I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Quote of the day

The Quote of the Day comes from Digby.(Note: I can't get the link to work so scroll down to Counting Coup.
It's not about politics and it's not about religion. It's about tribalism. The Republicanism is an "identity" movement in which member's affiliation with the party is more akin to affiliation with clan or family.
That explains why so many people are willing to vote against their own best interests. Sounds a bit like Democracy in Iraq. Digby is writing about a post on Rick Perlstein's article on Mitt Romney. Go read the entire thing.
