Thinking Blogger Awards With Odds And Ends

Shaun from Kiko's House tagged me with a Thinking Blogger Award and I definitely feel honored. He likes the way I usually don't waste words in trying to make a point. Which in this case is, thank you.

Keeping the tradition going I nominate Rick at One Little Victory as a Thinking Blogger, his brilliant post for July 4, 2007 was just that, brilliant. He's going on to the Blogroll, he was already on the Reader.

The Omnipotent Poobah is also a fantastic example of a Thinking Blogger. He doesn't mince words and he gets his point across with a panache and flair that I only aspire to. He says he hates memes, but this is an honor not a meme, so he might not mind.

Staying in the O portion of the alphabet, Andy at the Ostroy Report is voicing his intelligent opinion on a regular basis again and it is a good thing, as Martha might say. He is definitely a Thinking Blogger.

JurassicPork at Welcome to Pottersville can skewer the stupid as smoothly as a sushi chef fillets a fish. Plus he can be supremely funny while revealing the truth, especially when he takes down the witch of the airwaves. He's one of my favorite Thinking Bloggers.

Last and definitely not least, Fake Steve at the Secret Diary of Steve Jobs is a Thinking Blogger of another sort. Negative people upset him but I get a smile every time I read his posts (an every day occurrence), the sarcasm is priceless. Between frigtards and iTards, he keeps me laughing.

Okay, back to my quirky point of view. How tiny does your dick brain have to be to kidnap a three year old girl for political reasons? They obviously aren't interested in the sympathy vote or they are trying to demonstrate their rendition skills in an effort to pick up some extra money from the Bush administration.

That sucks! seems to be the response of most of the commenters to the story of the man who got sucked out of an airplane at 20,000 feet. Quick thinking on the pilot's part and great strength on his is the only way he lived to tell about it. I just don't like flying and this story didn't help. He still looks a little wide eyed, don't you think?

I'm confused, which is it? Are civilian deaths in Iraq down or up? I guess you really can do anything you want with statistics, but these were people. Maybe not us overglorified Americans, but they were mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, aunts, uncles, grandparents, somebody's loved one, you get the picture. I hope.


  1. Hey, thanks for the linkie-poo, Deb, but pray tell, who, exactly, is the witch of the airwaves?

    After all, there's a plethora to choose from...

  2. Aw, that's sweet Deb. Thanks for thinking of me, although I'm not sure where you formed such a lofty perception of me.

    I'll take the award, but skip the meme part...unless someone dies if I break the chain or something :-)

  3. JP,

    The blond one who Ms Edwards smacked down, I despise her almost as much as the shrub.


    I formed that opinion by reading your writing, :). It's another one of those ways to highlight someone who writes well but might not be getting the exposure or recognition. Jollyroger has five nods and would have had six but I love Fake Steve.
