Maher nailed it last week when he openly criticized Obama for not doing more to push forward a public option. This week he takes on Democrats. It starts at the 2 minute mark:

is it still Senator William A. Clark?, copper king of Butte- a man so crooked and corrupt that mark twain actually wrote this:

“He is said to have bought legislatures and judges as other men buy food and raiment. By his example he has so excused and so sweetened corruption that in Montana it no longer has has an offensive smell. His history is known to everybody; he is as rotten a human being as can be found anywhere under the flag; he is a shame to the American nation, and no one has helped to send him to the Senate who did not know that his proper place was the penitentiary, with a ball and chain on his legs. To my mind he is the most disgusting creature that the republic has produced since Tweed’s time.” – samuel clemens (1907)

or is max baucus going to give old will a run for his money??? the competition appears pretty stiff but i have confidence that max is well on his way to earning a reputation that may bring him within at least rifle shot of toppling the old copper king himself...and by listening to his biggest contributors in the health insurance industry who are spending millions to block meaningful health care for working class and middle class americans, max just might get a place in history after all.

update: in the interest of fairness i thought it would be a good idea to include conrad burns but as you can see, conrad is no match for max when it comes to raising cash….

I read the obit of a distant acquaintance in today’s Missoulian. She was six months younger than me.  Cancer took her way too early, at 54-years-old. 

I know Marcia Trotter’s sisters and brother better than I knew Marcia.  It’s a large, well-known Missoula Family.

It’s sad news but the final line in the obit really caught my eye:

To honor Marcia’s memory, her family requests that you support universal health care.

Got that Denny, Max and Jon?
