Montana Republican Leader to Gov. Schweitzer: “Stick it up your ass!”

I’ve sometimes been accused of undermining my own credibility and sullying the reputation of the progressive netroots through my occasional, joyful use of profanity. Hmm. Well, if that’s true, and my foul mouth and I eventually wear out our welcome in the blogosphere, at least House Majority Leader Michael Lange has shown me that with “honor and integrity and diginity,” I’ll always have a home in the Montana State Republican Party.

What matters are your integrity and your honor and your values. [...] So my message to the governor is, “Stick it up your ass!” That’s my message to him, “Stick it up your ass!”

    good attempt at rationalization ,goldy.
    i think the point here is that most people find it offensive when used ‘occasionally’ and you discourse almost entirely in four letter words.

    Ghost @2,

    Really? I “discourse almost entirely in four letter words”…?

    Let’s see, my last 20 posts are displayed on HA’s front page, about 8,000 words total, and it looks like I used the word “fuck”… um… once. And apart from quoting Lange saying “stick it up your ass,” that’s really the only foul language I noticed off hand.

    Unless, of course, you’re literally talking about words with four letters in them, in which case, guilty as charged.

    It’s quite a convenient meme, that one can pretty much ignore anything I have to say, because I sometimes use the word “fuck”, but really, it’s just an excuse for those who are incapable of debating the facts and analysis I offer. You don’t like what I have to say, so you criticize the way I say it.

    no goldy…but good try. how many of your FRIENDS have told you the same thing?
    four letter words are like “language napalm”….you tend to remember them alot more that other words. they have a much longer half life, they stick in your mind because you are reading something written by a seemingly intelligent person and then you hit that word and you start thinking “what?”…and it breaks the whole thing up…
    i just think you are too smart to sound this ignorant. and it’s the little “F” attacks you have that really do it. come on….effedy eff eff eff………wasn’t that just a little while ago? someone else commented somewhere on your ,errr, USE, of language and you responded by having an “f” word tantrum……?????
    i actually think you are way too smart to be wasting your time like this.
    how is the pulitzer winning writing coming along?
    hey, it could happen, but you’d have to stick to it first, right?
    but it’s so much easier to hide behind “i can’t write for a major newspaper because they just don’t get me and my fabulous use of profanity”
    chicken…….

    Brian Schweitzer represents the future of Rocky Mountain politics. Lange represents the bitter, desperate past. What is it about Republicans that make them such “my way or the highway” people? I hope they keep it up. Their intransigence, belligerence, and arrogance will make them go the way of the Whigs.

    Ghost @6,

    chicken…….

    Forgive the foul language, but that’s a complete and utter load of bullshit. Remember all the predictions when I started on KIRO, that I couldn’t go 10 minutes without dropping the “f-bomb”? How’d that work out?

    I’m a writer. I write in a variety of genres and styles. I’ve written press releases, Off-Broadway musicals, technical documents, childrens books, even a handful of guest columns published in the P-I, Times and TNT. I use appropriate language in the appropriate places. If a major paper offered me a paid column, I’d take it in a heartbeat, and I think all the editors are smart enough to know that they wouldn’t have to worry about me handing in profanity laced copy.

    HA is a forum in which foul language is appropriate, and I’m not going to censor myself to accomodate the stodgy sensibilities of people who prefer polite lies over honest, if profane discourse.

    okay…but just how many things have been PUBLISHED? so you are a writer, to quote you BFD, but are you an author yet?
    my point is that this stuff will follow you around. no one wants to buy a children’s book written by a guy that ,not just occasionally, but constantly has his mouth and mind in the gutter.
    and it makes you look ignorant…which you are not. but unless someone wanted to wade through all this “stuff” you churn out in fits of pique…then they would never know that you weren’t just creepily ignorant,would they?
    this is what i don’t get at all….and why there won’t be a democrat in the white house in 2008 either [hey i watched that hysterical dem "debate"...wow, i haven't laughed that hard in YEARS!]……the farther left someone gets the less sense they make and use. look at you, this moments’ poster child, you keep doing the same thing over and over even though it doesn’t work, and your reasoning? those F-ers are trying to keep me down.

    how about that viaduct that “could fall any second”?
    i mean…where are the GOOD excuses? the whole state has been run by democrats since dirt was young and yet, here you are….a mess.
    see what i mean?
    politicians are just fast talking parlor snakes that want to get paid to do nothing [if possible] to grandstand, give you their opinions and if at all possible…never work a day in their lives.

    Wow, yeah, now that you mention it, this state is really a mess!

    I mean, here we have a large budget surplus, the WSDOT is proceeding on-time and on-budget on its huge road-improvements plan, scores are rising in the WASL, unemployment is down, home prices are maintaining their levels while dropping around the country, and we’ve passed landmark civil-rights legislation. Oh, and Chris Gregoire’s job approval is at 55% (http://www.surveyusa.com/clien.....417a0f661b).

    How could it possibly get worse?

  22. 24

    daddy-kins….if scores are rising [and they can only go UP in washington...so that wouldn't be difficult] how come the government just folded to the teacher’s union and suspended the science and math part of the test? cause, as we all know….who needs those?
    and the roads are BEING fixed. really? where?
    landmark civil rights legislation????
    OHMYGAWD……. that has to be the best comment ever! you passed a completely meaningless bill to allow gay unions? is that the “landmark” you are referring to? the one that was roundly MOCKED on almost every news program? that one?
    and gregoire’s approval rating is at 55% in a state chock a block full of complete morons, a large number of whom can barely read and write and are also registered democrat voters??????
    and this is GOOD?
    how?
    55%????
    wow….according to the left’s rhetoric on this i am surprised she doesn’t have saddam’s ratings………
    but i guess that will be next huh??? LOL.
    she also follows another democrat……remember old locke-step? and one before that ad nauseum……
    so what’s the big excuse???
    so here is the big question for you:
    in the giant petri dish/social engineering experiment that is washington state………a state that has been run by democrats ,as i have already stated since dirt was young, why was there anything to fix?????
    isn’t every democrat/progressive liberal telling the american people that if we just would elect democrats everything would not only be better it would be FAB???
    so……..i guess you guys there in washington state are either an aberration, or are really going to screw things up for your fearless national peeps come next election time, hmmmmmm?

    polls and ratings are only as good as the data they come from…..and most people don’t pay any attention to them…..FOR A REASON.
    god…you sound as if you are rooting for your team [tribe] without thinking. is this the reality of the sports fans that riot when their team doesn’t win?
    you know, and i can say this quite honestly, i would [and will] vote for whoever i think will move this country in a positive way. and that means positive for everyone….not just one side. can you say that?

    christmasghost,

    Fuck you. Fuck you and the high horse upon which you believe that you ride.

    Four letter words can be a very effective tool in getting someones attention, in taking control of a situation (ask any police officer) and, in your case, creating much ado about nothing.

    Goldy is right. You can’t make a cogent argument about his message, so you attack the words used rather than the point being made. It is actually very sad that you can’t defend your “principles” with solid, meaningful, thoughtful statements. You just rail against the messenger. Google “ad hominem” and you will see what I am talking about.

    Anyway, go fuck yourself. But by all means keep posting away here. I love the entertainment.

    The things that shock me most about this is that (1) Montana House Republicans allow cameras in their caucus meetings, (2) Montana House Republicans allow Democrats in their caucus meetings, (3) the Montana House Republican leader did not send everyone who is not a member of the caucus out of the room before engaging in such frank talk, including pages. While there is frank talk from time to time in legislative caucus meetings in Olympia — on both sides of the aisle and both sides of the rotunda — you do not see cameras, members of the opposite party, or pages in the room at the time. What were they thinking? Unreal.
