Kevin Drum lists a number of conservative blogs he reads on a daily basis (we don’t make the cut, which means there is room to grow next year!), and I thought it would be interesting to list the liberal/progressive/Democratic blogs I read on a daily basis. These are in no particular order:
The Carpetbagger Report– While these are in no particular order, The Carpetbagger Report is a first stop for both me and Tim F.
The Daily Kos– If you want to know what the left is up to, the first place to check is the Daily Kos. And not just the front page stuff, but the recommended diaries as well. At over a half million hits a day, dKos does not need any advertising, but since this is what I read, I thought I would list it.
TalkLeft– If you are interested in liberal viewpoints on all things policy and all things crime, check out TalkLeft.
Mark Kleiman and friends– Almost as cranky as me, Mark Kleiman is always up to date on the Republican policy scandal du jour (from a liberal perspective).
Crooks and Liars– John Amato’s leftwing blog is one your one stop shop for video from the MSM.
The Daily Howler– Bob Somerby actually is crankier than me, and the most tenacious critic on the web.
Ezra Klein– Formerly of Pandagon, Ezra struck out on his own and is a worthwhile daily stop.
Sadly, No!– Complete and total smartasses, and this description won’t offend them.
The Whiskey Bar– The best writer of the Kos alums, and an acerbic and full-throttle liberal, Billmon is always worth your time.
The Bull Moose– My kind of Democrat.
Ain’t No Bad Dude– He doesn’t blog enough, but I check out Brian Linse every day regardless.
Feministe– Just to see what the ‘chicks’ are up to.
This isn’t a complete and total list, because I read far more than these (including Kevin Drum’s Washington Monthly), but these are some of my daily stops. I actually read more liberal/left blogs than conservative ones, because I am a member of the VRWC and get Karl Rove’s memos. I already know what the Republicans are thinking.
At any rate, there is my list. If Tim has a list of conservative blogs he checks out, I will put that up later.
