Daily Kos is the Best Blog, period.

At least that’s according to the 2006 Weblog Awards, the world’s largest blog competition, with more than 525,000 votes cast this year. The best blog, not just the best political blog, was deemed to be the blog of the New Politics Institute’s fellow Markos Moulitsas.

Markos is a founding fellow of NPI and has participated in many of our events and gatherings. He is featured off the front page of NPI’s new website, where you can also find a terrific video interview with him where he lays out his take on the blogosphere and its impact on politics.

Congratulations, Markos. Keep up the great work.
