Guardian Angel

Announcing a new set of political bloggery awards [“We’re not offering prizes to the top-rated blogs. (They probably wouldn’t want them.) Just pretty good publicity”], The Guardian’s mysterious Backbencher lets slip that she reads the Virtual Stoa…

In the meantime, the Backbencher kicks off the search with her own choices: the quirky Virtual Stoa, scourge of the Lib Dems Oliver Kamm, the overflowing Political Theory Daily Review, and for its thrilling political optimism, Howard Dean’s Blog for America.

Doesn’t she have better things to do with her time?Anyway, she’s missing the point of the Googlebomb, there, I’m afraid. The point is not the thrilling optimism of Dean’s blog; it’s that Dean’s optimistic. And it’s been a successful Googlebomb, too.
