Blog 5: Political Blogs

Out of all of the political blogs floating around the internet, The Washington Roast is my favorite. For those of you who have never read it, The Washington Roast is a combination of political humor mixed with news. The Roast brings to light political issues and news while also poking fun at politics. In essence,  its style resembles that of Jon Stewart. The site claims to have more of a liberal view, but also admits that it runs conservative stories at times.

This sight has caught my attention for numerous reasons. First and foremost is its humor. All the writers for this blog know how to exert humor when appropriate and refrain at inappropriate times. Some stories are meant to mock politics while others are aimed at clearly being news. The Roast also contains a wide variety of stories.Additionally, I am impressed by the layout of this sight. Stories are categorized according to topic and all information is easy to access.   I am also admire their political cartoon section, it is very entertaining. The Roast definitely gave me some insight on how to write an excellent blog.

The Washington Roast is a great resource for news and political humor. Check it out!
