Not when the Washington Post is on your you-know-what.

Guess he’s going to have to stop making excuses now.

Oops. Linky fixed. Sorry.

John McCain is spending the Fourth at his home in Sedona, Arizona. Barack Obama is in Butte, America. He and his family will watch the parade and then host a picnic.

This is Obama’s second visit to the Mining City. I wonder if he’ll stop by the M&M Bar again?

Obama also has a state campaign manager and staff, and has been running TV spots. McCain has no staff and, really, no presence in Big Sky Country.

During the Republican caucuses in February, McCain came in third, behind Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. This year, he has yet to visit the state.

(He did visit once, and I went out to see him. It was 2000 and he was stumping for Conrad Burns. He flew into Missoula with Burns and held a rally out at Executive Aviation. McCain was working on campaign finance reform back then but had taken time out of his busy schedule to campaign for one of the most easily bought members of Congress. This irony was lost on the Republican Party faithful.)

Anyway, Obama wants Montana’s three electoral votes. McCain doesn’t seem to care. I applaud John McCain’s efforts in turning Montana from red to blue.
