Yesterday, Montana’s Governor Brian Schweitzer was quick to dismiss any truth in all of the rumors
he started that are apparently flying around about his plans after his term is up. Due to term limits, he is prevented from making himself our king running for another term and according to him, the rumors have been circulating in democratic circles for WEEKS. He would like Montanans to know that he has no plans to run for President and that a recent New Hampshire poll about such a bid by Schweitzer had nothing to do with him. Ever the boastful blowhard sheepish cowboy, Schweitzer pointed out that Obama will likely be interested in the job anyway and said “It’s kind of silly, really. I’m just learning how to be governor of Montana.”
Many in Montana would agree with that assertion considering bashful Brian’s recent embarrassing lawsuit against over a dozen online travel booking agencies over a dispute over how bed taxes in the state are assessed. At the 2010 Montana Economic Development Summit, he very publicly attacked the leaders of Travelocity after they announced formal plans to promote tourism in the state.
To any of you who may think this isn’t worthy of a story, think again. It has been the Billings Gazette headline for hours. Don’t worry about Schweitzer though, according to him, he always gets a job. Whether it will be doing some fencin’ on that land that the public no longer can access, practicin’ his Arabic, or vyin’ for higher office, we can expect to have him hanging around for years to come, embarrassin’ the Big Sky State.
