I haven’t done a post like this for a while. With all the new readers and the election past, it’s time to highlight the work of the online intellectuals (yes, we have them on the Right):
Patrick Ruffini–Patrick gives me hope for the conservative movement.
Jon Henke–Another guy from TheNextRight who I like.
Jim Hoft aka Gateway Pundit. I swear, there are really three of this guy walking around. He’s that prolific.
Ace of Spades. Funny and makes a point.
Rachel Lucas. I’m not going to say anything. I’m going to quote her post on Trolls and then you’ll see why I love her:
Here’s what happens: You start a blog. You write your admittedly biased opinions about, say, politics. You reach a certain level of traffic. People who disagree with your political opinions decide you’re worth their time and attention because after all, you asked for it when you put your thoughts on the internet, and you need to be taken down a notch, and most of all, they are miserable shits who get a kick out of being assholes to strangers on the internet.
It’s so inevitable that it should be a law of quantum physics by now.
The Anchoress. I always find myself wondering what she thinks on a subject.
Glenn Reynolds. He teaches. He writes. He scuba dives. He plays in a band. He blogs. He says he’s human. I don’t believe him.
Iowahawk. He has been rocking and rolling. I’d almost be okay with a Democrat as President if I could be guaranteed Iowahawk satire. There will be some small comfort for the next four years.
Jim Treacher is also thriving in the pain.
MaxedOutMama. She makes me miserable. Every time I read her, I think, please, just make her be a hard-core pessimist and wrong. But nope. She’s right. That’s why I read her.
Newsbusters. All of ’em. I get chronically pissed off when I read their site, but what can I say? They have job security these days.
John Hawkins. Yes, I co-blog with him at Right Wing News. He is doing great work, though, and it is worth noting.
