NEW NOMINATION CATEGORY - "Best Political Post and Site"

One of the great things about August's nominations and voting was seeing how differently individuals handle political topics. We had a very political month with plenty of blog-fodder, between Iraq, Cindy Sheehan, and Katrina.

One of the "Best Serious Site" nominees pointed out that his treatment of the subject, although itself serious, was completely satirical. Many readers who are not politically based missed that point, due to the writer's sophisitcation and political expertise.

So, in order not to offend the writers who may be handling a political subject in either a serious or satirical fashion, and who may be misunderstood, OR to embarass nominators (such as myself) who might not know the difference, it is important to make sure that political blogging stands by itself.

Therefor, please nominate all political posts and sites in this category! Think of the subject matter and how well it was handled in the writing. You do not have to agree with the author's viewpoint...nominations should be based on the nominator's RESPECT for the writer's skillful writing on the subject matter!

Again, all posts nominated must be written in September.
All site nominated must have at least one post for September.

That's all of them!!!

Let's go find those great posts and sites, and present them for all to share!!!

Good luck, as always!

Kal - Kal's World: New Orleans: Disaster Planning, or Planning Disaster?
