Best Local Blog - 2008
Off the Kuff
Charles Kuffner is one prolific blogger. He posts volumes daily at www.offthekuff.com, which, by the way, is the oldest progressive-politics site in the state. He started in 2002 and has legions of fans and followers. The boy can crunch his numbers, often in mind-boggling detail, on political races from country clerk to U.S. senator. And while he leans left, he also entertains with random play lists, baseball trivia and the occasional photo of his adorable daughters. Best of all, he scours the blogosphere (so we don't have to) and links to anything and everything you need to know in Texas. No wonder Texas Monthly named him one of the 35 People Who Will Shape Our Future.
