The Daily Dish by Andrew Sullivan

If the election of Barack Obama truly signals a "post-partisan" America, then Andrew Sullivan should be appointed the country's blogger-in-chief. Sullivan was defying political labels long before it became fashionable. He describes himself as being "of no party or clique," and his blog — reliably conservative on military matters and the role of government, aggressively liberal when it comes to gay marriage and the legalization of soft drugs — is daily proof of his stance. In a blogosphere choking on its own partisan entrees, The Daily Dish is a welcome meal that's good for you.

Sample Daily Dish post: What some on the far right seem not to grasp is that opposition to torture is not about being soft on terrorism. It is about being effective against terrorism.

Entry you'll never see: Is it just me, or do you find something creepy about gays and lesbians being in the military?
