When it comes to political blogging, I tend to follow folks on the basis of the quality of their writing as opposed to the quality of their ideology. Right now, my favorite political blogger by far is Charlie Pierce. Pierce has also been a sportswriter (and still pens on occasion at Grantland, if you’d prefer to skip the politics) and that will sometimes show up to make a point.
Which is why I enjoy the lede to this post so much. You don’t have to agree with his politics to get a kick out of the insult.
