Award Winning Bloggery

Much thanks to libhom at Godless Liberal Homo for passing along the Superior Scribbler Award to unbrainwashed. For (in his words, not mine) "Tired of all the crap you are fed by the corporate media and the politicians? Enjoy snark and reasoning that undermines the garbage. Acknowledging brainwashing in this society itself is largely taboo, which makes the blog's title especially gratifying."
Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.
Now, the hard part. Picking out five from my many favorites.

Born At The Crest Of The Empire-Mike always offers insightful analysis and opinion based on the facts, rather than than emotion (in other words, it's the complete opposite of this blog). Tireless and endlessly updated, it's worth visiting several times a day.

Who Hijacked Our Country-Tom I see as a kindred soul, one who is as disappointed and disgusted in the direction our country has taken as I am.

MCCS1977-Succinct and too the point and always lavishly illustrated. Superiorly snarky, Fred's just cool.

Stone Soup Musings-Fellow Michigander (Michiganian?) kathy shows the connection between the local and the national.

Brown Man Thinking Hard- I discovered Brown man recently, and have added it to my regular rounds. Witty, intelligent, embodying all the qualities I wish this blog had.

There were so many other blogs I would have liked to give this award to, picking out five meant that there were at least five others I wish I could have gifted. (Or, I could have copied libhom, who gave out six instead of five) But then, I would have been taking away someone else's opportunity to award a friend, since at times it seems that that's what we all really are.

Thanks for spreading the solidarity.

Thanks for the compliment and the award.

Now -- Ahem -- I hate to be a wet blanket, but I never take part in these award things. I never wanted to be in the position of choosing just five bloggers to pass the award on to; there are too many other great people out there who I'd be leaving out.

But thanks. Hope I'm not banned :)

Thanks for the Superior Scribbler award, friend. It sounds much classier than bitchy woman complaining about the state of our state and nation!

Is there a time element involved in awarding this to other bloggers? I have a busy week ahead of me because of the holiday, but I'll try to pass the award on to other Superior Scribblers by next weekend.

no problem
I understand how you feel, I felt bad for passing up many other worthy bloggers myself.
Do it when you can, I don't think there's a time limit.

Lew, I feel terrible, but I'm going to have to back out of this. I'm afraid I can't come up with 5 blogs willing to participate. That's partly because I wore out my welcome with some of them when I first started blogging, and also because they're not the type to participate in this kind of thing.

I hope I didn't mess things up for you. Sorry.
