The Fall 2005 Rock Solid in the Blogosphere Award Goes To …

Before announcing the Rock Solid in the Blogosphere winner, I would like to commend all of this quarter’s nominees. Because of the high quality of the nominees, it was an especially difficult decision this time around. To those who didn’t win, remember that it is an honor just to be nominated. To those who weren’t nominated, remember that you can nominate yourself.

Without further ado, the Fall 2005 Rock Solid in the Blogosphere Award goes to … Cathy in the Wright (aka St. Kate)! Congratulations Cathy on becoming the first female Rock Solid winner! You can now take your place among such pioneering women as Sandra Day O’Connor, Sally Ride, and Geena Davis.

But Cathy didn’t win only because we didn’t want to have the awards show picketed by Martha Burk. Nor did she win becuase she's so darned nice (although both weighed in her favor). No, she deserves the honor on merit. Like our last winner, Atomizer, Cathy understands that sometimes in blogging, less is more. She may go a week or more without a post, but rest assured that every post is worth the wait as Cathy struggles to keep the Senator, Governor, and VP in line, not only at Cathy in the Wright, but posting as St. Kate at the M.A.W.B. Squad as well.

The Milwaukee Sentinel Journal might argue that Cathy’s honor deserves an asterisk, because as a Republican she doesn’t represent the mainstream views of most women. Nothing could be further from the truth. I will illustrate with two of Cathy’s posts (one from Cathy in the Wright, and one from the M.A.W.B. Squad) that when taken together, show just how wise, insightful and representative of mainstream women her views are:

From the M.A.W.B. Squad last spring:
“...anyone else in the Squad get wonderful Karl Rove-like vibes from Sisyphus?”

And later that summer at Cathy in the Wright:
“Remember, Casey, it’s just Huey Lewis. It’s not as if we’re going to meet (and here I put my hand over my heart and sighed)…Karl Rove.”

When you check our sidebar for the Rock Solid winners, there will be no asterisk by Cathy’s name.

Also, we salute the other distinguished nominees: Kevin “The Susan Lucci of the Rock Solids” Ecker, Learned Foot, and our own Nihilist in Golf Pants.

If you're like me, you find her posts detailing what happened at soccer practice on Tuesday somewhat less than interesting.

Is this some kind of affirmative action move on your part Sissypuss?

Sisyphus, you darling! Thanks for the honors. I haven't been able to get near the computer all weekend. (Too much soccer - plenty of good posts coming up). What a nice surprise for Sunday night.

Thanks again. And for the record...I've always liked you best.
