The lone big-time national blog we deign to include in the NVTH blogroll has just won Blogger of the Year award at CPAC.
Read about it here, at his own blog where the praise is so effusive it’s positively Athenian.
The blogger Ace of Spades (or, as he affectionately known by the Washington Times’ Inside Politics column, Ace of Spaces) is – despite his legendary Tarantino-esque lifestyle – a genuinely nice, soft-spoken and intelligent guy.
In an undeniable display of cohones, he took the plunge a couple years ago and gave up his day job to become a professional, full-time blogger, which is very, very hard to make work numbers-wise. Now, I don’t know whether he’s drinking single-malt or rail brands these days, but the quality of his commentary and the blog as a whole are in the highest echelon of the blogosphere. It’s a thrice-daily stop for me.
Congratulations, Ace, it could not have gone to a more deserving guy.
UPDATE: My man.
