Liberal Coalition Top TenTwenty
Week of 1/1 thru 1/7/06

I suspect the only reason I have a Top 20 this week is because Steve Gilliard has five of them. When the man's on a roll, there's no stopping him. Check these out in particular:

The coming Republican shitstorm
Dividing the man from his mother (the comment section is good)
Dutch tired of goofy foriegners coming to smoke weed
Color free magazines

Elsewhere around the Liberal Coalition members' blogs:

• Alex at Sooner Thought talks about a local Christian university proposing to fire divorced employees.

• Bryant at Make Me A Commentator! has some fascinating thoughts on how orthodox Judiasm views folks like Jack Abramoff (who's an orthodox Jew in the same way that someone like Pat Robertson is a Christian).

• Echidne speaks of the memory hole.

• Tena at First Draft is royally pissed at stupid polls, but that may be because her head still hurts from trying to parse presidential syntax.

• Horatio at Dodecahedron ponders the pot pill.

• Jeff at Speedkill has our parsha reading for the day, from the Book of Enoch.

• John at archy asks, when is a bomb not a bomb? More and more frequently, it seems.

• Jude Camwell at Iddybud notes the deep divide between the Dow and real life, and the lack of a divide between people of private faith and their public political activities.

• A round of applause to Leah at Corrente for going above and beyond in live-blogging this past week's Alito hearings!

• Maru at WTF Is It Now?? watches the TV in her mind.

• Mustang Bobby at Bark Bark Woof Woof reviews Brokeback Mountain.

• And last but not least is another Norbizness installment of "The Left Is"!
