Here's a bit of good news amid all the bad. Daily Kos was voted top progressive blog by this year's AlterNet polling.
For all its warts, flame wars, bugs, pie fights, and raucous discourse, DailyKos wins top progressive blog on the tubes. Congratulations, Markos, front pagers, diarists, tech nerds, lurkers, commenters, and everyone who makes this crazy place so interesting and so much fun.
I'm a relatively old timer who spends a little too much time here, mostly just reading, but also contributing a few comments here and there. I try to stay out of the fights, but I do appreciate the passion (when it stays civil.)
I miss some of the wonderful members of this community who have passed away, but have left their indelible spirit in these electronic corridors. (exmearden, RIP)
I love the pootie, woozle, and pet diaries that bring a bit of joy to counteract all the serious stuff.
The level of knowledge about politics and policy; and a huge range of topics from environment to economics is unsurpassed on Daily Kos when compared to other blogs.
What other political blog can say they have a Cheers and Jeers?
We may get crazy from time to time, but there is one thing DailyKos has more than any other blog: A heart!
So, keep up the great work, everyone. And again congratulations!
