One of the more interesting storylines to this year's campaigns, especailly nationally, is the effect that fiercely partisan blogs are having on the election. In fact, many have suggested that the blogosphere has become a left-leaning counterweight to the G.O.P. bastion of talk radio.
In Michigan this year, a whole array of blogs have either sprung up or had their site traffic explode as more and more folks turn to the web for analysis and talking points. So where to go, if you're feeling the need for blogs? Well, here are a few of my favorites:
On the Left:
Michigan Liberal - Matt Ferguson started the granddaddy of Michigan political blogs after his narrow defeat in the 8th District Democratic Primary. Think DailyKos, but local.
The Disembodied Head of Dick DeVos - No explanation needed.
Liberal, Loud and Proud - One of the newest, one of the best.
On the Right:
That's Saul Folks! - A blog by G.O.P. chair Saul Anuzis. Unlike most "official" blogs, it's well updated and contains several great links.
The Lunchbucket Conservative - Scary-fast, no holds barred commentary and analysis on almost everything campaign-related.
Republican Michigander - Many of this site's users are Democrats, yet RM more than holds his own.
