    Since Dennis Rehberg's Lawyer wife couldn't get any $$ from the Billings Fire Department, maybe she'll apply? Another Rehberg feeding at the Public trough.

    Wonder if Baucus will recommend his former concubine and now current 3rd wife for the job like he did a few years ago. Max knows a little secret........no matter what he does, Montana farmers will bankroll him to another 6yr term.
