Another weekly look at the posts that I most appreciated and/or was interested in this week in the small world of Montana blogs.
- My favorite story of the week is jhwygirl’s roundup of the two rallies at the Capitol yesterday, one of which drew national attention, with the other seeming to receive much less notice. Perhaps this just demonstrates that I have watched far too much Arrested Development, but did anyone else think of Tobias Funke* when they saw Ravndal’s apparel choices?
- While I have largely relied on snark to address Greg Hinkle’s atlatl hunting bill, Wulfgar offers an important look at what’s missing: the requisite training to ensure that “modern day Neanderthals” don’t damage more than their reputations in their communities.
- MT Cowgirl broke down the Republican effort to do some damage control after a disastrous first half of the session. Now it appears they believe if they just say the word “jobs” often enough, the voting public will forget their frivolous, damaging, and extremist work in the first 45 days.
- Closer to home, the Polish Wolf’s post and the ensuing discussion about wolves is definitely worth a visit.
- Montana Headlines has reappeared to offer a conservative take on Montana news, but leads with a critique of the two leading candidates for the GOP Presidential nomination in 2012. It doesn’t look pretty for either Mittens or the Nitwit.
- Finally, the Western Word puts in a good word for the Democratic Party’s decision to support veterans and bring Tammy Duckworth to the Mansfield-Metcalf Dinner.
* I mean, I’m just saying.
