Montana’s show-boating Governor has taken his circus tent on the road again. Our dear governor has donated one of his infamous branded Veto plaques to be auctioned off on e-bay to not only do a little personal grandstanding but to also raise some cash for NARAL Pro-Choice Montana.
The NARAL Pro-Choice Montana website says if you are the winning bidder Governor Schweitzer will write a personalized message of your choice on this historic veto plaque. The auction started on July 17th and is already up to a whopping $265. Not exactly a bidding frenzy considering the auction has been going on for 8 days but at least they will be getting some free media play by our award winning gullible press.
The governor vetoed a record breaking total of 78 bills last session and branded a plaque for each and every one of them right on the capitol steps. I hope everyone will give some serious consideration to electing a governor this November who can work with both parties and not have to resort to childish theatrics such as the Veto branding sideshow. In retrospect the republicans weren’t much better when they appeared with their “JOBS” branding iron a few days later and ran their own side-show.
