Watch Out for Blow Dart Wielding Prisoners; The Montana GOP Reaches a New Low

Shares


Just when I thought this collection of bigots, idiots, and conspiracy theorists couldn’t embarrass the state any more than they already have, Representative Janna Taylor came along to say something so stupid and offensive that she made Tim Ravndal seem like a rational human being.

Why do we need the death penalty? To stop HIV-positive prisoners from killing guards with blow darts.

How can you have a rational debate with someone like that? You can’t.

How can discourse happen in the absence of reason? It can’t.

He spends far too many hours of his life working at school and on his small business, Big Sky Debate. In the past few years, travel has become a priority, whether it's a road trip to some little town in Montana or a museum of culture in Ísafjörður, Iceland.

When school is in session, my posts will often be auto-scheduled to appear later in the day.
