Nominations - Best Liberal Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Liberal Blog.

A couple of notes:

  • You can nominate yourself; don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • In some cases the list of finalists may contain sites not publically nominated.
  • This contest is about fun - find some new blogs to read by following the links.
To nominate a blog leave the name of the blog; the main URL for the blog; and the URL for a RSS/Atom feed (if possible) in the comment section. For example (Note that Wizbang is not eligible for nomination in any category):
Wizbang
http://wizbangblog.com/
http://wizbangblog.com/index.xml


Unless you login via Typekey, your comments may be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment. Typekey authenticated comments will be published immediately. Update (Nov. 25): Nominations are closed. Keep checking The 2006 Weblog Awards homepage for news on finalist, linking, and voting. The voting will commence the first week of December, so keep spreading the word. In the mean time you can also join us in The Weblog Awards forum to discuss the nominees, or do some campaigning.

Neither of them b*tch about you being conservative.

My nom is for

Powers Point
http://www.powers-point.com/

it's definitly headed in the right direction, no pun intended

OOPS

http://right-thinking.com

is my nomination

The Democratic Daily: Drowning out the Noise Machine, with a liberal dose of news, national and local politics, progressive commentary and opinions, and commonsense conversation, because “Truth is the American bottom line.”

http://blog.thedemocraticdaily.com/

http://blog.thedemocraticdaily.com/?feed=rss2

The blog that single-handedly won the election for the Democrats by convincing Christians not to vote, and daring to expose the truth about Bush instead of pussy-footing around the REAL issue.

But why won't Nancy Pelosi return my calls?

Bush IS Hitler

The list wouldn't be complete without the great writers at Bring It On. ;-D (Of course, I may be a bit biased!)

The Huffington Post

The Rhetorical Situation!!!! Thoughtful liberalism, relatively new (August), and often extremely funny.

One of the biggest and the best

America Blog

Hullabaloo

http://digbysblog.blogspot.com/

Digby, tristero and poputonian bring you The Last Word on Everything, IMHO.

Great mix of liberal news and humor.

My vote goes to Conservatives for American Values. Liberal satire written by two geniuses posing as far far far right-wing conservatives. So funny, and the commenters are a riot.

um...

a k8, a cat, a mission
http://k8grrl.blogspot.com

I am addicted to this site!

The Scientific Activist
http://scienceblogs.com/scientificactivist/
http://scienceblogs.com/scientificactivist/index.xml

In its first year, it managed to single-handedly take down a Bush Administration appointee censoring science at NASA and was featured in The New York Times, Time Magazine, and Nature Magazine.

Shy? Me?

http://bgalrstate.blogspot.com
http://bgalrstate.blogspot.com/atom.xml

But I also love CFAV, Shakes, and a buncha others.

I nominate BlueGal:
http://bgalrstate.blogspot.com
She's left, she's right, and she rocks.
(And to think I knew her when!)

Daily Kos

Last Left Turn Before Hooterville -

hell, why not?

Nominate Jesus' General, if only to annoy him for not winning the Conservative award ;)

Thank you,

I love Blue Gal's blog. Some of the best political commentary going today!

IMAO.us (sccary evil monkey)

If we can nominate fake conservatives, how about a fake liberal?

http://blamebush.typepad.com/

Glenn Greenwald. Sheesh, this guy should have been at the top of the list:

http://glenngreenwald.blogspot.com

Another G***amned Liberal
http://lauralinger.blogspot.com/

I nominate Say Anything for the best liberal blog!

Daylight Atheism:
http://www.daylightatheism.org

I nomintate Something Requisitely Witty and Urbane.

http://srwu.net

I second the Hitchens Watch nomination, if only because the maxim "There's no such thing as bad publicity" holds true here. It is mostly supported by those trying hard to convince themselves they don't like the guy.

Do I nominate myself? Very well, I nominate myself.

In the Pink Texas

http://www.inthepinktexas.com/
http://www.inthepinktexas.com/wp-rss2.php

W. David Stephenson blogs on homeland security et al.
http://stephensonstrategies.com
http://feeds.feedburner.com/stephensonstrategies/Rbib

Homeland security news and views from a liberal perspective, with an emphasis on preserving civil liberties and empowering the general public through innovative use of technology.

Hanlon's Razor: http://www.hanlonsrazor.org

Remember when FOX was trying to wipe the Clinton interview from YouTube? That's where it started: http://www.hanlonsrazor.org/2006/09/26/fox-and-the-clinton-interview/
(the hundred-ish comments got eaten up in a server switch)

Pierre Tristam, columnist
www.pierretristam.com

Site is called Candide's Notebooks

Incredible depth in this site and none of this two-liner crap you see on other blogs that don't say anything new. He does most of the writing.

Best Liberal Blog

www.LostNation.TV

S.W. Anderson writes thoughtful, articulate, reasonable posts. Moderate to liberal viewpoints.

www.oh!pinion.com

Often long, thoughtful, well-researched comments on topical subjects from a moderately liberal point-of-view.

Donkey Path

http://donkeypath.blogspot.com/

Cold Flute

http://coldflute.blogspot.com/

A mixture of good political posts -- Cold Flute does a good job of keeping up with all the Democratic candidates for President, actual, prospective, and lurkers at the edges of possibility -- and occasional bits of poetry and other wisdom.

My arch conservative fellow blogger, The Median Sib, has nominated me in this category. Since my little blog has been nominated I'd like to suggest some sample posts.

My blog is not a purely political one, but I do often turn to my heartfelt political beliefs.
http://aloneonalimb.blogspot.com/2006/02/why-i-am-democrat.html

I also post my strong opinions on ethics, love,
http://aloneonalimb.blogspot.com/2005/12/true-love-links.html

the environment, as well as occasional nature photos
http://aloneonalimb.blogspot.com/2006/11/three-hours-away-from-dirty-politics.html

and poems and just plain nonsense

Please check me out. Thanks.
