Happy Birthday, Blog for Democracy!

Well, looky here! BfD is now three years old. Even from my own limited time roaming the blogosphere, I can tell that BfD has been THE virtual lighthouse for Georgia Democrats and Progressives. We're blessed with an abundance of great political blogs and thoughtful bloggers of various orientations in our part of the world. But for me, BfD is the "go to" blog for information and insight into all that encompasses Georgia and Democratic politics.

Even when I disagree with some of their contributors, I always remember that we're still on the same team. And I admire and respect the work that many of them do for our candidates and causes. It seems that sometimes they are criticized more than what's fair (usually when a contrarian whines about some supposed "freedom of speech" guarantee that they're owed when they clearly have a false or negative agenda), and don't get enough credit in general. So just let me say to them "congrats" to all of the people that make that blog what it is. You set a high standard for us all.

Now with the niceties out of the way, there's only one question to ask: Who wants to take the birthday licks? ;-)

I nominate Catherine for the licks. Seriously Button, this means a lot. A thousand thank yous for being such an important part of our virtual community, and for being a force for good in your own right.

No sweat, Mel. And thanks for your kind words.

I would be thrilled to pass the b-day licks to Catherine. She does have that blue-collar, Michigander thing that's sexy in its own way going on.

Add that to the fact that I've recently admitted to a strange attraction to Donna Brazile and I just may have to re-think my sexuality!
