Our Most Popular Posts for 2015

The most read posts at Intelligent Discontent for the past year include looks the reactionary legislating of Art Wittich, a number of stories about the press’s coverage of politics here in Montana, Representative Zinke’s association with a general who has repeatedly called for a coup, and gun violence.

While some of these are likely to shuffle places by the end of the year, I hope you enjoy this stroll back through some of our most-read pieces this year.

Thanks for continuing to check out Intelligent Discontent. This year has been, by far, the year with our greatest readership, and we’re on track to nearly double the number of visits and visitors from 2013. Thanks to Pete for coming on board and no doubt leading to that growth.

Strangely, though our most read post this year—and the most read post we’ve ever had on the site in ten years—was a piece from 2014, about how Larry Bailey, one of Congressman Ryan Zinke’s former commanders believed he lacked the moral makeup to serve in Congress. Merry Christmas, Congressman Zinke!

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.
