MT Cowgirl Steps in it

I try not to snipe at other sites.  It’s boring to most readers and seems petty.  Today, I can’t resist.

Secret Squirrel over at the Montana Cowgirl Blog disparages Bernie Sanders’ supporters, likening the Senator to Ralph Nader in the 2008 presidential election.

What was the Squirrel thinking?  Most folks who follow political blogs are activists.  And most activists in the Democratic Party are Bernie supporters.  There are even some out there who think Sanders is too moderate, at least on foreign policy issues.  So a post promoting Hillary Clinton is bound to draw some ire.  It did.  Right now, it looks like about 95 percent of the comments are pro-Bernie.

Check it out.  On the Montana Cowgirl plus side, though, I’ll bet the post has generated a lot of traffic.

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.
