Love and kisses to those coming from Wonkette, where the comment thread made me laugh very very hard, also too.
They're from the "Sarah Palin's Accomplishments" blog (Google it yourself) which apparently is not a parody. I can't call Poe's Law on it.
I've been forced by circumstances this weekend to throw my hat into the ring for "Best Individual Blogger" at the 2009 Weblog Awards. Several people used ALL CAPS posts to nominate another blogger who simply cannot be permitted to win. I will not link her blog but you will know her by her Build a Bolton Bear workshop creation:
Allow me to be very frank about this: I am happy to throw my support behind any progressive blogger who can beat Pammikins as Best Individual Blogger. There are considerably few of us doing this blogging thing daily as individual single-shingle blogs. Digby now runs a group blog. Driftglass won last year: that may not disqualify him but personally I would like to see a woman blogger win this time. If Lindsay Beyerstein wants to take over and do the heavy lifting, I'm happy to step aside.
And allow me to say I am not doing this out of personal animosity: Pammy is hard-working and articulate, and her politics is more entertaining than dangerous in my book. She's against peace, uses vicious hyperbole, and routinely and with entirely too many exclamation points, jumps to illogical assumptions about Arabs, Obama, healthcare, the economy, gender relations, plastic surgery, and shoes. And she supports Sarah Palin for President in 2012. As someone who has made a tremendous commitment to bloggers and blogging, I don't want that kind of blogger awarded the "best individual" representation of what I do.
I understand that the Weblog Awards are right wing sponsored, and are not worthy of a lot of our energy, especially with much, MUCH more important votes to fight for. But when we in the blog world have a say in what any given group nominates as "best" among those posting to the internet, we also can't be silent or aloof. If someone wishes to suggest another nominee for these awards, feel free to nominate them there and mention them in comments below.
