Montana Senator Steve Daines Will Use Private Jet To Make Kavanagh Vote If Needed.

Source: Associated Press

HELENA U.S. Sen. Steve Daines says he'll return to Washington D.C. by private jet on his daughter's wedding day if Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court comes down to the Montana Republican's vote.

Daines said in a statement to The Associated Press Friday that his good friend and colleague, U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte, "has come to save the day" by offering him use of his private jet.

like all his Groper Party buddies and he's billing it out to us somehow.

6. Yup.

And for your wedding, dear daughter, I got you a SCOTUS justice that will declare war on your civil rights as a woman. But don't worry your pretty little head, daddy will take care of everything.

or give him plenty of stuff to imbibe on so that he completely forgets to vote for Kavanaugh, OR have one hell of a headache that will only go away if he votes "NO".

7. Irony broken. Jets away from wedding to vote for a sexual predator nominated by a sexual predator.

Have I got that right?

Wonder what he told his daughter about this all being a vast left wing conspiracy attack on innocent young men and victims are not to be believed?

Did his lovely daughter agree?

Whatever children she has, I hope they bear the shame that today's Republicans are incapable of.

10. I get at least 4 people a week ringing my doorbell. I have a written note that I hold in front of

my face when I see it is political peeps. I wrote it because I tend to go off when they flip my bitch switch and I want the most important part said before I open my yap. I love watching them back up off my doorstep once I open it. Yesterday it was Gianforte people.

My note says: Yes, I am registered. Yes, I plan to vote. -REPUBLICANS- I have NOTHING to say to you. If you are a down ballot person you can thank the GOP for NO R votes from ME. You sold your soul and mine. The White House is CORRUPT and the GOP gives its blessings.

The dumb ass yesterday says "I take it you are a Democrat?" That was the bitch switch flip. I just let er rip. Russia, Kavanaugh, McConnel, Russia, Hatch, Ryan, Russia, Trump, kids in camps, Russia, liars, cheaters and theives and I hope they all get their corrupt asses thrown in prison. I am still yapping as the man slowly backs away from the Psyco Bitch from hell.

13. Go GemDigger!

For some reason, the Groper Party doesn't darken my door...I only get Dems which is a relief, however, I'm kinda envious that you get the opportunity to let the pukes have it. I will get a stray Jehovah's Witness from time to time but that's not nearly as fun.

and indefinitely delay Daine's flight so much that he'll just drive a damn Edsel to get there.

19. When's the wedding...at 8am?? Two hour flight from where he's at plus two hour time zone change...

He'd have to leave by 1:00 pm or earlier. Eh...better to INSTALL a DRUNK abuser to the SC than hang around for a daughters wedding. Maybe Trump can walk her down the isle and try and get some while he's there. Melania is wayyyyy out of town.

Just sayin'.

DUDE..... what's more important, your daughter's wedding or voting for an alcoholic rapist? Seriously, get your priorities straight.

Gianforte is make a contribution in kind, worth a lot of money, to ensure a vote.
