I know quite a few regulars here at Shebeen are unhappyMore El Caudillo del Mar a Lago Not only possible, but inevitable. And I find it inelegant for me to point out how many people profit from attacking the monsters those same people were involved in creating. , lost himself in the North Pole, and had the good graces of chasing the monster he created far from the damage it did.
But really-Mark Lashiko? Former Montana Governor Mark Lasico? There’s nothing wrong with that.he wrote to the party Daily Montanan:
Denial of these constitutional virtues inevitably weakens the glue that binds us together, leading to inexorable civil unrest and threatening the dissolution of our union. just look at the January 6, 2021 riots. These values constitute the cornerstone on which the Republic rests. Without their guiding light, freedom will be short-lived. You who are arrogantly content with the Republican “supermajority” do not seem to understand the risks of a head-on attack on the Constitution in the slightest, and as the world changes, we will eventually see you now. We do not remember that we will reap what we sow. More and more Montanaans of all parties are embracing the party’s absolutist ideology, its unrelenting demands for loyalty, its relentless pursuit of power, and the government’s triad. I am deeply concerned about the reckless urge to dismantle the Constitution for the purpose of controlling all sectors.
Objection: Shut up.
Lasikot signed on to the Bush Campaign Front as one of the most visible spreaders of bullshit among the entire battalion of fertilizer trucks sent to Florida during the long-running recount exercise in 2000.
Here he is on November 18, 2000.from Billings Gazette:
Observers in Florida said they filed an affidavit — they completed the affidavit. This is an affidavit under oath. There are at least two witnesses to this. We also know that her Theresa LePore, the election administrator there, overseer, simply brushed aside these concerns and these detections.[…]Our observers found Bush’s ballot in a pile of Gore. Both last night and this morning, Bush ballots were found in the Gore piles, counted as Gore votes, and Democratic observers spotted and pointed these out. A Democratic observer later apologized to his Republican counterpart, saying last night’s pile of ballots was different and, in his words, sabotaged.
Ballot papers are used as fans. In fact, Judge Barton, chairman of the Palm Beach Campaign Commission, had to warn counters not to use ballots as fans. The ballot may have a sticky note affixed to that portion of the ballot to mark the president’s choice. There is a counter for overworked and burnt out seniors.[…]Now imagine a 70-year-old man trying to count thousands of tiny cards with many stuck together to see where these little holes are at 2am. In fact, some of these people had to use flashlights.
I think that when Americans learn these things, they will start asking themselves what is happening in the name of God.
Man, take your fake and hurt idealism down the road and pitch it to other suckers. decades, and you were one of its major spokespokers at a key moment in its history 20 years ago. At that time (among other horrors since), I helped create a playbook recently used by the former president* and his people.
But today Rasikot tweets:
You recently experienced the resignation of a promising twice-elected Republican congressman. Because of the party’s coercive efforts to influence her exercise of discretion and to do what she thinks is right. Also, you recently accused two Republican lawmakers of not voting the way you thought was appropriate. Lately, in your caucuses and across the state, I’ve seen a growing number of Republicans leaving the party who feel bound by conscience and constitution. More than their party. But the most grave failure of your leadership is the relentless legislative encroachment of the government’s judiciary, which is strictly prohibited by Article 3(1) of the Constitution you have sworn to protect and defend.
Go away. Someone here remembers.
