  1. It’s a tie .
    Crooks & Liars and Think Progress. Both are full of information with multiple links.

  2. Driftglass
    (very) honorable mentions to Rude Pundit, Joe.My.God., Shakesville, Digby, Bill in Exile, Down With Tyranny . . .

  3. For news, other than First Draft, The Washington Monthly is a daily must read. Also Paul Krugman’s Conscience of a Liberal.
    For fun, lately I’ve been wasting plenty of time at Sporcle.com…trivia, and lots of it. Who knew someone translated Beatles song titles into Latin?

  4. Well, other than MINE … I spend a lot of time over at Balloon Juice. And I love Gawker. And then, for completely non-political stuff, I really love Writer Unboxed and Fast Company and TED cuz I love the variety of videos over there. And of course, there’s Twitter, good Lord I spend waaay too much time over there. And then we have Boing Boing, which is fun for laughs. And … and …
    Jesus. I spendwaaay too much time on the internet.

  5. Twitter. Dammit, I live on Twitter. It takes a courageous major addict like me to just admit it.
    Lots of the New Orleans blogs are also among my favorite virtual dwelling spaces. And I still miss a dad/everything blog a fellow out of Seattle used to have called the Zero Boss. He did try to resurrect it when he followed his now ex-wife to try (and fail) to repair their marriage, but it never had as much steam as it had in late 2006.

  6. I like Digby and Echidne and angryblackbitch with a side of cheezeburgers best.
    Washington Monthly and C&L and haseattle are favorites too.
    How can I choose just one? That is like trying to pick a favorite color. Colors are beyootiful, every one.

  7. First Draft is number one but after that I go for Media Matters, Daily Kos, Digby, Science Based Medicine, Krugman and Pharyngula.
    I hang out a lot in the comments of our local rag. Trying to educate the wingnuts, doncha know.
    You can’t pick just one. That’s like trying to pick your favorite singer.

  8. Other than Digby and TPM, I have come to avoid political blogs like the plague. I’ve grown weary of everyone trying too hard to be too smart/right/indispensable/insightfful too often. If I wanted that, I would just watch TV pundits more often.
    I ADORE Surviving the World. Love that guy. http://survivingtheworld.net/
    Lifehacker, Gawker, Jezebel are daily stops. AV Club for quick recaps and media updates. Dorothy Snarker and Jet Girl for fandom-y goodness.
    Longform.org never fails me.

  9. Well, nowadays I don’t even have time to come to THIS blog -there have been Fridays when I forget to check in on ferretblogging and catblogging until Peter reminds me! I do always like the weekend question thread. Also, my workplace has cracked down on internet use – the two times I was busted was when I was preparing new lectures and going to all kinds of websites (New England J of Med, Nature, Science, etc) and google images (in addition to checking in on first draft!) But I digress…
    When I have time, and REMEMBER to get around to them I like two foodie blogs with wonderful writing and recipes (some of which I have even tried!) They are: Tea and Cookies, and
    Homesick Texan.

  10. Twitter, since I got a Droid.
    Otherwise, in addition to this place, all the othere creative and talented people who live inside my Google Reader. And Fark, because if it were in my Google Reader I’d never get any damn work done.

  11. eschatonblog is my homepage.
    When I don’t have time to read the news, Atrios serves what’s important in it to me as soon as I turn on my computer.
    If there’s nothing important in the news, Atrios tells me what to think.

  12. Can’t say what is my favorite but daily visits (other than here) include Atrios, Buzzflash, Think Progress, TPM, Attaturk, Watertiger, Digby, and Pharyngula.

  13. Charles Pierce, Roy Edroso, & Doghouse Riley, not necessarily in that order.Check ’em out if you haven’t already.

  14. Pharyngula, first and foremost.
    Close behind: Why Evolution is True, Steve Benen, TPM.

  15. Funny/smart/:
    there’s been very little the past few years, but at its best it’s the most insightful and best writing ever
    I double endorse whyevolutionistrue (Pharyngula right up there as well).
    Choice in Dying
    Funny and super dirty/naughty/verging on porn:
