I laughed

Others may be posting more meaningful comments about Montana politics, but I thought this letter in the Chronicle today was great.

Much-maligned legislator’s wife a good friend

People forget: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything.” My friend [Kim Sinrud] has been getting some grief because what she said didn’t come out how she meant. Here are some things you should know about her.

She’s got more humility in one finger than most people have in their whole body; first in line to help and last to seek praise — she deflects it or gives it to God. She never faults anyone for trying. Quick with a kind word, she doesn’t gossip. She looks for the best in everything and everyone. If I came over wearing a hat that looked like a lamp shade, she’d say, “That’s creative!” Later she’d take me hat shopping (and lovingly steer me away from anything resembling lamp shades).

What exactly Kim Sinrud did can be found here.

It’s sort of strange to see this printed three weeks after Sinrud apologized (and offered no explanation of what she actually did mean, even though she claims she chose her words poorly).

I’m sure the letter writer means well, but Sinrud’s comments were monumentally self-absorbed. Rambling about lampshades doesn’t really change that. Surely the Chronicle has better letters to print.

    So her humility is all trapped in her little finger?

    I would assume that it would be in her non-dominant hand, cause her writing hand isn’t very humble. In fact, it seems slightly self-aggrandizing to me.

    But hey, what do I know? I’ve never met Kim Sinrud, so I’ll have to just let the evidence speak for itself.

    As for not saying anything mean, maybe Kim should take that advice in the future, and not bitch about the mean ol’ Governor sort of taking away her holidays.
