I have enjoyed Collective Sigh for a long time now, and as usual, cannot help but give a big "Hell Yeah" to this fellow's rants. Of course, he spends a lot of time on American Politics, a failing of so many bloggers, but for once, here is a blog that makes sense. Not that I agree with a single word of it you understand, just that it is so well written that I am in awe of the talent.
Here is a sample. From.....http://collectivesigh.blogspot.com/2005_09_18_collectivesigh_archive.html#112741414561783791

CheerleadingIf you look inside the 9/26/2005 print edition of TIME magazine, you'll find a selection letters from readers.Responding to TIME's coverage of the Katrina catastrope, Suzann Soliday of Fresno, California writes:
How dare anyone blame the president for this disaster. The left-wingers have criticized the Bush Administration constantly. How can anyone - politician or member of the news media - not support our government? The critics have gone too far. We must work together, and those who can't must stay out of the way. I am tired of the divide in this country.You see, Ms. Soliday, it's not JUST the Katrina disaster, but a whole trail of destruction all over the world. And it's not JUST St. George, but the whole host of incompetent, deluded advisors who give the poor boy incredibly bad advice.We left-wingers are simply following the stellar example set by the right-wingers during the Clinton administration; strike early and often. And we actually have reality-based, valid reasons.As Bill Maher said of our Fearless Leader, "On your watch, we've lost almost all of our allies, the surplus, four airliners, two Trade Centers, a piece of the Pentagon and the City of New Orleans".Opposing the Bush administration isn't hard at all, Ms. Soliday. In fact, we left-wingers are quite pleased to be divided from you and the rest of the sheep cheerleading for President Catastrophe.
