Who Does Hendrickson Think He is?

by jhwygirl

Conrad Burns?

  1. Pogo Possum

    Maybe he is wishing he was a Democratic legislator:


    “. . . . Kaufmann is the ninth sitting Montana legislator since the summer of 2006 to be hired by Democratic statewide elected officials for what have been for the most part high-paying state jobs. (See related story.)

    This hiring spree of sitting legislators by Democratic statewide elected officials, while legal here, is unprecedented by either political party in Montana over at least the past 40 years. Republicans have criticized these hirings as political cronyism and the use of the political spoils system in Montana.

    “I guess they’re going to hire the whole Legislature,” said House Minority Leader Scott Sales, R-Bozeman. “Maybe I should apply.”. . . .

  2. Feldspar

    Scott Sales isn’t qualified to hold one of these jobs. He wouldn’t even get an interview if he applied.

    I guess that’s one of the issues at play here, the Democrats in the legislature are generally well educated people with lots of relevant experience in government issues.

    The Republican’s we have in the legislature are usually just the richest rube in their district who inherited their wealth/business/land from mom and dad.

  3. Pogo Possum

    The “your stupid and we’re smart” line of analysis might be an immature argument you try in the 3rd grade when trying to resolve who gets to bat first at recess, Feldspar, but it doesn’t really address the issues of conflict of interest, cronyism, attempting to skirt Montana’s ethics laws and the very basic issue of separation of powers.

    You do realize that’s what this issue is about…….don’t you?
