Blogger of the Year

The Week magazine recently picked its Opinion Awards, including Blogger of the Year (BOY.)

The award for 2008 BOY went to Nate Silver, publisher of Silver's claim to fame is that he correctly called the 2008 Presidential Election at 8:46 p.m. ET--an hour and 14 minutes prior to the mainstream media.

Other finalists included:
-, a site devoted to consumer comments. The site eventually was purchased by Consumer Reports, testament to the success of the blog.
-, the blog which first reported Sarah Palin's $150K wardrobe, Barack Obama's visit to Bill Ayers, and John McCain's inability to quantify the number of homes he owned.
-, a site which warned the American public about the impending economic disaster.
-, authored by Dave Weigel, who followed Ron Paul's unsuccessful presidential big.

No word on whether this site is being monitored by The Week for possible award consideration next year...
