    At first I thought the blogs could save America.  Now, I don't.  If Wonkette is considered "liberal," it's all over.  The so-called "liberals" are the same as the RWers.  Two sides to the same dirty coin.

    •  Looks like they blocked all political blogs (0+ / 0-)

      Regardless of political bent (or lack thereof-I consider Wonketter to be non-partisan).  Heck, they may have blocked all blogs (or attempted to, at least).

      •  Also blocked (0+ / 0-)

        TPM and TPMmuckraker are blocked as well.

        After posting, I called the state's tech office and spoke to COT Assistant Director Jim Lydon there, who claimed not to know anything about the blocking. They said they block "a lot of inappropriate business sites," such as gambling or shopping sites, but that he didn't know anything about blocking political sites. But he said he'd get back to me.

        Since then, it appears the office has got wind that this is a bigger deal. I called him again when I learned we'd been blocked and was referred to the press rep of the state's Secretary of Finance. I left a message there.

        The Governor's office still won't return our calls.

        And Atrios is blocked too.
