On A Positive Note…

by lizard

Things are looking up, Missoula. The Griz won, the young man who violated Missoula with his Rape Nation vandalism got the disproportionate justice a mountain college town with a PR problem deems necessary, and Flathead’s high-end housing market is rebounding, according to some generous Sunday “reporting” by the Missoulian.

In that particular article, I found this insightful comment from Theresa Mondale, who works for United Country Real Estate:

“Yes, people are starting to realize the end of the world is not coming,” Mondale says. “I routinely have high-end potential buyers contacting me.”

For Democrats in damage control mode, the weekend was made significantly less depressing with the Friday jobs numbers showing unemployment dipping below 8%.

To make that news even sweeter, the talking point from the lunatic right was so conspiratorial, anyone who touched that particular effluent of paranoia got deemed a jobs truther.

Good times.

Of course, there are always downers, like that judge who swept away those pesky limits on Montanan’s bulging check books and their deep-pocketed capacity to give top dollar to their favorite candidates.

But mostly, things are fantastic.

Oh, and only 30 days left…
