time is on their side

a big congrats to our good friends @ crooks & liars for being named one of time magazine's top 25 blogs of 2009:

when professional musician john amato launched the crooks and liars political blog in october 2003, it featured something that was quite novel in those ancient pre-youtube days: video clips. today, crooks and liars is among the most widely read political blogs on the web, and amato — now known in blog circles as "the vlogfather" — is recognized as a pioneer of video blogging. the video selections — snippets from government press briefings, congressional hearings and tv talk shows — are the sort of clips that jon stewart uses for fodder, but this is a chance to see the video in its original unintentionally humorous context. amato leans liberal, but his blog is an equal opportunity attack dog, taking a bite out of the crooks and liars on both sides of the aisle.
and the year ain't even over yet!

addendum: and look who gets on time's list of most overrated blogs! can you say "karma"?

Thanks so much, Skippy. I just spent a delightful hour among those blogs and bookmarked a couple.

We linked to skippy and C&L for this most auspicious award.

(We have to admit, we never would have found out about it otherwise. time may be on our side, but Time, ehh, not so much.)
