Looking for Politics on "Science And Politics"?


[Note: moved to top for the readers coming over from Wampum blog - the Koufax nominations]

I have just realized I have not written a substantive political/analytical post in weeks!

People who come here and look down the front page will wonder why they were pointed here in the first place - whoever is recommending this blog as a cool Lefty political blog must be nuts!

And my Categories are at least two (now almost four months out of date) months out of date - automating categories is one function I wish Blogger would implement next!

Well, holidays, real life, laziness...whatever...no excuses!

Anyway, some people come here for the cool links, community building, personal posts, blogging about blogging, science links, blog carnivals, or whatever. But political analysis is what got this blog its first regular readers who told the others who told the others....So, to help the new visitors navigate, here is a sampling of what I think are some of my best political posts:
