Five more top blogs

Michael Taube at the National Post's Full Comment identifies a top-ten of the left-wing blogosphere, which somehow I was made part of. There are three categories:
  1. The blog had to be partisan.
  2. The blog had to be active.
  3. The blogger had to have a blog of his/her own.
I'm not sure I pass the first two of these: I've been active lately, but I often go months without blogging. And this may strike some readers as self-delusion, but I've always thought of myself as rather non-partisan — I don't belong to any political party and do not always vote for the same party. But leave that where it is.

Taube is offering only ten top lefty-blogs, rather than the fifteen from the right (where his reading is wider). So I offer him five more that are worthy of inclusion.
  1. Dr. Dawg's Blawg — Dr. D. and Marie-Ève have some of the best writing in the Canadian internet, and they are consistently perspicacious, expressive, independent, and (a rarity among political bloggers) consistent. I read it everyday. Sometimes twice. So should you.
  2. A BCer in Toronto — Jeff is up-to-date, concise, and intelligent.
  3. Canadian Cynic — a guilty pleasure of many, including me. He's rarely fair and often foul, but loads of fun.
  4. Red Tory v. 3.0 — is what you'd get if you were to cross Dr. Dawg and Canadian Cynic: snarky like CC; smart like Dawg.
  5. Daveberta.ca — he had to deny stealing Ed Stelmach's personality some time back — how many bloggers can say that!

I wonder if the non-partisans among us will get a nod next time around?

Many thanks, Buckets, for your kind words.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Is there, perchance, a Senate seat in this somewhere? :)
