FITS & The Queen: What the Cool Kids Read ...
The FITS' gals are famous ... again.
No, we're not talking about alt-rockers "Death Cab for Cutie" including us in their song lyrics (truth be told, we made that up), nor are we talking about our "Mayor of Importantville" or "Chairman Egg-tooth" nicknames all but appearing in the House Journal, nor are we talking about the unexpected 17-minute visit the U.S. Department of Justice paid to our website the other day (oops) ... we're referring this time to Washington Post political blogger extraordinaire Chris Cilliza hookin' us up with some national love on former MSNBC producer Howard Mortman's "Blogs The Famous Media Read."
Along with the Queen of the S.C. Blogosphere, Laurin P. Manning (above), FITS was described as giving "a great sense of what political people in the states are talking about." And while we probably don't deserve to be included in the same sentence (or even sentence fragment) as our illustrious and ubiquitous queen, we here at Stiletto Mafia Headquarters are honored nonetheless ... or nonetheless honored ... take your pick.
In all seriousness, this is the most tickled we've been since the politically-dyslexic folks over at www.leftyblogs.com added us to their list of "liberal" websites, along with resident S.C. Sanford-hater Ross Shealy. Oh well, one out of two is pretty good for a bunch of Marxist-Leninists.
Anyway, in case you haven't checked out Chris Cilliza's blog "The Fix," we strongly recommend it. "The Fix" is a great source for insider info on political races from all over the country, and Cilliza is consistently spitting out some of the best 2008 Presidential Primary analysis available anywhere. It's a must-read for political junkies who look at polling breakdowns the way the rest of us look at the Life & Arts section, unless of course you're a bunch of crazy political gals like us!!!!
Oh well, Happy St. Pattie's Day!!!!!
