The Blue Dog has posted his latest ranking of the top blogs in Virginia. Frankly, we like the old rankings better, but the blogosphere has certainly evolved significantly since then. Personally, I'd place our blog a little higher but I certainly have no beefs with any of the top four on the Blue Dog's list. Frankly, we never believed we were #1, Chad Dotson continues to set the standard in Commonwealth blogging and the rest of us are just racing to keep up.
One blog on this list I do have a problem with is the Republitarian. As far as I'm concerned, bloggers like Myron Rhodes give the rest of us a bad name. I often enjoy reading thoughtful, insightful commentary from non-Republican bloggers like Waldo Jaquith and Ben Tribbett, but Republitarian is neither of those things. His ill-informed, personal attacks and egomaniacal rantings add nothing to the political discourse. His online tabloid may provide for some entertainment, but like those magazines at the supermarket checkout counter, they offer nothing of substance. Certainly blogs like Shaun Kenney, South of the James and Bearing Drift are more deserving of placement on such a list.
