The Hardliner: Montana’s Worst Blog Gets Even Sadder


I don't mean to judge the good people at The Hardliner, as I understand that laying down astroturf, most likely at the Montana Republican headquarters, is pretty challenging, but you have to be one pathetic blog to block visitors who disagree with you.

The other day I posted a comment on the site, suggesting that the blog was perhaps something other than a grassroots movement. The next day, my comment was deleted. Today, my IP has been blocked from viewing the site.

Good luck getting your message out there, guys. Can I help invent the name of your next "commenter"?

I’ve never been to a debut before, and what I hear from my friends, it seems similar to a quinceanera in some ways. Im curious because i’ve never been to one before, and really unsure on what things I will be able to… Read more »


[P – The natives regarded top of the Shire as a prolongation of Lake Nyassa; for where what we called the river approaches Lake Shirwa, a little north from the mountains, i was told that that the hippopotami, “which are wonderful night travellers,” pass from ONE LAKE INTO THE OTHER.Several were in the channel, and our canoe-men were afraid to venture down among them, because, as they affirm, there is commonly an ill-natured one in a herd, that takes a malignant pleasure in upsetting canoes.The party on the bank in front had many muskets–and the ones from them, who had… Read more »

I’ve come across that nowadays, more and more people are attracted to video cameras and the discipline of picture taking.
