I wasn’t placed…
…oddly enough, in this Washington Post Best Political Blogs poll. But I did decide to take a walk on the wild side and scan some of the winners that I don’t normally read anyway (read: the more Republican slanted ones). Maybe I can find a blog or two to add to my daily reading (the best of which filters of course to you, dear reader).
Observation: Nowhere on Instapundit did I see anything about the huge cache of missing explosives in Iraq. Not even any attempt to spin the story in Bush’s favor. Which makes me wonder who they’re trying to kid.
At least The Corner On National Review Online confronted the issue, even though they’re trying to make it seem like it’s not a big deal. And they did point me to this column in the Washington Post that finds liberals contemplating the unthinkable (four more years), even though they did pick the two most inflamatory excerpts.
Observation: Little Green Footballs, meanwhile, obstensibly the “Best International” blog, is flatly racist and xenophobic.
Observation: OxBlog seems to have more than blind-loyalty to Republicans to offer as well, including a link to this endorsement of Kerry by The Nation. Which obviously isn’t much of a surprise, but their points are still well-taken.
“We believed that the invasion of Iraq was “the wrong war, in the wrong place, at the wrong time” (as [Kerry] now describes it) before the war was ever launched; he has come to that conclusion only recently, having voted to authorize the war. “
“if Bush is defeated, his entire presidency will acquire the aspect of an aberration, a mistake that has been corrected, and the American people will be able to say: We never accepted Bushism. We rejected the brutality, the propaganda, the misbegotten wars, the imperial arrogance. And we never, ever chose George W. Bush to be President of the United States.” (Emphasis theirs.–BV)
Of course, OxBlog did it to point and jeer, but their aid in bringing this to my attention is still appreciated.
Observation: The appeal of Wonkette continues to elude me. And (on the Democrat side of things), I still don’t enjoy Kos that much.
