The 2006 "Bloggie" Awards

Last year we gave our winners an all-expense paid trip to Upper Conway Lower Aynor and their very own blue ribbon-winning Alpaca. After numerous complaints about the Alpacas, however, we are finally acquiescing. This year's "Bloggie" award recipients will receive "Golden Freds" in honor of our pet squirrel, whose name is actually Genghis.

To the envelopes ...

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Ross Shealy, BBQ & Politics - Ross has given up blogging to focus like a laser beam on the rectum of billionaire school choice advocate Howie Rich. In his prime, however, there was no one funnier than Gervais S. Bridges.

KING AND QUEEN OF THE S.C. BLOGOSPHERE AWARDS

Kings - Jeffrey Sewell and Mike Green, SC Hotline
Queens - The FITS Girls

BLOG OF THE YEAR AWARD

Crunchy GOP - What can we say, Sunny Philips stepped it up this year. Lots of good original content, breaking insider news and some of the most spirited "comment wars" we've seen in a long time. Minus the Katon Dawson lovefests, the Crunchy Republican is a must-read.

BEST NEW BLOG AWARD

Jaded Listener - A tad on the conservative side for our tastes but the kid has definitely got game. We linked you straight to his "Election Notes" article above, which is one of the smartest blog posts we've ever read.

BEST LOCAL BLOG AWARD

Seeding Spartanburg - Our girl Tammy calls 'em like she sees 'em and really doesn't give a damn if she pisses you off. We like that.

BEST ENTERPRISE BLOGGING - CAMPAIGN 2006

S.C. Solon - This blog had its way with Democratic Comptroller General candidate Drew Theodore, and got the mainstream media to pick a lot of it up. Nice work, pledge.

BEST ORIGINAL VIDEO FOOTAGE ON A BLOG AWARD

Brad Warthen - Grady Patterson's editorial board interview.

BEST USE OF AUDIO TECHNOLOGY ON A BLOG AWARD

Michael Reece - Okay, we could have done without the three Trav Robertson segments, but Reece is by far and away leading the field in this category.

BEST NAME FOR BLOG AWARDS AWARD

The Golden Crackpipes - Tim Kelly cracks us up regularly. Now come on, daddy, your girls are hurtin' bad, just give us a little bit ...

BLOGGER MOST LIKELY TO ASK IF YOU HAVE READ HIS BLOG TODAY AND THE ANSWER IS "NO" AWARD

Joshua Gross - Live it, learn it, know it, love it ... and click on every hyperlink. There will be a quiz at the end of this conversation on how brilliant Josh is and how many SCRG/Club for Growth candidates were victorious in this year's elections.

"AS THE BLOGOSPHERE TURNS" NEEDLESS SOAP OPERA DRAMA AWARD

Roxanne Walker

"HOW IN THE HELL DID I LET WILL FOLKS MAKE ME HIS BITCH?" AWARD

John Rainey, Greg Ryberg

BLOG MOST LIKELY TO COMMENT INAPPROPRIATELY ON THE FEMALE ANATOMY AWARD

FITS - Seriously, after butts and legs it's only a matter of time before Sic Willie turns his attention to State House Hooters.

POLITICIAN MOST LIKELY TO RELATE WITH BLOG READERS AWARD

T-Rav - It's just how he rolls, people.

POLITICIAN LEAST LIKELY TO RELATE WITH BLOG READERS AWARD

Hugh Leatherman - Probably things "Blogs" are edible.

LOBBYIST MOST LIKELY TO BE READING BLOGS WHEN THEY SHOULD BE WORKING AWARD

Sara Hopper - Relax, Sara. If we start making fun of your clothing selections again we'll give you a heads-up.

GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES MOST LIKELY TO BE READING BLOGS WHEN THEY SHOULD BE WORKING AWARD

Anybody who works for Jim DeMint or Joe Wilson.

STATE LEGISLATORS MOST LIKELY TO BE READING BLOGS WHEN THEY SHOULD BE WORKING AWARD

Reps. Wallace Scarborough and Catherine Ceips.

PRIVATE SECTOR EMPLOYEES MOST LIKELY TO BE READING BLOGS WHEN THEY SHOULD BE WORKING AWARD

Rebecca Dulin and the TFC.

Well that wraps it up for us, but here's the fun part - your comments. After all, the best "Bloggie" Awards are the ones you think up and post below!

not very funny this year...also... Laurin Manning REMAINS the "queen" of the SC Blogs because her Average Per Day is 26,896!

Can anyone else beat that?

Yo Palmetto Repub,

Is that 26,896 per day just to Laurin's site...or is it to the ENTIRE SoapBlox network?

If you're correct (and I don't think you are), then there must be a heckuva lot of bored people out there.

The new Laurinline is a mega letdown...mainly because there's not much Laurin.

anon - not very nice there. come on, try to place nice.

i'd say i feel left out, but with FITS, getting their attention isn't always a good thing.

with my luck, the only attention i'd get from them is their bar tab.

Actually, you're looking at the total numbers for Soapbox sites, not just Laurinline.

Most idiotic blogger endorser.. schotline.com.. for continuously publishing links to Roxanne Walker and Josh Gross' blogs so as seemingly suggesting that they might be the best representatives of South Carolina's two polar opposite political sides.

thanks FITS. This USC Spartanburg undergrad alum is flattered to have received your attention. :-)

While I may not agree with you...ever...that's not true-I don't always disagree--ok, that's a lie...kidding, not really--you are a helluva writer...a helluva writer with obvious enemies, but a helluva writer nonetheless...that said...i appreciate attention from someone i consider a good writer...

I can't help but think it's a ploy though...do you get that a lot?

Thank God you didn't give Laurin Manning an award. It would just add to her ridiculously big ego!
