Koufax finalists are up
Go vote, friends. The Blend didn’t make it to the finals in any of the six categories it was up in, but many great blogs made the cut.
Shakespeare’s Sister, co-bloggrrrl on B3, is also up in the Group category; I’m voting for that slamming blog.
One of the Best New Blog entries is Unclaimed Territory – by Glenn Greenwald. He gets my thumbs up simply because he’s brilliant, persuasive and it shows in the meteoric rise and exposure of his work on the NSA scandal. And he has stiff competition in this category, including the excellent DKos spinoffs, Street Prophets and My Left Wing, and the always on top of breaking political news, Think Progress.
Glenn is also up in the Best Writing category, and Best single Post category for Bush’s Unchecked Executive Power v. the Founding Principles of the U.S..
Quite appropriately, he’s publishing his first book on that topic, How Would a Patriot Act? Defending American Values from a President Run Amok. Glenn says he’s 80% done, and it will be on Amazon pre-order soon — then I have to figure out how to get Glenn to autograph it for me, lol. 🙂
