Montana Blog Roundup 01 April 2012

It’s an April Fools’ Day edition of the Montana Blog Roundup, highlighting some of the mostmontanablogup interesting and provocative posts in the past week at Montana blogs.

D. Gregory Smith reminds us all that Representative Rehberg stopped even pretending to listen to Montana voters some time ago.

John Adams from the Great Falls Tribune posted this horrific story about a wolf tortured by a trapper that led to death threats against an anti-trapping group.

David Parker took a look at Senator Tester’s first ad in the Senate race. Nice to see an actual ad from one of the candidates.

MT Cowgirl wonders why Rick Hill is so negative about promoting business in Montana.

Ed Berry at PolyMontana constructed an amazing argument to conclude that Neil Livingstone is the best GOP candidate for governor. Yes, “Death Squad” Neil. In the comments, Tim Ravndal also added that the TEA Party movement in Montana is “a joke. Unfortunatley (sic) it is about as funny as a one eyed, one eared three legged dog.”

Lizard took a look at the absurdly draconian legal response to the scourge of marijuana.

Over here, our new poster Ellie took on the culture that worries about the football community while minimizing the impact of sexual assault, we (and the Wall Street Journal) criticized Denny Rehberg’s flawed budget politics, we mocked the corporate plundering that is destroying local journalism, and we questioned Diane Smith’s real commitment to economic values shared by Democrats.
