First, a song …
(to the tune of “Let it snow, let it snow.”)
The Republicans are coprophageous;
let’s all hope it’s not contagious;
’cause if thats the extent of it,
We’ll eat more shit, eat more shit, eat more shit.

Welcome to a tradition started by the much missed Jon Swift/Al Weisel. He left behind some excellent satire, but was also a nice guy and a strong supporter of small blogs….
I am included therein, but that’s not the reason to read it. The range of leftie bloggers is as wide as it is ofttimes wise.
If you don’t read these blogs on a regular basis, this is your chance to catch up, and maybe even find something that you always wanted to see, but hadn’t known was already out there.
h/t to Batocchio, and to all the other bloggers, often unsung, almost always unrecompensed, who slog on, day in and day out, to bring some kind of intelligent and rational analysis to the endless maelstrom of the collective Id that passes for our News Cycle.
You rock, guys.
