Left-wing version

Michael Taube - yes, the Michael Taube - lists his top ten favourite leftist Canadian blogs. Making the cut, Robert "Fuck the Jews" McClelland. Charming.*

I disagreed with the first list, obviously, but any list of left-wing Canadian blogs that does not include Gen X at 40 shows a list maker who does not know what he is talking about. So much for that.

* No. Fuck the French.

See your earlier note about my lists for my response.

As for McClelland's infamous comment, yes, I could have lived without it. But many of the blogs I listed have included or discussed some pretty controversial topics.

Hence, if I used controversy as a benchmark, the lists would have been very, very weak.

Why was Gen X at 40 not included? I had never heard of this blog before you mentioned it. I'll take a look at it tonight for future reference.

I had honestly never heard of you either, Michael, but please do have a read. But remember all the cool kids are really reading the beer blog.

Thanks for your comments. I took a very quick look at Gen X at 40 last night, and I liked what I saw.

The beer blog sounds rather intriguing, too.

Merry Christmas!
