Who says there
are no lefty blogs? Max Sawicky, an economist at the the Economic Policy Institute, a respected labor-liberal DC think-tank, has just opened the doors of his own blog
(god, I hate that word!). I remember back in his Crossfire
days, or I guess when he was leaving Crossfire
, Mike Kinsley said that he'd always felt a little bad being the 'from the left' voice, since he really wasn't from the left at all. Since I'm sometimes labeled as the 'liberal' or 'left' blog in contrast to Kausfiles or Andrew Sullivan's site, I sometimes have a similar feeling. Anyway, if you want your economics left, and I do mean left, then definitely check out MaxSpeaks.org
PS. Lotsa Israel stuff too. And no, he's not down with AIPAC.
