The logical Democratic presidential nominee is . . .

I took the New York Times Democratic candidate quiz, and for me it showed Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren tied at the top, followed by Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. In a normal election I would agree with those results, but this is not a normal election. What the quiz did not ask was, “How […]

Don “K” Kaltschmidt, the chairman of the Montana Republican Party, has a blistering guest column in Montana newspapers this week. In that column, he accuses Gov.

It’s okay to talk politics on Thanksgiving Day

Marty’s photo of the day #2375: I had this great caption in mind for a turkey photo I had taken several years ago. Of course, with all the photos on my hard drive, finding a specific photo isn’t always easy. Then I came across this moose photo I took several years ago. I’m thankful for […]

In honor of the ass-kicking. . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2360: Last night’s election provided the best political news in, well . . . more that a year. So in honor of the Republicans getting their ass kicked last night, I went in search of a happy political photo on my hard drive. This photo, from 2006, shows me with […]
