Michael Hussey is a constant blogger on many liberal blogs as well as his own, Pushing Rope. He doesnt break news, but he is influen-tial in keeping progressive thought at the forefront of the statewide and national dialogue. Hes merciless on bloviating politicians, say-nothing pundits and lazy reporters. Hes no less demanding of his fellow bloggers, frequently taking one taxi cab driver/writer to task for xenophobic and misogynistic posts. And his breadth of knowledge and links to good info online is amazing, bouncing from Floridas insurance crisis to Mel Martinezs support for the war to John Tierneys unintentionally comedic writing in what seems like a matter of minutes. pushingrope.blogspot.com.
