The Nation Approves Sb

i-9ac02f7e00db94626388ea34a393c223-Nation-approved.jpgScienceBlogs.com, including Aard, has received left-wing newspaper The Nation’s seal of approval and been listed as one of its recommended web sites in a book that’s just out. To my Swedish readers, this isn’t likely to mean much, as left-wing US politics is what our conservatives advocate: such as when Prime Minister Reinfeldt endorsed Barack Obama. To US readers, however, this underlines the fact that most of us at Sb are screaming pinko dirty commie hippies. And gay-loving potheads. The rightwingedmost among us, like Orac of Respectful Insolence, are in fact centrists in the US perspective.

Anyway, being a Swede with pretty standard Swedish opinions, I’m very pleased to have been honoured by the The Nation, and not for instance by Fox News. That would really have made me worried. So, welcome on board, Dear Readers of The Nation!

  1. “The rightwingedmost among us, like Orac of Respectful Insolence, are in fact centrists in the US perspective.” What about Razib Khan? He always struck me as a bona fide wingnut.

  2. Being a bit of a biological determinist when it comes to human population genetics, Razib can seem really right-wing. But IIRC he clustered with Orac when we all did a political compass thingy. That is, he’s really a US centrist too.
