Top Posts for September 2012

  1. The most popular post of the month was about the person who may well be the worst member of the Montana Legislature. While thousands of visitors noticed his call for a civil war if President Obama is re-elected within hours of it being posted, the major Montana newspapers seem not to have noticed a call for sedition from a sitting Legislator and committee chair.
  2. On a related note, my criticism of the free pass Dennis Rehberg has received in the Montana media was second.
  3. Third was a look at the changes being implemented at the Independent Record, gently titled Just How Stupid Does Randy Rickman Think We Are?
  4. Fourth was a look at Sandy Welch’s floundering and spelling-challenged campaign for Superintendent of Public Instruction.
  5. Finally, readers enjoy new contributor Aaron Donaldson’s look at the “cancer” of Labor Day.

Thanks for continuing to read everyone!

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.

    • In-freaking-credible! I blame the press, but I also blame ALL the folks who have not fought back against this insanity. This is NOT my Montana, where racist wackjobs rule. As I been saying for twenty some years now, when are average decent people gonna fight back? I don’t get it.
