blogosphere roundup

Because rounding up the best blogs in the span of a week is just impossible with so much material, and because I simply do not have the time or energy to devote to a daily "blogosphere roundup," this feature has become a periodic thing. I'll post a roundup whenever I've recently seen quite a few good blogs. That way, I'll only be passing on the best of the best.

Here are some excellent and recent blogs from both a local, state, and national level:
  1. Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post offers advice to "poll-drunk Democrats" about the upcoming congressional midterms.
  2. Stop Kinky! asks if Kinky Friedman is simply a trojan horse for the Perry campaign and gives several more reasons not to vote for the comedic independent challenger.
  3. In the Pink Texas reports on the U.S. Senate vote to build a 370 mile fence along the U.S.-Mexico border.
  4. Vince at Capitol Annex makes some great points in an interview with State Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo).
  5. South Texas Chisme tells us that Speaker of the House Denny Hastert seems to think that those earning $40,000 per year or less do not pay taxes.
  6. The informative Grits for Breakfast fills us in on a rejected jail bond measure in Tyler.
  7. Stephen Webster, aka the Gonzo Muckraker, reports on a controversial meeting of the Denton County Republican Women's Club.
  8. Right of Texas reports that Governor Perry has signed a law that would make funeral protests illegal (which is only relevant to nutcases like Fred Phelps).
  9. PinkDome says goodbye to State Rep. Mary Denny (R-Flower Mound).
  10. Burnt Orange Report discusses a new poll that finds Bush at a low 42% approval rating in Texas, with only three states showing a positive rating: Wyoming, Idaho, and Utah.

That stuff about Kinky is insane. I had no idea he was such a moran.

Make sure to tell everyone you know. The more people that know the truth about Kinky, the less likely he is to spoil this election.
