Lessons From Montana’s Special Election Of May 25


1.       Republicans cannot coast to re-election even in districts where they have had big majorities.

2.       Republicans have a lot of money to spend, and are being forced to spend it in those districts.

3.       The pressure of unexpected competition, and unwelcome questions about taking healthcare away from low income people, tend to provoke displays of Republicans' dark side.

4.       The Democratic establishment’s small and late funding of progressive nominees slows and reduces the pressure on Republicans.

5.       Montana Democratic nominee Rob Quist deserves our thanks for a valiant effort, and his progress in putting the "country" back in "country music."

Blue America’s latest music video (above) puts even more country back into country music, to help raise funds for many other progressives who are making the personal sacrifice of running for Congress without money from big business, PACs or, in general, the Democratic establishment.
Goal Thermometer
Check it out, and we think you’ll agree, that

freedom’s just another word when monied politicians leave us nothing left to lose
and feeling good is easy when supporting Progressive Democratic candidates.

Lesson #1 should be that R voters will vote for the R candidate even when the party and the R candidate are worse than they've ever been before.

R voters won't vote for a D candidate no matter how good he is.

And, finally, D voters are becoming wise to the party and are staying home in numbers that mean defeat where victory should have been possible.

And all of this is just fine with the DxCCs and DNC. They don't want majorities. They only want to be just relevant enough to keep donations flowing from the big money.

The rest of the "lessons" are just looking at the ink blot and seeing fairies and unicorns.
