Best Conservative Blog

| | Comments (182)

Nominate your choice for Best Conservative Blog.

Update (Oct. 17): Over the next 24 hours we will be closing nominations for most categories. This is a manual process so it takes a while to complete. As long as a category allows you to enter a comment (which is how you submit a nomination) nominations for that category are still open. When the option to leave a comment is not available you'll know nominations for that category are closed. The "+" rating of nominees will remain open throughout the awards.

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:


Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services your comments will be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment, but all anonymous comments will eventually be posted. Only authenticated comments will be published immediately.

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" nomination for a site you're encouraged to 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.
  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Wednesday, October 17, 2007.
  • Read The Nomination FAQ
  • Get technical help or ask questions at The Weblog Awards Forum
  • If you are linking to the contest consider using the nomination category archive, as it contains links to all of the nomination posts.

Nominating a new aggregate conservative blog in Minnesota: True North
RSS Feed:

True North seeks to focus, not on political parties or candidates or even issues, but rather first principles. We have over 30 contributors — including Captain Ed from Captain's Quarters, Scott Johnson from Powerline, Mitch Berg from Shot in the Dark, Michael Brodkorb from MN Democrats Exposed, and a host of conservatives across Minnesota. "Talent on loan from the Viking gods!"

We're enlisting counter-protesters in our Protest Watch section to answer leftists at their rallies and at the 2008 RNC Convention. Our first event in September documented protesters selling socialism under thinly-veiled anti-war signage.

For a humor break, enjoy our "Fresh Fisk" section where liberal letters to the editor or liberal editors' writings are laid bare, skinned and gutted.

We will be covering elections statewide, down to the cities at our True North Election Primer section. Upcoming events statewide are also listed here.

Eternity Road

I'd like to nominate the above blog because it is one of the most insightful and intelligent blogs on the web. Every post is well thought out, and well written. I see so many wonderful blogs on my daily blogroll in the other nominations, but if I could only visit one, it would be this one.

A most refreshing, young, dedicated GOP voice drives the blogging at I think he ran for NY State Senate seat. The lad should've won!

Please nominate my blog.


Baghuan said:

I think Flip Pidot is the best right leaning blogger around.

Matt said:

I think every major newspaper was checking out Flip 's coverage (Suitably Flip) of the Hsu scandal. Definitely worth a nod.

Bruce said:

Nominating Curmudgeons Corner,

Conservative, outspoken, sometimes profanely so:)

Ed Morrissey's Captain's Quarters:

Esma Babacan said:

The Van Der Galiën Gazette is one of the best blogs that is to be nominated. one can find good book reviews, interviews and political posts and analysis.

Esma Babacan said:

W Dean said:
Insightful, witty and poignantly flip. Should win an award for his investigative work, particularly the Norman Hsu scandal, where he has scooped the prosecutors as well as the tree-killing media. Author Profile Page said:

Define "conservative". If you mean, old-line, fiscally, constitutionally, and intellectually conservative, the best by far is John Cole's Balloon juice:

However, if you want radically authoritarian, theocratically inclined and emotionally hysterical "conservatives" you must look elsewhere.

jnfr said:
capelza said:

John Cole at Balloon Juice. He is conservative. Tha his commentors often aren't is high praise. People of all political leanings go to John becuase he is sane and indenpendent. Liberals go to him because they are comforted to know that their are sane conservatives left.

Tim F said:

Andrew Sullivan annoys me half the time, but the other half he makes more sense than most conservatives on the internet. A Sullivan win would send a clear message that traditional conservatives want their movement back.

The Daily Dish

For reasons similar to the nomination of Balloon Juice, Andrew Sullivan's The Daily Dish deserves nomination.

IslamoLlama said:

The last great conservative blog left out there.

Rex said:

At least John Cole actually meets the definition of conservative.

Guav DNA Author Profile Page said:
Mr Furious Author Profile Page said:

I'll second (third) the Balloon Juice, and suggest Andrew Sullivan as well.

James Parker said:

I'll see your John Cole and Andrew Sullivan nominations and raise you with one for Gregory Djerjian at The Belgravia Dispatch:

It's nice to read conservatives who have remained conservative through this latest episode of Republican rule.

Mike P. said:

Another thankful American vote for John Cole's sanity. He and Sullivan are members of a dwindling club, unfortunately. Actual thinking conservatives.

theabomunist Author Profile Page said:

Balloon Juice for me, thanks.

JoeJoeJoe said:

Another vote for Balloon Juice

Balloon Juice

Jane2 said:

I nominate Balloon Juice because it's truly conservative, not some fringe hack job.

Tax Analyst said:

Yeah, Balloon Juice. John Cole's a fair-minded straight-shooter and had developed a keen eye for foolish BS and deserves recognition for actually APPLYING his conservative principles, not to mention having a very open policy toward allowing differing opinions to be expressed. It puts a lot of the others to shame in that regard. Sullivan's and his "Daily Dish" are usually pretty close to the mark these days in most areas and he's also an interesting read.

Note: I have no idea what to put in the "Score" area...maybe I missed something in the instructions, so I'll just leave it be.

Glenn said:

Balloon Juice. John gives fair commentary for all sides, a rare bird indeed.

Balloon Juice is the best true Conservative blog.

The one and only worth reading:

I vote for Murphy Klasing's Conservative Blog

It combines satire, current events and politics with a definite conservative slant. I am nominating myself--not out of arrogance (I'm not Al Gore) but because in our Free Enterprise system you've gotta make your own way. Ok, maybe I'm just arrogant. :)

I nominate Murphy Klasing's Conservative Blog at

It attempts to combine politics, current events (a little sports) with satire. I nominate myself-not out of arrogance (I'm not Al Gore) but because in our Free Enterprise system you gotta make your own way. (Okay that is silly-I'm just arrogant).

I'd like to nominate Pauls Site:

His site combines true consivertism and dosen't leave out the social aspect.

Chris said:

Political commentary from a midwestern right wing conservative guy who happens to be Jewish. The author is a former Corrections Officer with the Michigan Dept of Corrections and worked for the Transportation Security Admin. Hard hitting commentary aimed at Liberals and Islamofacism.

Nice to see the John Cole/Balloon Juice liberals and Andrew liberals spammed the thread. Very Ron Paulish.

Saish said:

Keep doing what you are doing. Inspiration and education are the only words I can use.

With little embarassment, I also nominate my blog: The Douchebag Report -- Empowering the fight against insanity.


First of all, you gotta love the name. Next, you gotta love the cause -- exposing liars, thieves, and media / political elites that believe in the "do as I say, not as I do" way of life. is THE blog

The owner, Charles, and the LGF lizards community as a whole deserve to win this award hands down !

Great personalities viewing the world through conservative eyes. Great appreciation of each other. Relaxed "sit on the porch and talk a spell" attitude. Feels like family that actually agrees most of the time.

Brad said:

The Crossed Pond

Barely six months old, this political blog that spans both sides of the Atlantic has already been rated as one of the Top 100 Right-of-Centre blogs in England, and has been featured in the Washington Post, Time, The Atlantic, The London Times, National Review, and others. A heavy emphasis on politics and specifically about the state of conservatism today, but it mixes it up more than you'd think.

Chris said:

The Moxaragon Group is a great blog. It's written by aliens that comment on the political scene. Their tag line is "Keep watching the skies, because we're watching you"

Funny as heck and a really well written conservative blog.

Carol said:

I nominate Beth at Blue Star Chronicles for this category.

Frank Norris said:

The best source of insightful political commentary you will find. Stands out among all the blogs for its depth, intelligence, and wit!

I just found out that you can embed polls from the weblog awards on a homepage. Cool. Supporting us won’t get you a damn tote bag, but you will get regular beer blogging again. And we both know that you can’t get that on NPR." - Balloon Juice

"So I haven't been actively promoting my Weblog Award nomination. Sure, I mentioned it, and I put up a little button, but I haven't told you to vote, have I? I haven't told you to vote once every twenty-four hours, have I? I haven't told you to rise up, my minions, and smite the Internet with your collective force, have I? Have I? Well, now I have." - Looky, Daddy!
