Worse, he traveled to Ohio to rip on his own constituents. Perhaps he’s under the impression those rednecks will never be able to ‘Google this on the tubes’.
Just the other day, Politico said Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer’s rhetorical prowess is a valuable asset and a dangerous liability for his future political ambitions.
Case in point: Less than two weeks ago, Schweitzer delivered the keynote address at the Ohio Democratic Party’s annual dinner. In the speech, he told a gripping tale of his grandmother immigrating to the United States to start a new life.
In the same address, Schweitzer dipped into darker rhetoric to blast Caucasian Montanans as racist toward American Indians…
…“All over Montana, you can walk into a bar, a café or even a school or a courthouse and just listen for a while as people talk to each other,” Schweitzer explained, shortly after noting 93 percent of his state’s population is classified as Caucasian. “And you will hear somebody, before very long, say something outrageously racist about the people who’ve lived in Montana for 10,000 years.”
The governor delivered the program to sway the minds and hearts of Treasure State youngsters. “So, I decided, I can’t turn the heart of a 45-year-old redneck,” Schweitzer said.
Schweitzer has already been diagnosed with a prior case of diarrhea of the mouth, stating that Mitt Romney couldn’t win over Latino voters because his family “came from a polygamy commune in Mexico”.
Classy fella’. Good thing he’s not a white, racist redneck from Monta … er … nevermind.
