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.
