So, we’ve already addressed the Bigskydemocrats.COM (instead of .ORG) thing. But since the parody site creator gave a tell-all interview to the Missoula Independent recently, I’m inclined to say that this dude is a straight-up weirdo.

If you post your thoughts or observations on Montana blogs, then dig this: Rep. Dennis Rehberg is reading.
In a wide-ranging interview with the AP, Rehberg defends Sen. Conrad Burns in his fight to shed the Abramoff scandal, tries to put to bed rumors he was considering running for Burns’ seat or against Burns himself or even against Baucus in 08, and, perhaps most importantly, refers to himself in the third person as if he were “The Rock” or some other egomaniac: more
National Public Radio's Morning Edition ran a feature this morning on our Junior Senator and his questionable decisions regarding Casino Jack Abramoff's clients.
John Ydstie does a great job of laying out the history of Jack Abramoff's client, the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe of Minnesota's quest for a $3 million dollar gift.
Everyone knows Burns is going to be facing some serious competition this year for his re-election bid.
As heard on Hotline today in their story titled
"MONTANA: No Last-Minute Surprises, Except For The Blue Guy":
"A total of 10 candidates had filed by day's end," a number "so unwieldy that it prompted Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D) to wander down the hall," hollering: "Is it too late to file for U.S. Senate?"
Schweitzer, referring to State Senate Min. Leader Bob Keenan (R) filing from Costa Rica: "Is there any statute that limits the number of candidates for U.S. Senate? I probably would have filed for the U.S. Senate race, but I couldn't get to a tropical beach fast enough to mail it in."
The Smoking Gun has it - apparently our Vice President is too important to turn on his own damn television...chriminy.
The Secretary of State's listing of non-legislative candidates has two candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives.
And they're both Democrats.
