The Reading List

Some people would call this page the “Blog Roll”, I call this the “Reading List”; which is the place where I highlight what I read.

Blogs:

  • The Daily Kos – My favorite website and my current homepage.  Probably the best website for progressive politics.  Updates frequently, plenty of awesome sections/writers and great input from contributors.  I somewhat model this site off dKos.  
  • FiveThirtyEight – Nate Silver’s polling/stats website is a must-read for any political junkie who is more interested in how things affect the numbers as opposed to pure policy-related activity.  
  • Ezra Klein’s WonkBlog – Easy to read charts on not-so-easy to understand topics.  Ezra Klein does an amazing job at Wonk Blog and if you haven’t read the MSNBC contributor’s site before, now is the perfect time to start.
  • Crooks & Liars – I am forever grateful for C&L for linking my blog and being the sole reason that I had the most hits our site had in one day.  A great place for progressives to hang out.

Books:

  • Nixonland – by Rick Perlstein
  • Twilight Of The Elites – by Chris Hayes
  • Our Divided Political Heart – by EJ Dionne
  • Drift – by Rachel Maddow
  • RFK: His Life – by Evan Thomas
