Capitol again on Friday, perhaps even a little after 5. It won’t seem so stuffy then, more like home.
It feels that way when you’ve been out working, and that’s what good governors should know.
So when I say, “what the hell type of governor did Angela McLean think she could be?”…well, I guess that’s what I’d like to think.
