We've been honored 

Right Wing News is out with its latest ranking of conservative blogs. It is subjective -- qualitative, as it were, rather than quantitative -- but we are honored nonetheless. Makes me wonder: In the Age of Obama have we become rightier and wingier than we used to be, or is it that we have shifted to some degree from policy to politics? In any case, most bloggers enjoy playing offense more than defense, which probably explains why the lefties had so much fun in the last few years and why they cannot let go of the Bush administration even now.

Wow--not just on the list but nearer the top than the bottom! Congrats. Not sure how Althouse makes the list--I like the blog, but based on the last election cycle, your listing of hers as a "Center to Right Blog" is pushing it, and she surely isn't a "conservative" blogger (actually, even yours is probably on the left side of most of these blogs).

Are you sure we've gotten rightier and wingier? It seems to me like we've just gotten better.

and grey-er, and bald-er :)

No, you've gotten rightier and wingier. Which is why lefties are rethinking gun control considering all the folks out shooting up liberal churches, abortion docs, and then, well, yesterday...

Now comes wingnuts urging Sheppard Smith's firing? Zounds. http://mediamatters.org/research/200906110030
Maybe the key is Tigerhawk's actually moderate compared to the deranged scumbags out there now.

Come on, Christopher, do you think any of the people on the right side masthead here would include Abdulhakim Muhammad (the person who shot up the Army recruiting station and killed William Long) in the far end of "left wing" or "nutroots" in an initial post? He's a whack job who happens to be a Muslim convert who also happens to be African-American. I don't broad-brush African-American or domestic mainstream Muslim bloggers with his bad acts. You really don't want someone posting on your blog that you are moderate compared to him; it's a silly comparison.

TigerHawk Teenager has it right.

Congrats; the recognition is well-deserved, though 15 is clearly light. This blog has gravitas (a word that fell from grace long ago.)

Chambers, as long as your 'cousins' keep going to the joint and coming out as white-hating Muslims, or sitting in the churches of the likes of Wright, who hates honkey, kikes, and pretty much anyone who isn't a white-hating black, we'll need the ability to defend outselves. Frankly, I live in a pretty far left town, and the altar boys from Durham could give two shits about whether a white person is left or right. They're just another honkey to commit a crime against. You mention that crackpot who shot up people yesterday, but haven't once mentioned the black who shot up the recruiting center, or the four blacks who were plotting to attack Jewish centers in the NY Metro. I wonder why that is?

Well done, well deserved.

Absolutely, TigerHawk!

Just like it always is, subjective and biased. Surprise!!!
