Schweitzer Rope-A-Dope

Love him or hate him, you can’t deny that Montana’s Governor is a shrewd player.

Brian Schweitzer’s letter to Attorney General Steve Bullock asking for preparation for a state government shutdown is pure poetry- if you like the “twistin’ in the wind” metaphor….

Republican lawmakers have spent the session wasting time (and our money) on ridiculous issues instead of intelligently addressing budget issues (not non-existent “crises”).

Will the people of Montana see through the shenanigans? Will the budget surplus be maintained? Will Schweitzer come out (again) smelling like a (freshly veto-branded) rose?
