Rock Solid in the Blogosphere for Winter 2006

Many of you have been asking, “Hey Sisyphus, it’s already spring. Why haven’t you announced the Winter 2006 Rock Solid in the Blogosphere winner?” Truth be told, there has been a lot of behind the scenes controversy here at NIGP surrounding the winter award. We still haven’t reached a unanimous decision, but since I’m the founder of the Rock Solid award and because it would be unfair to Cathy in the Wright to ask her to continue to perform the arduous duties of the reigning Rock Solid winner past her term, I am prepared to announce this quarter’s winner. The Winter 2006 Rock Solid in the Blogosphere goes to … Learned Foot.

Once again there were many fine nominees, including Kevin Ecker, Craig Westover, Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit, and the Nihilist’s preferred choice, Katie from Yucky Salad with Bones for her Brokeback Mountain Post (if you ask me, the Nihilist is just a little too obsessed with that movie). All of these nominees would make fine Rock Solid winners, but I believe that Learned Foot stands out, even among this august group of bloggers.

Despite what the Nihilist may think, Learned Foot has established himself as not only Rock Solid, but as one of the true giants of the blogosphere. Whether he is shining the light of day on moronic letter writers to the local newspapers, exposing the Dems plan to whack Bin laden, or having some gentle fun at the Nihilist’s expense, Learned Foot is an inspiration to us all.

Even the best of us go into blogging slumps from time to time, even Learned Foot. But when Learned Foot hits a rare slump, he admits it and calls in a talented blogger for a Sisyphus Open Thread.

Once again, congratulations to Learned Foot. You, like our previous winners Atomizer and Cathy in the Wright, are Rock Solid in the Blogosphere!

Congrats to the foot. But can I at least give a speech?

"I would not be standing here if it weren't for two very important men in my life; Mr Rawley Farnsworth, who was my high school drama teacher, who taught me to act well the part, there all the glory lies. And one of my classmates under Mr Farnsworth, Mr John Gilkerson.

I mention their names because they are two of the finest gay Americans, two wonderful men that I had the good fortune to be associated with, to fall under their inspiration at such a young age. I wish my babies could have the same sort of teacher, the same sort of friends. And there lies my dilemma here tonight. I know that my work in this case is magnified by the fact that the streets of heaven are too crowded with angels. We know their names. They number 1,000 for each of the red ribbons we wear here tonight.

They finally rest in the warm embrace of the gracious creator of us all. A healing embrace that cools their fevers, that clears their skin, and allows their eyes to see the simple, self-evident commonsense truth that is made manifest by the benevolent creator of us all. And was written down on paper by wise men, tolerant men, in the city of Philadelphia 200 years ago. God bless you all, God have mercy on us all, and God bless America."
