Listing Liberals

I don't think Forbes quite understands what Liberal means when they include little Tommy Friedman and Fred Hiatt high on the list of the 25 most influential Liberals, but it's still worth a click to see who they chose and view the photos. I don't think I've ever seen one of Kevin Drum for instance. He didn't look anything at all like I imagined.

Also interesting is how many bloggers made the list. All of them are the usual suspects among the A-listers and associated with big media in some way, but still, four years ago I doubt they would have featured any bloggers. So there's that.

There should be a list of non-influential liberals.

Well, maybe that way we could get a whole list of real liberals, instead of half of one.

There is power from these blogs but for the most part, it is for the bad. I don't know about this site, mine is quite limited in scope. Gets around 150 hits a day. Probably around 40 or 50 individual visitors. But posts get around. Bad people have found blogs to be a good place to start nasty and bogus stories.

Hey Truth. I'm just a B-lister here. But I've always thought it's the quality of the audience, not so much the numbers. Although 100,000 a day would be cool I guess.

You're right though, it doesn't take much for ugly blog memes to get started although that's more a trick of the wingers. They tend to amplify each other more than the lefties do. We're too independent.

Speak for yourself. Some of us are just lemmings.

Clayton! LOL. Lemming is not a word that comes to mind when I think of you.

So nice to see you here and I had no idea you had the other blog. Love it.

Adding you to the blogroll of course.

Well, I tried the lemming route but it seems that in this neck of the woods the only direction a lemming can go is to the right.

And there's cliffs over there.
