Daily Kos Writes about Montana Speaker Vote

Daily Kos has a post about the fracas that chose Matthews as the Montana House Speaker. He casts it entirely in Red v. Blue terms.

One of the things that I love about this State is that we think for ourselves. Neither the GOP nor the Democrats have a monopoly on the truth. For that reason, we think and vote as make sense; we elected a smart-talking and thinking Democratic Governor with a Republican Lt. Governor. We voted to legalize medical marijuana, and overwhelmingly for a smart and capable conservative Republican congressman.

Montana did not turn "Blue" this November. We just reinforced our heritage as a people committed to moderation and common sense. I am proud to call myself, and my State, purple.
