Well bloggers tonight is the final night of voting. Tomorrow we will crown In The Coolest SOB In The Conservative Blogosphere for 2013. It is a prestigious title to hold for a year. One that carries a lot of responsibility. But I have complete confidence that whoever comes out on top will represent us well.

It has been a lot of hard work putting up this little contest. I hope you all had fun.

No it is not perfect, and yes it can be done better. But I do my best to make it fair, and I try to improve it on it each year.

Suggestion are always welcome.

Tomorrow night I will enter the final votes into the spreadsheet and announce the final scores…


About Intellectual Frog Legs:

After consulting with a number of people, I have decided to move Joe Dan into the same handicap ranking as wirecutter. With 3,090 subscribers on his Youtube page, averaging over 5,000 views per video, I just can’t justify putting him in the 200 daily hit blog category.

Next year I will come up a formula to better include video bloggers into the handicap system.


Someone said they were having trouble voting – it is logged by ip address. I cleared the logs, so the last day is going to be interesting…

If you are still having trouble voting try deleting your cache files…


Stilt @ Hope ‘n Change unveils the prizes, and is making a strong showing…

obama, obama jokes, scandal, irs, benghazi, ap, stilton jarlsberg, fast, furious, hope n' change, hope and change

“The first place winner will be sent to Guantanamo Bay with a black bag over his or her head, and the runner-ups will be audited within an inch of their lives until the sun is a cold, dark ember.”


BC: I have had it – this is getting embarrassing. I am going away to sulk, gather allies and to scheme!

And to consult my new consultant…

Voter Fraud Ohio Poll Worker Richardson


Early Lead:

Despite rumors that he is the long lost, more feminine, twin to Janet Napolitano, Joe Dan has jumped to an early lead.

Thanks to a Facebook drive by his loyal fans…


Update: Can’t get much cooler than this.

I asked Pamela if she would be beating up on FurHat this year again in our little contest – this was her reply:

Pamela Geller:

lol. I think it would be cool if some up and comer got it — or a long time blogger who hasn’t gotten the recognition he/she deserves.

Yours in liberty, Pamela Geller Editor, Publisher Atlas Shrugs



Update: I will add late entries as quick as I see them to the poll – and the then handicap sheet at the end of the contest…

Voting Ends Saturday June 8th at midnight CST…

May The Coolest SOB Win 8-) !!

Clarification:  You can vote for every blogger you like one time – after you vote once either for one guy or the sixty four, you are done.

Well unless you go to another IP address and fool the poll  :)

Here are the contestants so far, and the handicaps based on their Alexa Traffic Rank. Don’t forget to clue in your nominees, so that they have a chance of winning…



(SOB = Sweet Old Blogger)

About The Contest

There are thousands of super cool personalities in the conservative blogosphere. This award is not only an attempt to find the coolest, but also to celebrate the rest of them.

When I first started blogging, I sent a tip to Andrew Brietbart on just on a whim. It was before he became so famous by bringing down ACORN, but he still was a big time blogger. I almost fell down when I received a return email. I first thought it was a robo-email until I read it. He thanked me and said that he had already run story, but that he appreciated my effort.

wpid-Andrew-Breitbartposterfinsmi-1.jpgI remember thinking “that is one cool SOB.” He took time out of his busy schedule to answer an email from a nobody blogger who was a stranger to boot.

He is not the only blogger out there that excels in: all around coolness, class, common courtesy, etiquette, selflessness, and genuine respect for the efforts of other conservative bloggers — no matter how minimum.

So in honor of him and other classy SOBS like him, I am kicking off the first annual “Coolest SOB In The Conservative Blogoshpere” award.


Grumpy Elder: “You need some publicity, I found out you were running the contest again this year by accident

I am getting a start on it early because I felt bad because some really great bloggers didn’t get clued in last time until after the contest started.


Some of the changes for 2013 will be an improved simplified handicap system, no ability to nominate yourself,  and the ability to vote multiple times (multiple people).

Plus, I will not be nominating anyone myself this time.

The deadline to nominate someone will be June 1st 2013 at midnight CST.  Voting will began June the 2nd as soon as I can get the poll up.

Voting Will Last One Week



Big Blogs: All sites with a an Alexa Traffic Rank of less than 150,000 will see no increase in the vote count.

Moderately Big Blogs: All Sites with an Alexa Traffic Rank of between 150,000 and 500,000 will see an increase of 25% in the vote count.

Medium Sized Blogs: All Sites with an Alexa Traffic Rank of between 500,000 and 1,000,000 will see an increase of 50% in the vote count.

Smaller Blogs: All Sites with an Alexa Traffic Rank of 1,000,000 or greater will see an increase of 100% in the vote count.


To nominate someone

Leave their name or pseudonym, the name of the site at which they blog, and it’s url address in the comment box below.

(If you want them to have a chance of winning, you will need to clue them in before the voting starts)

Update: To save time and work the legacy of participation rule will apply. Those who have been nominated will remain nominated from now on. 

I will update this thread once a month with the nominee’s information at the bottom in the comment box.

Note: Comments on threads close after 100 days (because of pingback spam) — if you can’t comment, email your nominee to me at


Every nominee will receive a recognition award. I will place them at the bottom of this thread after the results are in.

The 2nd and 3rd place winners will also receive awards, to commemorate them holding the Coolest SOB In The Conservative Blogoshpere’s balls off the hot pavement while he/she accepts theirs.

I’m one of the We HEART IFL FB admins… I can’t speak for Joe Dan or my partner but I can say for myself that even though there were a few hitches, I appreciate the fact that you were quick to respond to my comments (i know they borderlined on harrassment.. lol) I feel your change up in the handicap.. while a little late in the game.. is fair. We’ve been campaigning hard for Joe Dan, and let me just say, he’s sort of at our mercy when it come to campaigning.. we do this all on our own steam.. He couldn’t stop us if he tried. It’s not over yet.. we’re still at it.. but It’s been fun and you can look forward to seeing us again next year. AND May the Best SOB (Joe Dan) WIN.

    Well, now I have the CLICK HERE FOR COOLEST BLOGGER OF 2013 CONTEST link, however It does not go anywhere. No one else uses my outside ip, and I did not vote on your page. This is what’s on ‘legs page:
    Click here to Vote:
    1) Scroll Down
    2) Find Joe Dan's name
    3) Click the box next to his name (not the link)
    4) Scroll a little lower and click submit

    However that does not work either.
    I can't vote.

    If I could I’d vote for everyone because I believe everyone in this contest is a winner. Great conservative minds telling the truth about what in the hell is happening to our beloved country. Mucho Kudos to everybody! :)

  16. Jean Copeland says:

    For the rcord, Joe Dan was (nominated) for a CPAC award but didn’t win. He has been busy building a show by himself and felt honored to be nominated for this award as he was honored to be nominated for the CPAC awaard If you look at his shows, you’ll see he deserves every vote he received and then some.

    • BC says:

      Nothing but love for Joe Dan – I am his biggest fan.

      He does deserve every vote he gets for sure.

      My question is does he deserve tiny tiny blogger status – with his votes being doubled?

      I wonder if his blog hit numbers reflect the size of his impact?

      How do you handicap someone who gets thousands of video views, but only a few blog hits and still give a small time blogger a chance of competing?

      That is why I plan on letting the folks deside what his handicap should be…

      If it comes to that.

    Gina Miller of Renew America –

  18. Something is amiss.. people are saying they can’t vote.

    • These are first time voters saying they can’t vote.. and i noticed none of the votes are going up for anyone.

      • BC says:

        I checked out and the poll is still open… Wirecutter’s vote is going up…

        • It’s been sort of an on going issue, people wanting to vote but saying they can’t vote. I always make sure they haven’t already voted. They tell me they come to the link and there is no place to vote. I tell them to scroll and they still say they don’t see it. Sounds like they are getting directed to the results page instead of the vote page with no option to get to the vote page. So, I’m not sure what the problem is. It’s still happening off and on today. Just thought I’d let ya know.

    • BC says:

      Hmm… how to respond to that?

      I really like naked women, but I also like the ads paying for the band width here. Google AdSense is in the process of auditing this site, which was smut free already.

      It seems there are two policies. One for conservatives and one for anyone else. So they gave me 72 hours to fix a double standard.

      I have spent hours combing the site looking for any way that something here could be twisted as inappropriate – just to jab back at the leftist from Google that is picking on me…

      So I will have to edit your comments as part of that process…

  47. vermontaigne says:

    Lots of worthies here, but “coolest” doesn’t necessarily translate to best, or most insightful, or most amusing, though it certainly doesn’t exclude any of them. I’d have to say of the bloggers I’ve met, the coolest, qua my understanding of cool, is Mike Hendrix from Cold Fury and the excellent Belmont Playboys band. I mean, he’s just cooler than the rest of us, though David Burge is cool, not only because he’s a great blogger, but also because he rebuilds cool cars and hangs out with cool people in cool places, and because his work makes for a strikingly cool contrast with his cool writings. On the other hand, he doesn’t have cool tats. And Ace is pretty cool in an ewok-y self-effacing way, and because it’s cool to have an entourage of funny nerds who are, some of them, very uncool, and because he’s a great blogger and Twitter slagger. And I bet Jeff Goldstein is cool in person, though I’ve never met him. And there are a lot of cool blogger women out there, but not so many with the proven cool of Amusing Bunni or Kathy Seipp, in the face of death, though dying so young was pretty uncool, despite what cool people may say when they’re young and think they’re cool. Not that it’s necessary for any blogger, male or female, to die young to be cool, but to do it with such faith and dignity is very cool. And Kathy Shaidle is also cool, though if I were a woman I might think it cool to look like Dana Loesch, who’s cool enough, but not in my view as cool as Kathy, though Dana’d probably look cooler in a cat suit with a gun—which is cool, I guess, if it’s not done a million times, because that starts to make it not as cool, despite all the tweets you’ll get from guys on the Twitter.

    So, you know, I just picked some people from the list I thought were cool, which is cool, but it’s cool if we disagree, too. And there were some people on the list I knew and I thought to myself, he or she is warm, which is cool, but it’s not the same thing as cool. And if you’re lobbying at your site for votes for this cool contest, that might not really be cool, but it’s cool, man. It’s cool.

  48. OK.. for the record.. there seems to ba a discrepancy and a debate has ensued.. Can a person vote more than once for the same blogger?

  106. I’ve waited a time to see who had their names added here because there are so many worthy of this title. Where are you people – get busy, as Breitbart would say.

    I will nominate Reaganite Republican because he is one pithy and very cool SOB, and Grumpy at Grumpy Opinions because, as Mike Kane says below, he has built in an empire in a very short time and has helped many bloggers along the way.I also nominate Dave Blount at Moonbattery, who is always on top of everything with commentary worthy of the SOB Coolness Factor and Doug Ross who finds the best graphs on our economic mess and has some mighty weighty opinions as well.One more: I nominate I’m a man, I’m 41 because he’s a funny writer (in the best possible way), runs Conservative Blog Central where he promotes other bloggers and has REAL ideas about helping a Republican administration grow the economy and jobs. That’s very cool.There are others I want to name and will along the way if others don’t start chiming in here.

    I’d like to nominate ‘Grumpy’ over at for this year’s competition.  Over the past several years he’s built one heck of a site dedicated to the old, gray, and grumpy everywhere. 

    The thing of it is, the appeal of the site is that it has a little bit of everything for Conservative folks regardless of age, hair color, or particular mood at the time. 

    I’m not sure how he finds, and posts, the volume of Conservative content he delivers.  It’d kill a lesser man.

    You need some publicity, I found out you were running the contest again this year by accident,  I’ll post a short piece today or tomorrow, It’s a good contest, everyone benefits and no one gets hurt.  I was shocked, and honored this year just to get nominated..  I looked at the names and the list and shook my head wondering how the devil I got there–

    I’m not sure if nominating two sites is allowed or not, but two names names came to mind immediately followed by about thirty others over the next two minutes..  

    The first two that came to mind were;

    Maggie at Maggie’s Notebook-  She’s a fantastic researcher and a damned good writer, I visit her regularly, it’s not unusual to find her posting information a couple days ahead of other bloggers, and a week in front of the Old Media..  She seldom rants, but knows how to make her point.. You can find her here

    Bob Mack at “Be Sure You’re Right Then Go Ahead” was the other site.  Bob’s a straight shooter who lays things clearly in the unmistakable style of a Veteran.  Recently Bob has started doing his own artwork instead of just grabbing an image off the net.. He’s come up with some pretty neat stuff, and if you ask him, he’s not opposed to letting other conservative bloggers use his art..

    You can find Bob here

    I could keep going, there are thousands of great conservative sites out there– I look at dozens of them everyday..
