Missoula Rep. Kevin Furey’s being called to active duty. The Missoula County Democrats selected his father, Tim Furey, to sit in for him during the Legislature’s special session. Good luck to both father and son, and our wishes for Rep. Furey’s safety.

The Guv’s budget man, David Ewer, gives us a peek at some of the tax and budget legislation you can expect to see this weekend.

Sen. Jim Elliot (D-Trout Creek) and Rep. Gordon Hendrick (R-Superior) seek to explain to the The Clark Fork Chronicle and the Frenchtown School Board the reason for the Legislature’s gridlock.

Jon Tester profiled in Men’s Journal: “Montana’s Organic Farmer.”

Baucus: Hedge fund tax bill “nowhere in sight.” He’s not so wishy-washy on banning the AMT, though. Ugh.

You know why I won’t be supporting Hilary Clinton? Meet Mark Penn.

Let’s see…Chevron gave Saddam Hussein illegal kickbacks in the infamous oil-for-food scam…and Condi Rice was on the board of directors at the time…

Let’s see…the administration wants to nominate Dell Dailey to the State Department post that’s responsible for coordinating international efforts to combat terror…only he was in charge of our country’s rendition program…a kidnapper…seems to me this is a no-brainer thumbs-down vote for the Senate.

Let’s see…Iraqi’s parliament signed a petition demanding US withdrawal from their country…um…why, exactly, are we there?

Let’s see…a former US military commander urges Congress to “act now to protect our fighting men and women” from the President’s failed strategy…so, um, why can’t we get enough votes to override Bush’s veto?

Michael Erickson managed to acquire an early copy of the schedule for the 2008 Democratic National Convention
