The Koufax Awards
process is starting! It's an award for lefties, which means that it is open, communitarian, and takes forever. Since this really is a grassroots process, nominations in the various categories will remain open until next week sometime. It's an expensive process, collating and tabulating these nominations and votes. If I had any expendable income, I'd throw some to the volunteers
who've run the Koufax awards these last five years. After all, it was by following the links from Josh Marshall, some time back in 2002, that I discovered what people were really
up to online.
Also, The Poor Man Institute
has begun voting
for its second-annual Kippie Awards (named for Kip Winger), for excellence in bombastic, awful, lunatic, right-wing, public argumentation. Some centrist enablers have been included for diversity. It's a fine collection of "they said what?!" moments from the last year, and it's hard to choose between them.
