| Birthers, white power militias, Paultards, NotMyBathroomers, Tea Partiers, Truthers-- it's hard to keep track of all the fringe groups that have popped up across the state. But what to do when the extreme ideas of some of these groups take the reigns of the politics of public officeholders?
As a multi-millionaire with a penchant for spending money like a drunken sailor in his personal and political life, Rehberg has always tried to find his pretend "conservativeness" by appealing to the outer limits of the political stratosphere. Since he can't claim to be a fiscal conservative, the fight is now on between Denny Rehberg and his primary opponent as to who is more of a right-wing nut job.
The fight started when a Paultard pretending to be Democrat (Dane Clark) was spotted distributing literature in support of Mark French, the Republican candidate for Congress challenging incumbent Rep. Denny Rehberg.
The Flathead Beacon picked up the story. What they didn't write, is that last year he ran as a Repub in the primary against Bruce Tutvedt
and has served as a contact on the Paultard forum DailyPaul.com. As to why he is out to dupe voters by running as Democrat, Clark is silent. But the fact that a Paultard was campaigning against Rehberg caused Rehberg to get defensive.
All of a sudden I look like the moderate and that never happens," Rehberg said. "I feel a little uncomfortable."
Rehberg got so nervous someone wouldn't think he was a nut-job that he sought the endorsement of Doctor Paul himself. Rehberg tweeted they are "working together."
Only a complete dimwit like Dennis Rehberg would think it was a good idea to pander to these extremes, and far as I am concerned, abject lunatics to try to cover for his reckless spending in Congress.
Even if they don't find out about his duplicity now, Rehberg will pay a price for it in the general election and when he runs for Governor in 2012--when he'll have to answer to the great center of the state.
