The Great Falls Tribune endorses Tester: “With state Sen. Tester you get an earnest and articulate man who we see lacking in one main area: seniority. However, his time in the Legislature and in an almost year-long campaign, has demonstrated good sense, a grasp of issues, and priorities that reflect those of mainstream Montana. If you know Jon Tester, it’s laughable to imagine him as a “tool of East Coast liberals” like Ted Kennedy or Hillary Clinton, as his critics maintain.” Huge endorsement for Tester.

Burns: “I’ve never raised taxes.” Burns’ record: “Bite me.” Wonkette snarks over the video.

The Conservative Voice predicts Burns will lose his seat. To give you an idea of how dire Burns’ situation looks to conservatives, the author also predicts the GOP will retain the House, and that Maryland’s Michael Steele (down by 12 points in the latest poll) will defeat incumbent Ben Cardin.

Burns running as a Democrat? He’s using Max Baucus in his ads – but Baucus wants none of that: “It misleads Montana voters and it implies that I don’t support Jon Tester. I strongly support Jon Tester. I think he’s the better man.”

Buzztail endorses Monica Lindeen.

Shane on the legislative races.

Pogie again finds fault with the Montana Standard and its editor, Gerry O’Brien.

Courtney Lowery has a roundup of Western political links.

GOP abandons another Republican seat. This time CO 7.

The notorious Mark T finds a fantastic letter smiting Christian fundamentalists. A creationist spams the comments. Hilarity ensues.

Next, the notorious Mark T defends habeas corpus. What’s really pathetic is that it needs defending.

Joey Galloway: “This unseemly circus and its clowns in Congress can’t go away fast enough and with enough dishonor and disgrace to suit the circumstances. Their place in America’s history is secure: They will go down as the worst administration and the worst Congress we’ve ever had. Period.”

Digby on the voters who are leaving the Republican Party. It’s not the Christian Right.

Another angry liber—er, conservative. Isn’t the President and his staff supposed to represent the entire country? And how can you do that by despising about 50 percent of its inhabitants?

Why the Mark Foley scandal matters: the GOP leadership thought that holding onto the seat was more important than protecting underage pages.

Ho hum. Yet another brewing GOP scandal. Is there anything these guys won’t try to make a buck off of?

Ho hum. Yet another example of Halliburton violating federal regulations.

House majority leader John Boehner: “Rumsfeld is the best thing that’s happened to the Pentagon in 25 years.” Remember, these are the guys making policy in DC. Had enough?

Economy slows to a crawl. (Not that 98% of us were feeling any effect of the “rebound.”) Who’s at fault? According to prominent Republicans, the media.

David Sirota considers the Democratic Party’s upcoming tangles after the election, win or lose.

Global warming to destroy global economy?

Lynne Cheney attacks Wolf Blitzer’s patriotism; Blitzer responds. Oops. Bonehead move by the VP’s wife.

Fox News’ commentator Col. Hunt endorses Jim Webb over George Allen. Watch Sean Hannity’s head explode.

O’Reilly handed his *ss on Letterman. Watch as an earnest, confused Letterman tangles with a right-wing demagogue who tries to over-simplify Iraq and put words in Dave’s mouth. Watch Dave bite back.

Dep’t of the obvious: Rush Limbaugh just doesn’t know when to shut up.

  1. OT: Got your email re: Radio Open Source, but I’m in Orlando all week, and won’t make it. I talked to them last week to let them know.

  2. Bummer! Sorry to hear that. You sure you can’t do a phone interview?
