The next senator from the great state of Montana.
Nice try, dudes.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) said in an email blast Monday that they’ve been gearing up for Mr. Schweitzer to seek the seat of retiring Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, and found that the ex-governor is a “deeply flawed candidate."
How deeply flawed is Schweitzer as a candidate?
Montana 2008 gubernatorial results, Democrat Schweitzer 65.4, Republican Roy Brown 32.6, Libertarian Stan Jones 2.0
Yeah. That's flawed. Deeply flawed. What oh what will Democrats do if Schweitzer runs, what with his ability to win big?
"If anyone is looking for the 2014 cycle’s Todd Akin, we’ve found him, and his name is Brian Schweitzer," said NRSC spokesman Brad Dayspring. "The difference is that Schweitzer’s pattern of inappropriate and offensive gaffes are a result of narcissism, bullying and bluster. Jump in the pool, governor! Water’s warm!"
When your big insult is calling a candidate "Todd Akin"—one of the NRSC's own candidates in 2012—perhaps you should focus on getting your own house in order, rather than pretending that you actually want Schweitzer in the race.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
