Jon Swift's annual best-Of round-up is out.
Each year, the talented and generous Mr Swift loosens his satirical robes - just a little - to highlight the best of the progressive blogosphere, as chosen by bloggers ourselves. The post represents a huge effort, and reflects the best spirit of blogosphere. Treat yourself to some good solid time there.
Last year, I asked for your help in choosing my best post, but this year I forgot all about it until the deadline, then had no time to consult with you.
But no matter, I can ask your opinions retroactively. Which of these would you vote for as wmtc's Best Post of 2008?
(a) January 18: on liberals, conservatives, good blogosphere citizens and free speech
(b) January 28: moral illogic: supporting peace, but not war resistance
(c) February 21: on raising consciousness and wanting a new cell phone
(d) March 18: why i won't watch the beijing olympics
(e) July 3: either margaret wente needs a fact-checker or the entire united states is a backwater
(f) A four-part series that I'm counting as one post:
September 4: keep canada canada, part 1: arts funding
September 5: keep canada canada, part 2: thank you, tommy douglas
September 9: keep canada canada, part 3: campaign on issues
September 13: keep canada canada, part 4: let them stay
(g) November 17: involuntary military service is a form of slavery
(h) Write-in vote. Like this one?

I could use a very slow weekend at work to make a best-of widget on my sidebar, one for each year I've been blogging. I think that would be more useful than the category index. I have to wonder if that index really serves any purpose, although I can't seem to stop categorizing my posts or take the index off the blog.
The sidebar seems too crowded for both the categories and a best-of by year.
Anyway, please vote in comments!
