Best Liberal Blog

| | Comments (64)

Nominate your choice for Best Liberal 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.

SW Anderson at Oh!Pinion is thoughtful, incisive, accurate, prolific, respectful of opposing views, dogged in defending his own, in short an excellent and entertaining political commentator.

Sue said: Can't go a day without it. Best liberal blog there is. Good info, good links, good T-shirts!!!

Tom Buckner said:, seconded. Bartcop has been at it longer than 'blogs' existed, and he cuts right to the meat of an argument in a no-BS way. Still the only one really talking about how oil isn't getting metered in Iraq, meaning Bush friends could be stealing a more than a hundred million a day!

Comrade Rutherford said:

I heartily recommend Welcome to Pottersville. He writes exactly what I would, if I had time to write a blog:

Pottersville is the name of the town in 'It's A Wonderful Life', as shown to Jimmy Stewart by his guardian angel. Originally named 'Bedford Falls', the alernative version is taken over by the GOP leadership and transformed by Free Market Caplitalism into a sinkhole of squalor and poverty.

Ron Goldman said: is the reason Al Gore invented the Internets. It is the all-around smartest, funniest, most perceptive, most entertaining blog going -- and I read ALL the blogs. Author Profile Page said:

Been around long before any of the rest of y'all...But posting funnier stuff than the rest of y'all...And he's probably older than the rest of y'all.

this blog is brilliantly and passionately as well as truthfully written in the vein of our founding father's. "jurrasiac pork" uses the 21st century blog just as paine used pamphleteering.

he is a true patriot and one of my heros and "must reads."

he rocks my liberal heart and evokes my eternal hopefulness to take flight.

Commentary by a longtime progressive author seeking to counterbalance what he sees as an unfair portrayal of Israel by a small yet influential segment of the left.

I am so sorry. I have been very careless and misspelled the link a second time. Please do not judge this excellent blog by its careless nominator!

The Anonymous Liberal can be counted on for clear, factual, well-reasoned and thought-provoking posts on timely, important matters of law, politics and public policy. Doesn't resort to snark and foul language, yet still gets the job done.

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!

We're on the lookout for your quotes about The 2007 Weblog Awards.
