Montana Blog Roundup 29 January 2012


Highlighting some of the most interesting and provocative posts in the past week at wordleMontana blogs.

D Gregory Smith discussed why Senator Tester seems to be so much harder working than Representative Rehberg.

Montanafesto authored a heartfelt farewell to Jeff Essman’s unlamented, unfunded campaign for governor.

Montana Cowgirl offered eight reasons Montana voters should follow the lead of the Democratic Party on economic issues and highlighted the Fanning-Baldwin strategy of appealing to “bigoted morons.”

Lizard argued for more focus on understanding the relationship between alcohol and homelessness.

PolyMontana laid out the laughable claim that Ken Miller is a liberal. No, really. Ken Miller. A liberal.

Over here, we wondered why teachers pay a higher tax rate than a capital vampire like Mitt Romney,  speculated that Tim Fox was more than ready to jump into the Montana Attorney General race, took a critical look at Melinda Gopher’s unusual strategy in the US House race, and wondered who Denny Rehberg wouldn’t take money from.

  • Wow! Seems like old Eddy Dingle Berry wants to STEAL all the federal land in Montana for Pastord Bulbdim! That's a novel idea. Well then, I got dibs on the Grand Canyon! I've always kinda wanted to own a canyon!

  • "D Gregory Smith discussed why Senator Tester seems to be so much harder working than Representative Rehberg."

    And why is that? Could it be he sees something in the internal pools?

    And why would he be visiting Dem strongholds like Fort Belnap, Rocky Boy, Box Elder, Missola, Helena, Butte, Lame Deer and Crow Agency?

    • I'm going to go with Senator Tester believes that a member of Congress should work for the large salary that comes with the job. Representative Rehberg seems to have other ideas.

  • Ingrid, I'm gonna help you and Dopey out. Please, I have asked them many times before, but no one on the nutjob side has EVER attempted an answer. Post just ONE original thought or statement that Dopey Reepburp has ever made. He's a walking talking talking point. In a real debate, Tester would destroy him. Dopey is NOT an intelligent guy. In fact, he's a moron. Now prove me wrong.

  • I am curious to find out what blog platform you’re working with? I’m having some small security issues with my latest website and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

  • Along with every little thing that seems to be developing throughout this specific subject matter, a significant percentage of viewpoints happen to be relatively stimulating. Nonetheless, I beg your pardon, but I can not subscribe to your whole suggestion, all be it exhilarating none the less. It seems to everybody that your opinions are not completely validated and in actuality you are generally yourself not even entirely convinced of the point. In any case I did appreciate examining it.
