Hi, there, a quick introduction. I'm Carl, better known at Crooks and Liars as Actor212 (Props to my homies, like TPM). I have a humble little blog called Simply Left Behind, which Mike has been kind enough to link to from time to time, as have many of the guest bloggers in the Round Up. I also co-blog at My Left Wing, Lydia Cornell (yes, the sitcom actress), and The Reaction.

So either I've annoyed people enough or I post some pretty good stuff, because like C&L, I'm a finalist in the 2007 Weblog Awards (votes encouraged...beats a tip jar, eh?).

Mike, you'll be pleased to know, is traipsing around central Europe, enjoying the delicacies of the Czech Republic, including I'm sure, the original Budweiser beer. I hate him!

But enough about me. Let's talk blogs. It's Sunday. And that means, the funnies...

- Looking for an alternative candidate? Frustrated that Al Gore isn't going to declare? Don't want to see Hillary win, but can't find someone who really represents your views? MissCellania has the answer.

- A right-winger wakes up and begins to realize what a miserable failure his life has been. Naturally, he blames liberal Hollywood.

- Are you a Young Republican who supports the invasion of Iraq, but can't lift a rifle and stand a post for all the Cheeto dust on your fingers? Now you can serve your country and not worry about accidental discharge! Except maybe propulsive diarrhea...

- With all these Republicans being outted, when will it stop being cool to be gay? Or a Catholic priest?

- And lest we forget, November Blowvember starts off with a bang on Tuesday, and I don't mean the off-year election, where politicians sneak bond issues and other bizarre little initiatives past an unsuspecting public!

You can nudge me at Actor212 care of yahoo spot com, if you have a story you'd like to share. Or even just a fortune from an African principality that needs expatriating. Really. I could use the mail! I'm so desperately lonely...I call the Butterball turkey hotline in July!

Can you help us out?
