Coincidence?

Correlation?

Better go climbing TOMORROW, just to be safe.

Edited for clarity.

I have not stretched anything really.

It is going to be fun watching him go down in flames.

As we wrote last week, the Constitution is a bipartisan document, written for the ages to guard against wrongdoing by officials of any party. Mr. Whitaker’s installation makes a mockery of our Constitution and our founders’ ideals. As Justice Thomas’s opinion in the N.L.R.B. case reminds us, the Constitution’s framers “had lived under a form of government that permitted arbitrary governmental acts to go unchecked.” He added “they knew that liberty could be preserved only by ensuring that the powers of government would never be consolidated in one body.”

For the sake of McCain’s memory, I hope to hell that Sinema prevails.

There are still a lot of ballots to be counted in Arizona, and many of them are in Maricopa County, where Phoenix lies...this is Sinema’s district. Still, the vote has swayed back and forth between Sinema and McSally.

Anyone wanna bet on which candidate McCain would back?

Good question. I was watching the election coverage on ABC tuesday night . Megan McCain was on there, and she said she is not a Sinema fan.

Brad,

I'd be happy to. But there's that one little catch about being able to eat and pay bills.

On the other hand, perhaps you'd be willing to support me and the family so I can go climbing more? In the style to which we'd like to become accustomed, of course ;)

10b4me! Re your question:

Yes!

From CNN:

Tester was widely seen early in the cycle as a vulnerable Democrat due to the fact Trump won the state by 20 points just two years ago. But Tester's unique brand as a farmer from Big Sandy and his personal connection to the state provided a contrast to Republican Matt Rosendale, whose ties to the state were constantly in question. President Trump flew to Montana four times to campaign against Tester.

From information up-thread & Montana friends, VP Pence also flew to Montana 3 times, & Donald Jr. 5 times,to campaign for the "carpet-bagger" real estate promoter from Maryland that Trump supported.

I know Trump went to Nevada at least twice to tout his candidate for Senate, but I don't have details.

Trump's wasted campaign trips at American Taxpayer expense, appears to be news the MSM is currently not sharing with us.

McSally is a big-time Trump supporter. All due respect to Megan, but that should pretty much make clear which way McCain would go.

The headline today in Montana “ Tester wins by poaching Trump voters, holding his base”
The article states that Tester won 14% of votes from people who voted for Trump in 2016.
Of that 20% of women turned their vote to Tester, and 8% of republican men.

When Tester was asked his opinion about contending with Trump’s 4 visits this campaign his response was “I look forward to the President’s next visit to Montana in hopes that it concerns the real issues affecting Montanans”. Every State could benefit with him in the Senate.
Jon Tester, the only working farmer in the Senate and possibly DC.

Also of Montana interest, 9 Native Americans were elected to State house.

I am glad that the people of California rejected Props. 3 and 6. Prop. 6 was an obvious Republican Party (third party status in California) publicity attempt, but 3 was a sneaky similar attempt to benefit big agriculture (a heavy funder of Republicans) at the expense of taxpayers.

When water issues make sense with regard to conservation, environment, agriculture, and the population, I am in favor of expending state funds or issuing bonds. Past history of water bond issues has shown the California population also goes this way. However, when water bonds are blank checks to big ag with a cynical ploy, I am glad that the people saw through the ruse. Yes, there are populations in my area who do not have drinkable water due to agriculture, but the solution to their problem is not to dump a bunch of bond money to big ag in hopes that the water would "tickle down" from ag to those without water. I am glad that it appears that the California population understands that more dams is not always the answer.

Before you ag supporters flame on, I come from a family that were Central Valley farmers. I worked on my family's farm. I saw how farmers thought that water from the great river next to the farm that we pumped the hell out of was an unlimited source.
