we can all come together for good causes. In this case, while I’m none-too-happy with the Osprey/City of Missoula/stadium boondoggle, it’s a no-brainer to help out Missoula resident and conserva-blogger Dave Budge when he asked if I could give a fundraiser for the Rocky Mountain Ballet Theatre a plug.

This Saturday’s Osprey game has a block of seats reserved for RMBT patrons and benefactors, all for the regular $10/ticket price. Half of that ticket prices goes directly to RMBT…and you get some dance thrown in pre-game and for the 7th inning stretch.

I have to say, the image of ballet on a baseball field is pretty cool.

Here’s a link to buy the tickets online – Osprey Online Group Portal…or you can call the RMBT (2704 Brooks, Missoula (406) 549-5155) directly to get the tickets, which avoids the service charge on using the online portal.

Dave does, of course, explain this a little better. Plus there’s a picture of his daughter in her tutu and ballet slippers – something from the proud father who’s never understandably so let an opportunity slip to brag on his beautiful daughter.


“A New Foundation”
er, “Winning the Future”
er, “Put Country Before Party”

I don’t know about you guys, but I see some problems in the Prez’s messaging:

President Obama told a crowd at a battery plant in Holland, Michigan, this afternoon that Republicans must “find a way to put country ahead of party…”

Underlining the takeaway of Obama’s speech today, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer tweeted: “Key element from today’s remarks — Put Country before Party.

Obama’s new slogan, “Put Country before Party,” is awfully close to Sen. John McCain’s, R-Ari., failed 2008 presidential slogan “Country First.”

After telling Congress to “Put Country before Party” Obama is scheduled to fly to New York City where he will raise money for the Democratic Party at the Ritz Carlton.”

Go get ’em tiger! What can be more ‘merican than raising campaign funds at the Ritz? Right after you admonished republicans to be patriots and adopted their sloganeering tactics for your own. Is that what you mean by “putting country before party”?. Wow!
