Folks, we may have a contender: The Daily Beast

A contender for a news and opinion site that actually has some guts to be ironic and negative. Although my feeling is that they may have copied it from the "Buffalo Beast", started by Matt Taibi, preliminary studies have indicated that the sarcasm is, well, is there and somewhat intelligent. I don't want to go overboard with this, but something ironic and negative is what we need. Huffington Post makes me feel like I should be getting paid by Progressive candidates for blowing them after I read it, and Daily Kos is so inoffensive it edges onto the 'shit rainbows' territory. Atrios has the appeal of a gorilla pounding away on a keyboard, which is all the more funny since Duncan Black has a PhD in economics. Hopefully, the nattering nabobs of negativism will take their place in the blogosphere, somehow.
