The Mudflats is my all time favorite political blog. It’s not all political all of the time. There is also Brian the Moose (and his amie Brenda). There is Springtime in Alaska. All written with a delightful style that will surely bring a smile to your face. Really. Also, too.
I first found The Mudflats the day Sarah Palin was selected as John McCain’s running mate. Like many others I blinked and said “Sarah who?” and went looking for information. Of all of the blogs I read (because you couldn’t find anything of substance in the mainstream media) The Mudflats had the skivvy. They were local, were up to date with the goings on of Alaskan politics and it was accessible and easy reading. I read some others: Progressive Alaska, Celtic Diva, Shannon Moore, Tspey, I eat gravel, but The Mudflats tops them all.
So go vote for AKmuckracker and send her to Netroots. You’ll be glad you did. Then go to The Mudflats and start educating yourself. Even if you don’t live in Alaska (I don’t) you’ll enjoy your time there.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
