Daou wins post of the week. Scats loses 76th week in a row. 

In case you haven't seen it yet, read it immediately here.

This, then, is the reality: progressive bloggers and online activists - positioned on the front lines of a cold civil war - face a thankless and daunting task: battle the Bush administration and its legions of online and offline apologists, battle the so-called "liberal"” media and its tireless weaving of pro-GOP narratives, battle the ineffectual Democratic leadership, and battle the demoralization and frustration that comes with a long, steep uphill struggle.

Which leads to an idea: do you think there'd be any use in having a periodical hardcopy compendium of the best (left) blog writing? Would this help advance the ideas or counter the winger bullshit in any way? By forcing book reviews and talk-show plugs for example, it could get the POV across in other trad media? Or maybe a weekly magazine roundup? Maybe it could work as sort of an open-source version of the GOP talking-points blast faxing?

Just spitballin'.
