    GREAT FALLS, Montana (AP) -- Montana's Libertarian candidate for Senate has turned blue from drinking a silver solution that he believed would protect him from disease.

    Stan Jones,a 63-year-old business consultant and part-time college instructor, said he started taking colloidal silver in 1999 for fear that Y2K disruptions might lead to a shortage of antibiotics.

    He made his own concoction by electrically charging a couple of silver wires in a glass of water.

    His skin began turning blue-gray a year ago.

    "People ask me if it's permanent and if I'm dead," he said. "I tell them I'm practicing for Halloween."

    He does not take the supplement any longer, but the skin condition, called argyria, is permanent. The condition is generally not serious.

    Colloidal silver dietary supplements are marketed widely as an anti-bacterial agent or immune-system booster, but some consider it quackery.

    Jones is one of three candidates seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Max Baucus in November. The others are Republican state Sen. Mike Taylor and Green Party candidate Bob Kelleher.
    I'm thinking that someone who makes personal decisions this poor is not someone I want involved in federal legislation. But maybe that's just me. We'll see what the goodfolk of Montana have to say.

    Have a smurfy day!

    He'll be another Strom Thurmond, nobody can tell if he's dead or alive.

    A previous PM of ours, John Major, was always lampooned as being grey and boring. Turns out he had a 4 year affair with another politician!

    I saw that, Don! And they were BOTH married to other people at the time, weren't they?

    I read a quote from someone who said that Major told a former lover, just as he was breaking up with her, "I've met someone just like you, and I'm going to marry her." OUCH!

    Of course, he may've been slightly stodgy, but at least he wasn't, you know, actually gray. :stone

    I wouldn't have recognized him!
