Slugger shortlisted for (non) Lib Dem blog award….

Here’s one nomination I never expected Slugger to attract, but it looks like we’ve been shortlisted for Lib Dem Voice’s Non Lib Dem blog of the year award… The winner is chosen by public vote… and as I’m a few days late with this, I’m sure we’ll be way behind the field… Do what you can (you know what I mean!!) to keep us in the fight… As it happens, I’ll be there for the award ceremony on Sunday night to hook up with occasional Slugger contributor Stephen Glenn and a few other political blogging heads… Should be good crack…

    Stuck a vote in.

    5.33 a.m., the joys of fatherhood gettin to ye?

    Mick said it “Should be good crack…”

    I’m assuming you meant ‘craic’ or is there a substance-based reason to be awake at 5:33am? I think we should be told…

  • Only Asking.

    Good luck, you’ve got my vote.

    At least this is a competition in which there can be no losers, for to be regarded as even last in a line of NON-Lib-Dem bloggers gives one infinitely more caché than if one were to be voted the very best ever actual Lib-Dem anything.

    What is a Lib-Dem blog anyway? How does it work? I imagine the readers post in their comments on any given topic first and then, having weighed which line is most popular, the blogger later pens a piece in support of it.

    The wisdom of crowds Rory?

    Better that than a slavish worship of the febrile drooling of a dead Victorian or a psychotic Russian.

    Cap’n scooby,

    Mick used the word crack, a good North of England word for a long, long time.

    For some strange reason this word was gaelicized to craic about 20 years ago, and this is now is how it is spelt by virtually everyone, loyalist paramilitaries included. For no good reason whatsoever. If you see a shite irish pub, you can be shure than some compulsory craic is not far away.

    Ach dhomsa, agus déarfainn an chuid is mó do gaelgeoiraí, ta an chrack i bhfad níos fearr ná an chraic. Togha fir, a Mhicí.

    Crowd pleasing, Liberalchi, does not equate with “the wisdom of crowds” I’m afraid, anymore than aggressive pr equates with policy.
