It is time for the first Beakerkin Awards. Unlike those of Hollywood we do not take ourselves to seriously. Long term readers are encouraged to give lengthy acceptance speeches.
Best Poster Warren . Warren has been here from the start. This blog took evolved to its current form from comedy. Our critics contend we are still doing comedy just less subtle. Warren is my best friend on the blogosphere and at the start it was almost WWE like.
Most Unpredictable: Justin Morris . Justin Morris is a friend but one can never tell exactly where he will fall on any issue.
Honorable Mention Bum From Jersey. I respect indepedents and the Bum speaks his own mind and is ineresting.
Most Comedic. Mr Beamish wins this hands down and outpaces the rest. His posts on complex matters is articulate. People forget the numerous articulate classics because the comedy is so great.
Out of the Closet Moderate Rob Bayn. We disagree with Rob but he is not part of the Blame America first Club. He is becoming a true independent.
Now onto the Troll categories. A good Troll raises relevant points with a sneer. Thus
much conversationand articulate response is generated. The classic dialogues of Farmer John and the Duck are good reading.
Best Troll Ducky. The Duck is an example for trolls to emulate. He sneers and posts
relevant material that generates responses. He doesn't cry or repeat himself and that is why he is the Gold standard of trolls.
Least Talented Troll: Fake John Brown repeats himself is incoherent and a bore
Most Deranged: Robert Lindsay 147 . I want him to come here and explain how Mao and Stalin saved lives. His blatant anti semitism is a hoot. What other blogger is stoopid enough to post the loaded term "Jewish Question" on his blog.
Best Comedic Prop Troll . Recididooofus aka Fizzzzzzzhog or 167. The Doctor Smith immitator whines and cries while inventing imaginary races. A gay man praising Saudi and Iranian justice clearly needs help. The usual cries about his not being a Communist or Anti Semitic while indulging freely in both are comedic. His use of the term Zionist Media or Usreal alone speak vollumes.
Back to standard Awards.
Most liable to scare the daylights out of totalitarians Jason Pappas. 167 fled rather then deal with Jason. Jason also has won an award from a Jihadi site so he must be doing something correct.
Most Eloquent Farmer John. He does his research and is the first poster to have a dedicated special.
Most Dedicated AOW . AOW provides an excellent example to all of us. Produce quality posts and you will have an active board.
Classiest Esther. Lady Esther is so sweet even trolls do not stay there for long.
Best Links: Democracy Frontline has the best links of any blog I read. One can get quality blogs in any spot by linking there. Do check out the Indoneasan Blog amazing reading.
Now onto the Pros
Best Book Serialized : Richard Poe's Seven Myths of Gun Control. Poe moved me to the right on this issue.
Best Site: Front Page Magazine. Quality articles brought to you everyday by David Horowitz.
Favorite Pundit: Dr Yeagley. Dr Yeagley is a friend and teacher on many levels. Interestingly, he doesn't seem to move my opinions but reinfoce existing ones.
Underated. Antiprotester is a fitting sequel to Moonbat Central . It is always lively
Many Blogs do not last long
Most Missed Kajando Always interesting and often hysterical
Honorable Mention Elijah has restarted a New Blog and there is a place for his brand
of material. How many of us can talk about the same subjects.
One year strong
Mr Beamish in 08, Ducky to the Smokehouse and 167 Lost in Cyberspace. I can see him crying about "Zionist Robots and Usreal"
I am debating to mark the 13 year of the WTC 93 attack with a special post. Long term readers know I am a survivor of that blast. The 93 blast has been forgotten and overshadowed. Maybe Jason Pappas who lives in NYC still remembers but outside of this blog who remembers.
On Deck Manyanna Lies about Spies. Before there was Monica there was Elizabeth Bentley. Meet the Professor who still thinks Alger Hiss was innocent and you wonder why Journalists are so messed up.
