These really are exciting times in politics, aren't they? We have a black president, an openly lesbian senator and — apparently — our first leprechaun state congressperson…
State Rep. Jerry O'Neil, R-Columbia Falls [Montana], is spooked enough about the country's fiscal picture to request that his legislative pay come in the form of gold and silver coins…
"They might just go to the coin shop and get me gold and silver coins, or they might say I have to do it myself," he said. "I don't know."
I wish I knew what Rep. O'Neil thinks is going to happen with the economy. And, as of this time, he could not be captured for further comment.
