The Week Names Captain's Quarters' Ed Morrissey "Blogger of the Year"

My good friend Ed Morrissey received due recognition last night here in the nation's capital by being named Blogger of the Year by The Week magazine. He succeeds the Powerline crew who received the same award last year.

I say "due recognition" because Ed accomplished what no other blogger has - he disclosed information that was kept out of the Canadian media by court order and in the process brought down the Liberal government.

But that's far from all Ed has done to deserve recognition. His posts on every major issue on the public policy agenda are articulate, factual and often devastatingly well-argued. Believe me, you don't want to take this guy on unless you have an absolutely air-tight, prima facie case. And even then my betting money would be on the Captain.

Other finalists for the annual award were John Avarosis, Michelle Malkin, Brendan Loy and Arrianna Huffington.

Congratulations, Ed, the award is well-deserved. It was my honor and pleasure to be invited to attend the awards dinner and to join the assembled notables from the MSM, the Blogosphere and the Washington political scene in applauding you.
