DAVID WISSING IS THE WINNER OF THE “PUNDITEER AWARD”

GIVEN FOR GOOD PUNDITRY !!!!!

Awarded to David Wissing of Hedgehog Report on this day,
February Eight, Two-thousand and seven.

Many of us started out blogging careers on the Howard County Maryland blog site “Hedgehog Report” run by David Wissing. He has had the blog site up for around 4 years now and reached the 100,000th comment mark.

For those of you that have never been on the site, it is a folksy and friendly site that has a fairly good mix of local politics, local and national news, and probably the best national polling data available on any blog. Some of the commentors are experts on polling as well. Political candidates and local elected officials sometimes stop by and it is well known that Maryland state and local elected officials check the site regularly. (there was even a whitehoue.gov visit a time or two)

So be a Hedgehog – go visit David’s site Hedgehog Report and enjoy your visit!

Many of the commentors and probably half of the posters on this site came over from the Hedgehog site. I met Posters McCain, Joe, MDeFl, and Hellbelly there – or rather, they met me – I’m a latecomer – I started blogging there last summer. Commenters lisab and Tina and a few others come from there as well.

Also, I would like to nominate David Wissing for the coveted “Punditeer Award” for his accomplishment! I know the award is usually given to persons active on this site, but since most of us came from the Hedgehog Report, David really is sort of a Right Pundit himself – we can make him an honorary “Punditeer!” I need a vote of the verable Punditeer nominations committee to make it official!

UPDATE: Unanimous vote of committee taken at 4:24pm on this day.

By the way, the 100,000th poster was yours truly! I am honored!
