Political Links

I am increasingly getting my news through blogs where an intelligent media observer places the day's news stories in a larger political and social context. Most of these blogs have links to stories from various newspapers or other sources. I like web sites which have trenchant political and social commentary as well as multiple links. Also, I try to read everything by Michael Lewis, author of Moneyball, and Michael Kinsley.
