This week's #FollowFriday blogs follow my more traditional sensibilities. I offer political opinion from a few different perspectives.
First up is The Political Garbage Chute, which dubs itself "a Politcalocalypse," a largely unprounceable portmanteau, the meaning of which is nevertheless clear. I was attracted to the site because of this entry on the possible death of the GOP, an opinion which in many ways mirrors my own.
Up next we go across the water for The Raccoon Arms (an alternate but still correct spelling, by the way, so please don't send nasty emails...). The site comes from Anna Raccoon (otherwise known as Susanne Cameron-Blackie), sometimes "aided and abetted" by others. There is a ton of interesting stuff here, but I have to admit that I was first drawn to the political poetry section. You MUST check out the lyrics for Whine On, You Crazy Diamond!
Finally this week is Plunderbund, founded by Eric Vessels and introduced to me by "crew member" Lauren Michelle Kinsey. It's "all politics" and "all Ohio." That's interesting right around now because, well... can you say "swing state?" (Actually, there's a fair bit of national politics as well.) The stuff here is carefully and thoughtfully written. Plus, how can you resist a title like "Money Boo Boo lands Ohio Republicans in deep Mitt?"
And, as always, please check out my latest post, here. This week, I apologized to all my readers....
