While on the campaign trail last week, Montana Republican Ryan Zinke attended an event of about 30 people in Big Fork Montana. Zinke’s comments at the event make it clear just how crazy this candidate is, and just how much attention Montanans should be paying to keep this hysterical man out of office in 2014.
[box type=”shadow”]It’s time to stop the lies. Let’s talk about truth. Who trusts the U.S. government? No one in this room. I’ve served in 25 nations. I’ve seen where people don’t trust their government. We’re there. In the military, the last option is to send in the SEALs.[/box]
Promising pink kittens, purple unicorns and rainbows to his constituency, and tossing out some support for fracking, Zinke continued by saying “If the price of natural gas is stable and low, we can bring back manufacturing.” He continued on, insinuating that Americans don’t work hard enough to bring the country out of the Recession, saying that energy is the key to growing the economy and reducing the budget deficit. “We’re not going to cut our way out,” he said. “We’ve going to have to grow our economy.”
Zinke handed out 50-calibre bullets to each of the four men who sponsored the event before a crowd of about 30 people. The gesture is very telling, considering he was the military’s highest rated sniper at one time.
While sane heads would relegate this man to the sidelines, Zinke’s message of hate for Hillary Clinton, simple-minded religious fanaticism, and support of NRA profits seems to unite enough loons to put him at the head of the pack. Zinke is the frontrunner of 6 candidates for the seat of current Rep. Steve Daines, who is leaving the chair to run for Sen. Max Baucus’ seat.
