What's your favorite political blog?
Edited on Tue May-25-04 06:28 PM by Plaid Adder
I am going to be on a panel this weekend about blogs and journaling, and would like ot have some political blogs to recommend. I know about atrios, of course, and mahablog, and Talking Points Memo, and that's about it. Which blogs do you turn to for your daily antidote?

(And could you include a working URL so I can check it out? thanks)

Thanks in advance,

The Plaid Adder

12. impeachdubya.blogspot.com
Yeah, I'm biased, too---

The Impeach Dubya Blog


Let's see... Daily Kos is great..
I'm also a big fan of the writing of Tony Pierce. He spends lots of time talking about non-political stuff, but he's usually funny as hell, and he's pretty insightful.

I tried to join a liberal blog webring, but it didn't seem to be too well maintained. Am interested in finding more links, I'll put them on my blog if I like em enough.

14. The Daily Howler
Edited on Tue May-25-04 07:51 PM by Eric J in MN
www.dailyhowler.com

The Daily Howler exposes the bunk of rightwing reporters and pundits.


(By the way, I have a blog called "MoveLeft Media" at MOVELEFT.COM
http://moveleft.com
)
