Blimey. James Poulos has been kind enough to nominate this blog for inclusion in some pantheon of excellence. It's my duty, apparently, to continue the chain letter of blog love by nominating further reading you might enjoy. That being so, feast yourself upon these:

Mr Eugenides
: Vituperative spluttering from an enraged Scottish Tory perspective.

Opera Chic: Smart and sassy take on operatic shenanigans. Especially in Italy.

Mgoblog: Everything you need to know about Michigan football. And lots that you didn't know you needed to know.

French Politics: Exactly what it says on the tin - Art Goldhammer's invaluable primer. Better than what you read in the (English-language) newspapers.

Toby Harnden: The Telegraph's man in Washington offers a British view of the US campaign trail. Best of Breed (Foreign Correspondent division).

Rod Dreher: Crunchy Cons and Christians in Texas. Consistently interesting, often nourishing and always dispelling stereotypes.

The American Scene
: Reihan's baby. Stimulating discourse gauranteed courtesy of Mr Salam's troupe of young polymaths.

The Stump: TNR's Mike Crowley and Noam Scheiber distill the campaign for you. Going from strength to strength.
