The same but with a difference
There are more political/opinion blogs out there than one can possibly read, although I try to do my part. Most, even over here on the left side of things, are partisan. Then there's Billmon, aka The Whiskey Bar. Billmon, while certainly leaning left, is no partisan: he seems to find the Democrats as lame and hopeless as the neocons are dangerous. He's been on fire during the Israel/Hizbillah conflict, providing the level of analysis and insight that you used to have to pay for. Commenting for Billmon's posts takes place at a different site, Moon of Alabama and is typically thought-provoking and flame free. If you're trying to get your head around what's happening, you can't do any better.
