Let's Rock and Blogroll: Elections Edition

Ok, as many at home and abroad may already know its an election year in the US and even though the mainstream media (MSM) is operating under the rules of osmosis, I thought I'd present some of my favorite Political blogs for checking (and rechecking every 3 mins!) political news in the States and abroad:

  • Huffington Post - Created by Arianna Huffington, its probably one of the most powerful political blogs on the net.
  • Talking Points Memo by Josh Marshal - Excellent commentary on the days campaign events
  • Comment is Free - Good in general, for international current affairs, but they also have a US Elections 2008 section thats pretty sweet
  • My Direct Democracy - This is a new discovery for me through the current campaign season, I like their focus on State politics as well.
  • AlterNet - Pretty liberal news site/online community that always teaches me something new.
  • Raw Story - Like its name, is headlines that matter, no frills.
  • Ezra Klein - 23 year old Ezra Klein at The American Prospect has amassed quite a bit of knowledge in his brain and eloquently shares it.


Award for Best International Comments Section goes to:

  • The Times - The tried and true Times newspaper's online edition has such an interesting mix of international commenters on its articles as evidenced here.
