Re: “Undermining democracy

Last night Mr. Trump's refusal to answer whether he would concede to Secy. Clinton if he lost the election goes right to the heart of this paragraph:

"Trump's comments undermine the very foundation of American government. They are different from smears against his opponent, bigoted rhetoric or boasts about forcing himself on women. So many things Trump has said in the last year have been crass or dishonest, but they were politics—attempts to win votes within our electoral system. His new lies, utterly unsubstantiated, are designed to convince his supporters to reject that system. They attack democracy itself."

At the very least, no matter what her alleged crimes and hated reputation, Secretary Clinton has given every indication that she will abide by rule of law. Mr. Trump has amply demonstrated that he has not intention of doing so. This alone is the bright line separating the two candidates.

Re: “The long view

Thanks for brightening up my day. Attorney General Fox certainly marches to the beat of his own drummer, however off the beat it is.

Re: “A matter of distinction

"But as we all learned at prom, just because you embrace something doesn't mean you know what to do with it." Classic line. Good article!

Re: “Armed and ready

That last paragraph is an instant classic. This is going into my virtual "keep" file! Thanks for the laugh.

Re: “Out of the dark

I agree. We need to change the term "dark money" (a loaded racist term according to Mr. Bopp). I encourage Commissioner Motl to substitute the more politically correct term: "Fucking sneaky, deceitful and evil money."

Re: “Build your own legal case

It seems like simplifying procedures and form management would be an effective way to reduce costs and improve outcomes. The article mentions that the court has asked the legislature to improve the rules...has there been any traction on that? Are any legislators or officials from DOJ (or, for that matter, anyone in the Governor's office) pushing the issue in the legislature?

Re: “Montana's best brews, ranked

Conspicuously missing are Lewis and Clarks Tumbleweed (which on this scale should be #0) and Blackfoot River Brewings Black Diamond Stout. Both are award winners and both routinely sell out at brewing events.
