As a blogger, the first two sites I check in the morning are Lucianne
and Real Clear Politics
. Lucianne because the Must Reads are a quick look at what's getting buzz in the news world, and Real Clear Politics because it has the top columns of the day.
But the new site that's turning out to be a godsend is Conservative Grapevine
, by John Hawkins of Right Wing News
. John surfs 90 blogs a day, looking for the best in political commentary and analysis.
Today he's got some interesting links. Donald Luskin continues his kneecapping
of Paul Krugman. Joshua Micah Marshall
, one of the big blogs on the left, revealed to his readers three years ago the identity of Deep Throat: Pat Buchanan. And Jihad Watch proprietor Robert Spencer
is getting threats on a Muslim bulletin board.
Conservative Grapevine is like morning coffee
: It gets you going.
