Montana Blog Round Up 18 March 2012


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

MT Cowgirl read and reviewed gubernatorial candidate Neil Livingstone’s chapter on procuring a sex worker in a foreign country or large American city.

4and20 blackbirds had a more national focus this week, offering up posts about the continued failure –in human and moral terms—of the war in Afghanistan and selling American citizenship to the wealthy.

David Parker, at Big Sky Political Analysis, floated the idea that cutting Congressional pay might actually do more harm than good.

D. Gregory Smith continued to put a critical light on the actions of a certain e-mailing Montana judge.

Over here, we took a look at the Republican candidates for Auditor, Secretary of State, and Superintendent of Public Instruction, got into a fight with a homophobic legislator, and pointed out that even Steve Daines knows Dennis Rehberg is wrong about Montana’s border with Canada.

If you appreciate our efforts to hold Montana Republicans accountable and the independent journalism here at The Montana Post, please consider supporting our work with a small pledge.
