I don't mean to leave anybody out here (although it's gonna happen) but part of my not-so-short list of good commentators includes pj, detritus who can do a good kurt impersonation when warmed up, narcoleptish and Galoot for common sense, rrnate who cuts through bs and can be very funny, DCB who comes up with good links, rabble who sometimes backs me up quite helpfully, and numerous others I will think of as soon as I hit send.
I won't leave out Arturo and Stella_Guru who bring in alternative viewpoints that aren't rehashed talk radio, just to show it can be done.
Speaking of comments, check out the Cap Times editorial tonight on Robin Vos, who's shaping up to be a truly execrable legislator:

CT is starting to get readable comments too. It's encouraging to see thoughtful remarks replacing the mouth-breathers at Madison newspapers, which was pretty much deluged with stupidity for a while. Here's a sample. Nobody's said much about this angle, but one reader caught it:
Where the hell is Van Hollen in all of this. Why isn't his office investigating these actions by Republican legislators. He is supposed to be the Attorney General for all of the people in the state of Wisconsin. He is not part of Walker's cabinet. He was elected on his own. He is supposed to represent us all. He should be the next person recalled. I am even more upset as his lack of action than I am at Walker....
(from link above -- probably belongs in another topic, but I'm talking about comment quality here and this is a good comment)
