3QD Politics Prize 2009 Finalists

Politis finalist Hello,

The editors of 3QD have made their decision. The twenty semifinalists have been winnowed down to six. Thanks again to all the participants.

Once again, Carla Goller has provided a “trophy” logo that our finalists may choose to display on their own blogs. And if you like our site, please do add us to your blogroll!

So, here it is, the final list that I am sending to Mr. Tariq Ali, who will select the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize winners: (in alphabetical order by blog name here)

  1. 3 Quarks Daily: Embers from my Neighbor’s House
  2. Black Agenda Report: The Great Black Hajj of 2009
  3. Glenn Greenwald: Greg Craig and Obama's worsening civil liberties record
  4. Justin E. H. Smith: On Criticizing Israel
  5. News From the Zona: Republican Virtue and Equality
  6. Wisdom of the West: Blunderbuss

We'll announce the three winners on December 21, 2009.

Good luck!


P.S. The editors of 3QD will not be making any comments on our deliberations, or the process by which we made our decision, other than to simply say that we picked what we thought were the best posts out of the semifinalists.
