The Ole Blogroll.

In the interests of keeping the blogroll healthy, up-to-date, and meaningful, I think I am going to take off a couple or few blogs. Right now I am leaning toward taking off The Jawa Report. The somewhat new black background makes it difficult to read. And I am not a fan-- at all-- of "bedwetting conservatives" who would sell their own up the river because it might be temporarily expedient. I don't like that at all. And it's been happening far too much lately.

But I'd also like some suggestions for blogs I should add. I am thinking I want to add maybe 5 of them. Which must-read blogs don't I have on there? Feel free to nominate your own blog, even.


I went ahead and de-blogrolled The Jawa Report. I am just fed up with people piling on the clearly in-the-right good guys who need our support. I am sick of "conservatives" opposing Social Security reform. I am sick of "conservatives" rushing to pile on good people on our side who happen to be under fire from Democrats and the establishment media.

I was never The Jawa Report blogroll anyway, so I am not sure why it was ever on mine.

And, for the record, there are other prominent conservative blogs out there that also want DeLay permanently gone, for equally weak and short-sighted reasons. But I am willing to give some of them a pass, because they actually offer compelling content on a regular basis, unlike the weak, lame, and increasingly difficult-to-read The Jawa Report.

I vote for Bullwinkle!...

It appears we think much alike. Jawa appears a bit miffed at me for referring to him as the "bedwetting right"

Gail is special...!

Protein Wisdom is pretty damn good - and Jeff Goldstein has been on a tear lately.

Posted by: Am I A Pundit Now? at September 29, 2005 11:57 AM

A dangerous precedent is being set here. If the left doesn't like a conservative, all they need to do from now on is to keep flinging bullshit accusations of ethics violations (or whatever the accusation du jour happens to be at that time) their way, and soon the hand-wringers will start worrying about voters' perceptions.

If someone doesn't like DeLay, they're welcome to go after him, but linking a desire for a change in leadership to what may well turn out to be a politically motivated indictment is the worst kind of opportunism.

What happened to the standard liberal disdain for McCarthyism?

Posted by: John from WuzzaDem at September 29, 2005 01:07 PM

Thanks Zsa Zsa, Will did say "must-read" and I don't know if Random Numbers qualifies in that respect but I think we at least rate as "can be read". We do support DeLay and I know enough about Ronnie Earle to know anything that comes from him or his office is automatically dismissable as moonbat hype. Austin seems about as much a part of Texas as New York City does as long as he's District Attorney there.

You could add the site Blue Flypaper. It makes me laugh and does a nice job poking fun at the left.

Posted by: Dan Morgan at September 29, 2005 01:35 PM

Oh hells yeah - I highly suggest Protein Wisdom... and Jeff doesn't have a blogroll, so no discrimination there.

Maybe Neal Boortz's Nealz Nuze? Solid libertarian radio host...

Ace of Spades is good stuff, IMO, too.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at September 29, 2005 02:01 PM

The irony of 'McCarthyist' claims is that McCarthy was actually right per Soviet docs now available... but widely ignored.

But the claim of 'McCarthyism' is similar to the cry of "Godwin's Law" in that it is an attempt by those that fit the analogy to evade, or deflect, justified criticism.

So the (D)'s squeal McCarthyism to silence critics even as they practice McCarthyism by abusing their domination of the partisan MSMs to advantage.

So the avalanche of lies that have gone on for these 5 years... which all started with Bush-does-Cocaine during the election and goes through an amazing list of frauds too extensive to list here... the most recent attack being this version of the DeLay smears...

Leaves me wishing some (R)'s would fight back.

So DeLay(R) was sliding towards RINO like spending habits... OK... so we criticize him.

But when smeared by liars we need to fight back.

Make the (D)'s honest and we have a healthy two party system that keeps both sides of the aisle in check.

Allow the (D)'s excess and they continue to slide towards the extreme Left because the honest leadership gets shouted down by the extremes.

Fighting for DeLay will help both sides in the long run.

Thanks for the suggestions. Keep 'em coming.

Posted by: Will Franklin at September 29, 2005 03:21 PM

You don't include Dr. Sanity? For shame! Consistently solid analyses on behavior and politics at http://drsanity.blogspot.com/

You are correct in your support of DeLay. The charges smell of transparently dirty politics partisanship. Why give credence to any Democrat smear by abandoning a demonstrated leader?

Posted by: onlineanalyst at September 29, 2005 03:50 PM

I agree, DANEgerus - I meant to put quote marks around the word, since there really was (little or) no "McCarthyism" originating from HUAC.

That being said, the left loves to use the term *as they have defined it* incorrectly, much in the same way they use "censorship" when it doesn't apply, but in this instance, I think their definition of McCarthyism applies.

But, you know, ends, means, yada yada yada.

If you can get past the flagrant violations of the Truth In Advertising laws, I wholeheartedly endorse This Blog Is Full Of Crap, at www.isfullofcrap.com. Laurence Simon should be required reading by anyone (as long as they're not subject to the vapors).


Posted by: Jay Tea at September 29, 2005 06:30 PM

Er... "susceptible" to the vapors.


Posted by: Jay Tea at September 29, 2005 06:30 PM

I will add a bunch of these when I get back from my upcoming trip... other big site news to come, as well. October 10-ish.

Posted by: Will Franklin at September 29, 2005 09:52 PM

Hmmm... were you looking for really established Blogs like Little Green Footballs (who for some inexplicable reason aren't listed) or are you searching out smaller blogs who don't yet have a large audience to promote like the Anchoress? (http://theanchoressonline.com/)

Posted by: Mr. Michael at September 29, 2005 10:28 PM

A little of both. Smaller blogs that have something unique to offer are great...

Posted by: Will Franklin at September 29, 2005 10:31 PM

I agree completely with you about the bedwetters and recently blogged about it. Just makes me sick that we don't have enough people to fight against without our own side piling on.

I would definately vote for Dr. Sanity, a must read in my book.

Posting can be somewhat infrequent at times, but Cavalier's Guardian Watchblog has long been one of my personal favorites.

I just found another Blog I really like! The California Conservative is really nice!
