Why I Read Political Wire

I read a lot of blogs, and I mean a lot of blogs – I count 53 in NetNewsWire right now. But none is as important to me as Taegan Goddard’s Political Wire. If you read Minipundit regularly, you know I link to Taegan’s site quite often. There’s a reason for this. Anything and everything that one could ever need to know about American elections and campaigns can be found at Political Wire – and it’s up there faster and in more detail than it is anywhere else. There are a handful of blogs – Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias, Kevin Drum, Steve Benen, Shakespeare’s Sister – that I treat like very good op-ed pages. But Political Wire is the only blog that I treat like the news section of a newspaper. I trust it more than practically any other news source. And it’s earned that. So, if for some unfortunate reason you’re not reading it already, please start. Now.
P.S. If you’re wondering what this post is about, see here.
