A hearty Plain Blog Mazel Tov to John Sides and the Monkey Cage, named "Blogger of the Year" by The Week. Certainly well deserved; John and the rest of the gang are terrific. Excellent!
Outside of what a terrific job John does, and the rest of the regulars there do, in their regular blogging, I do want to note what a great job they've done at basically single-handedly raising the public profile of political science -- by soliciting guest posts, by linking generously to the rest of us, and most of all by setting an example that this is something that can really be done.
Again, congratulations on a well-deserved honor. Well done!
