The results are in

Wulfgar has completed the inaugural Best of Montana polling. The winner is… All of us. 'Cause now we have lots of Montana linky goodness.

I had many thoughts on the results, but then again I bet everyone else does too so I won't bore you. My biggest eyebrow raiser: only 28 ballots submitted. I thought there would be more interested online Montanans than that. Should I be dissapointed with the voter turnout or is that just Montana for me?

Strictly my own thoughts, but I believe that Montanans have a sense of ... withdrawal; a feeling of humility that prevents them from putting forth opinion. I started to think that it was just a matter of most folks not knowing about the poll, but then it occured to me that none of Matt's contributing editors posted a vote, nor any of the readers at Big Sky Blog, or Ed Kemmick's place. That's when it became fairly clear that many Montana folk won't do jack sh*t unless directly asked to do so. That isn't a bad thing, just something to keep in mind for next year ...
