Excellent opinion piece by former Governor Brian Schweitzer:

The last paragraph is priceless:

OR… Maybe these legislators are just looking for an excuse to reconvene in Helena so that they can all belly up to public money trough and get the taxpayers to pay them salaries while they play political games on your dime/dollar. Or, maybe they want to be filled up again with more thick steaks and old whiskey paid for by lobbyists who curry their favor.

"... 88% of their elected Republican Montana legislators have signed a letter to investigate the integrity of this historic Montana election of theirs."

Either that, Gunnar, or they are criminally stupid.

Umm... I find it really difficult to take anything Brian Schweitzer says seriously. His inaction is a large part of why Montana is governed by a republican from New Jersey, why a Senate seat is held by a republican from California, why the lone congressional representative is a republican from Maryland, and the new seat will be filled by another republican from Californian. He had his chance. He didn't hit his ball past the ladies tee-box. He needs to STFU.

His inaction on what, Richard? He was a Democratic governor with a Republican-controlled state legislature.

In 2014, he could have run against Daines and won pretty handily. He did nothing. He could have run against Rosedale. He did nothing. His inaction when it mattered, allowed a lot of big money into the state which has trickled into local elections and allow all of these austerity-minded jackwagons a seat at the table, and put the rest of us on the menu. When you have some political capital and you simply sit on it and then try and make noise after the fact, you become pretty useless to the process.
