MARYROSE LYONS asks me to share info about political commentary sites I read. She sent a direct email because I've locked down comments on this blog in so many ways because bad spam days sometimes mean more than 100 unwanted comments. As far as I know, I haven't blocked any Irish IPs but that's another topic. On political sites, I have several places where I graze. Those places may change since my reading patterns change from month to month.
I listen to Senator Joe O'Toole because he's easy on the ears and a polite critic with considered substance.
I comment regularly and trackback often to Damien Blake's musings.
I read The Daily Kos through my FreeNews client on my phone. It's a river of political news with extremely left-wing US commentary.
The most articulate TD who has offered first-person commentary to me and my students is Deputy John McGuinness in Kilkenny. I cannot fathom why he remains relegated to the back benches. I wish he was involved in Irish social media.
