I don’t know if you’ve read this, but you simply must. It’s the dumbest thing I’ve seen out of the Montana Legislature in a while, which is truly saying something.
Let’s just take a quick peek at the final paragraph:
I sincerely hope that in regards to this serious issue affecting our schools, children, and communities we can set aside our differences, take the high road, and do the right things for the right reasons, not political gain.
But just this issue? Well here’s one for you, since you’re all fired up about this – since the MT GOP has decided to make this a game, and since the MT GOP is a majority in both houses, it’s your own damn fault that we’re all playing a game. So don’t bitch when your pet concern falls into the same trap. You set it.
There are many serious issues facing the schools and while you, personally, have been fairly open and mostly fair on some issues, the fact is the MT GOP in general, and especially in the House (which, yes, I know, you have no direct control over) has been anything but pleasant, open, honest or willing to work with anyone but their own bigoted, myopic, foolish and wholly-uninterested-in-actually-doing-the-right-thing cronies. Again, they made this a game, and are playing to win it. And that means that Montanans lose, but hey, we elected y’all, so we get what we asked for.
Senator Peterson, if you don’t like the game, perhaps you should actually lead and make change. How you lead a mad mob of morons, I don’t know, but you’re the elected official and President of the Senate, so one would think you’d have a guess. Personally, I’d guess you’ve already lost by sending out this press release, tho.
There have been many dumb things to erupt out of the capitol this session, this is just one more.
