A good rule of thumb is if you’ve made it to thirty-five and your job still requires you to wear a name tag, you’ve made a serious vocational error.”  Dennis Miller

Five minutes of browsing through Greg Gianforte’s Facebook and Twitter pictures will leave you with a few thoughts: he can’t draw a crowd, genuinely smiling is difficult and what is with that name 9742772_G[1]tag?  You would think that a millionaire running for the most important job in the State of Montana, and someone who’s been at this for a while would have earned automatic recognition by now.  And if that’s what you thought, you would be wrong.  You can count on two things at every ‘event’: his forced smile and a name tag.


Just me and all this hay, but I know who I am.  I have this name tag to tell me.  We have people coming today, right?


Yes, I am Greg Gianforte.  My sign and snazzy name tag tell me so.


I like boats, cannons, and most of all, I like name tags.


Great crowd today!  As you can see by my name tag, I’m Greg Gianforte.


I’m Greg Gianforte and this is Greg Gianforte’s truck.  I smile better when I’m with my truck.


Why am I here and why did I wear my name tag?  I feel really uncomfortable….

Aaron, are they laughing at me and my name tag?  I’m not sure what they just said.  I still feel really uncomfortable….


Best day to wear my name tag ever!!!  Did I mention that I’m Greg Gianforte?


I know they can’t see me!  But dang it, the name tag makes me feel more confident!


Maybe I should get shirts to go with my name tag.  Donald has shirts.  Maybe I should pay people to show up too, hmmmmm….


That’s some beard, but not worthy of a forced smile.  If you say my name you can have my ice cream, it’s right here on my name tag.
