Sudsy Wants You to Join the Oregon Commentator

Ten blogs enter; one blog leaves

The Oregon Commentator has been selected as one of the ten finalists in the America’s Future Foundation 2008 College Blogger Contest. Here’s part of the sweet email we got:

Dear college blogger,

Thanks for entering the America’s Future Foundation College Blogger Contest. I’m happy to let you know that you’ve been chosen as one of ten finalists. You are now eligible to compete for the $10,000 grand prize. Contest judges will now regularly monitor your blog through April at which point they’ll announce a winner.

Not bad for a bunch of boozehounds, eh? Here’s the full list of finalists:

The contest will be judged by a group of noted bloggers who you’ve probably ran across if you’re conservative or libertarian and spend any time at all on the internet. Most of them are on our blogroll on the right side of the page, but in the interest of completeness:

Congrats to the other finalists, and thanks to the America’s Future Foundation for putting on the contest. We’ve made some basic plans about what we’ll do with the money if we win, but all I can say at the moment is that it will probably be the kind of event that divides history (i.e. pre and post-“that time the Commentator won 10k”). All fiscal conservatives will be invited.

    Bluey’s a friend, and a few more are acquaintances, so I’ll see what shameless lobbying I can do.

    I once told Goldberg he was fatter than I imagined him (inside joke from his old G-File columns) but he didn’t seem to get my clever inversion of what he claims everyone always told him. A few years later I almost spilled a drink on him. So I think that one may be out.

    Radley is the man!

    Oh, you know who’s not represented? The Princeton Tory! Suck it, fancypants Ivy Leaguers!

    Congrats, guys. The blog looks great, and even if you don’t win, it’s great to gain the recognition of people like Radley Balko and Megan McArdle. (You could probably live a long and prosperous life without Goldberg or Ham’s recognition, though.)

    Good luck, and I hope you beat Dartmouth.

    Will there be lots of exotic beers involved? Or mainly NW Micros?
