The Revealer asks the musical question, "What if Hitler Was a Blogger?"
What if you had a "best blog contest" and Hitler won?

Neo-Nazis will have to stick to wishful thinking and settle for second best: hate-spewing anti-Muslim blog Little Green Footballs won Washington Post's reader poll for "best international blog" with bon mots about Palestinians and other Muslims such as "I've been fond of transfer of these subhuman[s] for a while. Perhaps something more like targeted genocide... will become necessary" and "How can these vermin have a country? How can these vermin be allowed to live?"

It's a truism by now that liberals sling around Hitler accusations too loosely, but LGF quacks like a Nazi duck. Its win in the poll proves only that there was a campaign on its behalf, as there surely was for the all the "liberal" blogs to the left of Goebbels. But the fact is that LGF is one of the most popular blogs on the web, one of the most popular conservative blogs, and stands unrepudiated by most other conservative bloggers.

This is a big religion story, and it's a big political story, but it goes mostly unreported on the grounds that it's best to ignore raving wingnuts. That's fine -- until the wingnuts have gathered so many supporters that respectable conservatives are afraid to stand up to them.
I nominated Archpundit in the WP blog poll -- Let's hope my candidates do better on November 2.
