Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Montana Republicans - Redux

When I posted about this on Sunday, I was unable to locate a picture of the Obama Presidential Library.

Here is a video report.


 On Saturday, it was not something Sate Rethug Chairman Will Deschamps "was going to agonize over."  Now that it's received national attention, Rethugs are distancing themselves from it.  On Tuesday.  The convention ended on Saturday.

 "It no way represents the values of the Montana Republican party," said party spokesman, Chris Shipp, "and that's why we asked the hotel staff to have it removed from the property immediately."

I have no way of verifying the validity of "immediately."  The outhouse had previously been featured at the Memorial Day Parade in Corvallis.

Dave Hurtt, the brains behind the outhouse, claims he has received a lot of "thumbs up" for his construction.

Good clean fun - right?  Especially the reconstituted birtherism.  And, of course, there are no hints of either racism or sexism.  Don't the simulated bullet holes and the idea that prominent Dem women are prostitutes confirm the innocence of this good, clean fun?
