Yesterday, we alerted our Twitter followers and Facebook fans about The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza’s search for the best state based political blogs.  We got snubbed in 2009. Sniff. Sniff. Determined to make it this time, we asked you our beloved readers to chime in and recommend us.

Boy did you!

Checking in on the comments at The Fix we were pleasantly surprised to see some great endorsements of our work over the past year or so. We love you back. 😉

We did hop in and toot our own horn a bit, but many of you did as well. Here are some of our favorites:

“Plunderbund – – their work is picked up by national news all the time” – jillzimon

“I highly recommend for keeping track of all the craziness that has been going on in Ohio. They’ve been able to get inside information and break stories even before the major newspapers. A definite must read for any Ohioan who wants to keep up with what’s going on in Columbus and how it affects you!” – mjrodgers

“No doubt in Ohio Plunderbund ( The peeps at Plunderbund use facts (gasp!) with a side of snark. They’re so good “legit” news sources such as MSNBC and the Cleveland Plain Dealer are going to them for scoops and ideas for stories. ” – buckeyekelly

“For the great state of Ohio, Plunderbund is the best source for news about state politics – they rock!” – Ohio-Papa

“In Ohio, Plunderbund is my blog of choice!” – lsheehe

“Plunderbund is easily the best OH political blog.” – klk2416

“I am a political junkie from Ohio and is THE must-read blog in my state.” – LET1277

“It is Plunderbund in Ohio hands down!” – msdjcurry

“Ohio Political Blog Real, truthful, accurate information on what is actually going on at the state capital.” – ds4825

“Plunderbund. Ohio. Trust me. ” – Afropolitan

You like us. You really like us! 😉

    This is the best; no question about it. I discovered this site in January while googling information on the people being picked for Kasich’s cabinet. I come to this site every day. Keep up the wonderful, soooo important work you are doing!

  • Thanks for the kind words and more importantly for visiting the site every day! 😉

  • While in the criticism/comment mode, how ’bout a Google+ button for sharing. I know it’s not yet taken off, but it’s the next big thing. Foh real.

    Oh yeah, and you guys are awesome.

    I’ve been reading this blog faithfully for months and you’ve become my #1 source for what’s really happening in this state.  I live in Columbus and the Dispatch is a complete joke – I seriously do think you are responsible for a significant drop in the number of their subscribers which they completely deserve.  Thanks for staying so vigilant about what is really happening in our state – I’ve lived in Ohio my entire life and I don’t think I’ve ever been so disgusted about the actions of  our elected officials.

    I think I would have lost my mind the past 8 months if not for Plunderbund.  You do the research, I help with the evangelizing.  It so great to be able to rely on you guys for the facts and comparisons.  You do more than regurgitate facts; you point out the dirty relationships, campaign donations,  conflicts of interest, and possible scenarios of those in charge of our daily lives.  Thanks for all you do.

  •  Weird! I left a mazel tov here this morning – sorry it didn’t show up but hey, I’ll congratulate you all twice and re-state that I like knowing that I “knew you when.”  Enjoy fellas. 🙂

  • Thanks,  I love you guys. You are so awesome.

  • I’ve been following this site since December and I’m loving it. Reminds me of Talking Points Memo in it’s startup years. I hope you all have the same success as Josh and company.
