Looking at those results reconfirms why I don't live in Miles City anymore. Whole lot of MAGA morons watching Fox NewsNewsmax living there these days.

I feel sorry for the normal people who still live there. Keep up the good fight! Although you're only 40% of the Custer County electorate, I'd suspect a lot of those voters are dying of old age, or, in the case of Jerry Erlenbusch, potentially stepping on a fallen rake which would slap him in the head and break his fragile eggshell mind.

Ha ha, Gunnar. I hate to say it, but I'm losing faith in the entire state. And the Dakotas? I thank my lucky stars every single day...

That Constitutional Amendment No. 48 was sponsored by State Senator Kenneth Bogner of Miles City. It seems to have passed very easily.

A long time ago, I ate lunch nearly every day for five years with Steve Muggli. Steve is not what I would call "liberal". He is a pretty conservative guy, mainstream eastern Montana, in my estimation. Why he can't get any traction is puzzling.


I am also highly disappointed in voter turn out. MT was just over half, My state was less than half. The news media rages on about "what are the voters saying" and try to discern the meaning of the tea leaves left in the aftermath. When half of you can't get off your ass to show up, I think it says democracy is very broken. I guess its hard for the media to sell advertising if they talk about the real problem.

At least Linda Corbett won. Small victory but I'll take it. I knew otherwise we were doomed.
