Tester admits he can’t keep his glasses in place

Sen. Jon Tester sure has some slippery specs. 

The Montana Democrat’s glasses just didn’t want to stay on the bridge of his nose last week.

C-SPAN cameras captured Tester’s black-rimmed eyewear becoming a victim of gravity time and time again — moving down his schnoz until they appeared as if they were about to fall off.

When ITK inquired about how Tester’s eyesight aid just wouldn’t stay put, his campaign manager, Preston Elliott, saw an opportunity to turn the focus on Tester’s GOP rival for his Senate seat in 2012, Rep. Denny Rehberg: “Jon’s reading glasses may slip every now and then, but that’s pretty minor compared to Congressman Dennis Rehberg, whose entire career slipped after he sued Montana firefighters.”

Rehberg recently dropped a lawsuit that he initially filed last year against a Montana fire department, claiming it failed to protect his subdivision during a wildfire there.

Where else but Washington could talk of a pair of sliding glasses turn into chatter about political campaigns?
