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 (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 your comment will not be published immediately.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 put more than 10 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.

I would like to nominate Mr Furious.

I am nominating From the Left.

The owner, Christopher di Spirito, is a forceful, gay, liberal blogger, who always keeps us informed and amused.

He's fearless and doesn't suffer fools, the rightwing, or the religious right.

He and his blog played a decisive role in the election of Barack Obama.

He's definitely a powerful force in the blogosphere.

I'm going to nominate myself for best liberal blog, not because I think I'm the best, but because I offer a unique blend of politics and commentary.

Foreign Policy Watch

How can a beaten-down, demoralized Liberal party reignite the glorious red fire and recharge for the long journey back to forming government? For nomination, I present a couple of blogs from the other side.

Blue Like You

Driftglass: A must read for liberal reality. He never holds back saying what we all see but refuse to admit.

Glenn Greenwald: Of course he represents the liberal edge and is able to point out the propaganda...legality. He's tireless and courageous refusing to backdown or backoff the media darlings or the political leaders of the money party beltway insiders. His efforts need to be recognized by all liberals.

Madam Miaow says ...

Fearless prodding at the hypocrisies of the political establishment, aiming both at the right and the faux-left. And funny too. Brilliant coverage of the subtexts behind the media hysteria over the Chinese Olympics.
