Sadly, for the good of the nation and the citizens of Montana, Sen. John Walsh must resign from the Senate.

He must salvage his dignity and level the field for the election.

    There are 7 days left till the deadline for him to do so. I'm not holding my breath.

    A generic Dem with any intelligence would fare better than Walsh. Heck, throw in a random kid from a college debate team.

    I agree, it would appear that Walsh has a character flaw with the lack of integrity. He does need to resign and write a letter of apology to the people of Montana, the War College and the soldiers he commanded. We certainly don't need another politician with no integrity in Washington DC, there are plenty of those now from both parties.

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
