Extra attention to a few Centrist blogs.
Donald Sensing at Winds of Change: House votes to increase foreign oil dependency, punish American poor. An interesting issue / post to debate?
My friend Libby Spencer at The Impolitic links to an interesting article at the Huffington Post in which Bob Burnett describes U.S. President Bush’s kind of conservatism: materialistic conservatism. In another post at her blog I read that she likes Hagel.
Dave Schuler at The Glittering Eye… on fat dogs. I have a black labrador retriever. Labs love to eat. It’s what they like most and do best. As such, a lot of labradors are overweight. Like Dave I, however, know what he needs, know what his ‘perfect’ weight is and adjust his diet to it. Also: exercise
John Cole at Balloon Juice refuses to believe that a poll conducted by Fox News is accurate. The results:
Do you personally want the Iraq plan President Bush announced last week to succeed?
Overall: 63% Yes 22% No 15% Donâ€™t Know
Democrats: 51% Yes 34% No 15% Donâ€™t Know
Republicans: 79% Yes 11% No 10% Donâ€™t Know
Independents 63% Yes 19% No 17% Donâ€™t Know
I just saw that Libby (from The Impolitic) has been asked by TMV co-assistant editor Michael J. Stickings to become a co-blogger at Michael’s own blog, The Reaction. Libby – of course – gladly accepted the invitation.
Congrats to Libby: you deserve it and I’m sure that you’ll be a great addition to The Reaction, which already is one of my favorite blogs (even though I do not always agree with the boys and gals there) and will be even more so now.
