Montana Senator Jon Tester wrote an open letter this week to the man challenging his re-election, Congressman Denny Rehberg, encouraging a truce much like the one brokered in the Massachusetts Senate race between Elizabeth Warren and incumbent Scott Brown. But will shady third-party groups funded by big business and orchestrated by Karl Rove play ball?

“Let’s reject and work to keep all third-party radio ads about you and me out of Montana,” wrote Tester. “Let’s reject efforts by outside groups to undermine Montana’s tradition of elections decided by people — not corporations.”

    Karl Rove, abiding by a gentleman’s agreement? Fat chance.

    I’m reminded of the fable about the scorpion and the frog.

    The scorpion wants to get across a stream and asks the frog for a ride. The frog says, “but you’ll sting me.” The scorpion says, “Then we’d both drown.”

    Satisfied by the response, the frog complies.

    Halfway across, the scorpion stings the frog and they find themselves quickly sinking.

    “But why?,” the frog asks?

    “It’s my nature,” is the reply.

    Rehberg, he who has sued the Billings fire department for not putting out a grass fire he may have started with fireworks himself, is now going on about the National debt.

    The debt has increased immensely since Denny and Dubya took office in 2000, but in 2006 Denny assured us that the debt was customary and usual, nothing for us to be concerned with.

    Let’s face it I’m in love with Elizabeth Warren.
