Best Political Blog

Nominate your choice for best blog coverage of politics in 2009.

Update: Nominations are closed for all categories. Finalist will be announced the last week of December and voting will begins Jan. 4, 2010.


READ ALL OF THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW BEFORE NOMINATING!!!

To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:

Wizbang
http://wizbangblog.com/
http://feeds.wizbangblog.com/Wizbang

Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services (Facebook, Twitter, Google, Typekey, WordPress, OpenID, Yahoo, AIM, etc.) your comment will not be published immediately. Unauthenticated comments are placed in a moderation queue. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours for your comment to be approved. Comments from authenticated users will be published immediately.

Every so often our spam fighting service flags an authenticated comment as spam. If you put more than 5 URL's in a comment it will set off the junk filter. If your comment doesn't immediately appear that's probably what happened. We review and "unjunk" these comments as we are approving unauthenticated comments. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Rules And FAQ's

  • You can nominate yourself, don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • Rather than add a "me too" (i.e. multiple) nomination for a site in a category, please use the "+" icon to indicate your preference for nominees. The "+" ratings are one extra piece of information the finalist selection panel can use to help generate the finalist slates in each category.
  • Given the two previous items, we reserve the right to remove excessive comments (i.e. nominations) for the same site.
  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Sunday, November 22, 2009, though we reserve the option to close nominations earlier or later.
  • Voting for selected finalists is scheduled to begin January 4, 2010. Finalists will be announced the week before voting begins.
  • Read The Nomination FAQ
  • Get Weblog Award logos to post on your site. Link to the nomination index or your favored category
  • Get technical help or ask questions at The Weblog Awards Discussion Forum on Facebook.
  • If you are linking to the contest consider using the nomination category archive, as it contains links to all of the nomination posts.

I am amazed every time I go to Atlas Shrugs, there is fresh news there! No other site, or media outlet breaks stories like Pamela Geller.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE DougRoss@Journal.
http://www.directorblue.blogspot.com

Talk about user-friendly! Doug has a unique visual style, presenting political news and analysis in visually compelling formats, such as hilarious "posters" or "bumper stickers," and photo-essays (his trademark) comprised of digitally manipulated photographs with informative captions. These photo-essays usually give valuable background on issues of the day--background that's often missing from the "mainstream media."

These are so informative, succinct and visually appealing, you will find yourself emailing them to all your friends on a regular basis!

In the sidebar on the site, there are links to some of the most popular of these photo-essays over the years. "Whom Despots Fear," a brief history of Western civilization, is a must-read, as is "What Really Happened," a brief history of the state of Israel. Very, very valuable depth and background that give you CONTEXT for understanding the day's news that might otherwise seem to make no sense.

Another good feature of the site is "Larwyn's Links," a daily listing of valuable links to good sources for the hottest news and commentary of the day.

Doug Ross is a site I check every day. I most highly recommend it.

Debbie Schlussel

www.debbieschlussel.com

Debbie is one of the few people with enough guts to tell the ugly truth we all need to know.

www.legalinsurrection.com is, without a doubt, the most straight foward and level headed conservative blog. NO knives,daggers or spears being thrown. Just plain level headed interpretation of what is happing to our government and coutry under the Obama and cohorts administration. We have diminished in our and the worlds eyes.
The "snake oil cure" salesmen will be surprised how ungullible the American public will be in the 2010 and 2012 elections. The "snake oil cure" representatives will be voted out by the voters that the "snake oil" didn't cure!!!!!!
GOODBYE to them!!!!!

The Crossed Pond

http://thecrossedpond.com

feed://http//thecrossedpond.com/feed/

I'd like to point out that it correctly picked how the primaries would turn out, down to the finishing order of all major candidates, a month before Iowa.

And it's the only blog I know of to correctly predict, upon the securing of each nomination, who each VP candidate would be. That's right. It guessed Sarah Palin and Joe Biden.

It's also been a great spot for the Republican infighting of 2009 and the struggle to define conservatism.

Wonkette-
A refreshing breath of snark in our vacuous political reality.

The Religion of Peace should be given a look, especially by the PC crowd.I am not a Wingtard but more toward the Marxist end of the spectrum. Wake up apologists of religious fundamentalist ideologies of all stripes and colors.
