BEST BLOG (LEFT-WING) - 2006
Minvolved is one of the newest lefty blogs on the scene, but it's proving to be one of the most prolific. Started by the folks behind Clever Peasantry (now defunct) and MN Publius (www.mnpublius.com), Minvolved, as with our right-wing choice, sticks to the facts with a dash of humor, a modicum of dismissive attitude, and the occasional post on furry lobsters. Minvolved keeps a close eye on unraveling stories, such as the recent demise of the Center of the American Experiment, while combing dozens of local political blogs and out-state newspapers, eschewing the bloviating and hyperbole, for useful news and information. It has an unfortunate portmanteau for a name, but it's a smart and comprehensive political site.
