Mike at Cold Fury has been blogging up a storm. Just start at the top and work your way down.

Blogger Awards

John Hawkins has his 2003 Warblogger Awards up, and once again, it was a clean sweep for Balloon Juice.





I did get five votes for Best Overall Blog, tying me for 14th place, so I would like to thank mom, dad, and my brother and sisters for those votes (*** Update *** This was just a joke- or supposed to be I really appreciate the fat that that many people voted for me, and I am actually quite surprised).

In other end of the year award news, Little Green Footballs is accepting nominations for the 2003 Fiskie:

Speaking of awards, its time to open the nominations process for the 2003 Robert Fisk Award for Idiotarian of the Year (Fiskie for short). Please post your nominations in the comments for this thread.

Note that the Idiotarian of the Year Award is devoted to honoring the useful idiots of the world; the creatures who are so naive, willfully blind, or astoundingly Ivory Tower brilliant that they aid the causes of dictators, terrorists, communists, and/or the evil Presbyterian Conspiracy. Please dont nominate outright murderers like Yasser Arafat or Osama bin Laden; these types of animals are not idiotarians so much as monsters, the type of monsters the idiotarians end up supporting and defending.

Also, Wizbangblog is hosting their version of the 2003 Weblog Awards. I am sure I can come up a loser there, too.
