In a wide-ranging interview by Marin Cogan, for The National Journal, Governor Brian Schweitzer committed political harry carry. A designed fluff piece intended to show the Governor as a viable alternative to Hilary Clinton, it was proven that Mr. Schweitzer isn’t ready for the national stage, he and his mouth need to stay on the ranch!
Think Howard Dean, Gary Hart, Rick Perry…. this guy is D-O-N-E!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
His commentary of Eric Cantor and men of the South……
Last week, I called him on the night Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated in his GOP primary. “Don’t hold this against me, but I’m going to blurt it out. How do I say this … men in the South, they are a little effeminate,” he offered when I mentioned the stunning news. When I asked him what he meant, he added, “They just have effeminate mannerisms. If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say—and I’m fine with gay people, that’s all right—but my gaydar is 60-70 percent. But he’s not, I think, so I don’t know. Again, I couldn’t care less. I’m accepting.”
His comments on Senator Diane Feinstein……
Schweitzer is incredulous that Feinstein—considered by her critics to be too close to the intelligence community—was now criticizing the (National Security Agency). “She was the woman who was standing under the streetlight with her dress pulled all the way up over her knees, and now she says, ‘I’m a nun,’ when it comes to this spying!” he says. Then, he adds, quickly, “I mean, maybe that’s the wrong metaphor—but she was all in!”
When you are a Democrat with ambitions of higher office, pissing off gays and women probably isn’t a smart move. I expect the Governor will learn that fact over and over again, by end of day today.
Governor, you are now a non-entity….. Shortest Presidential Campaign in History!
