Jon Tester has trouble with his reading glasses

That breaking news comes courtesy of The Hill. It's a little less newsworthy than the publication's weekend story on how the NRA may be the deciding factor in Tester's big Senate race against Denny Rehberg, but so be it. Here's what the "In the Know" column found:

C-SPAN cameras captured Tester’s black-rimmed eyewear becoming a victim of gravity time and time again — moving down his schnoz until they appeared as if they were about to fall off.

The Hill goes on to report that Tester may have trouble with his reading glasses, but his campaign does not struggle with spinning silly glasses stories into digs on Rehberg.

When ITK inquired about how Tester’s eyesight aid just wouldn’t stay put, his campaign manager, Preston Elliott, saw an opportunity to turn the focus on Tester’s GOP rival for his Senate seat in 2012, Rep. Denny Rehberg: “Jon’s reading glasses may slip every now and then, but that’s pretty minor compared to Congressman Dennis Rehberg, whose entire career slipped after he sued Montana firefighters.”

Oh, snap! No he didn't.

(This is going to be a long campaign.)
