- Fafblog, surrealistic snark. Ceased being updated a year and a half ago.
- Whisky Bar, mordant, trenchant, informed analysis. Site pulled down abruptly,
but lives on in the Internet Archive, and has an ongoing fan site Moon of Alabama.
- The Poor Man, general mockery of wingnuttery. Seems to have died recently, would normally be managing the Golden Winger awards for 2007. Also lives on in archives.
Fortunately, there is really no shortage of good, biting material on the left -- the Bush administration has spawned a cottage industry. But I still miss the above trio.
TGGP notes a similar phenomenon in his rather different corner of the blogiverse.
