Yes, where are all the smart female bloggers?

Joe Wilson, Digby of Hullabaloo, Rick Perlstein
So it turns out Digby is a woman.
Jason and Warren will be pleased.

Closing off this post with the three words that have for years comprised many entire posts across the blogosphere :

Actually, I've known Digby was a woman for some time, but more to the point...

Where are all the "smart" female bloggers?

I would risk this: Of the millions of blogs out there, when culled down to those who regularly post, particularly on political and social issues, and can be considered thoughtful and "smart", the females outnumber the males when weighed on sheer performance and analysis.

Just my opinion, but on the whole, I see better progressive commentary coming from female bloggers. They approach subjects with more passion and a better line of focus.

I didn't know about Digby, but I do know of a couple of other totally kick ass bloggers out there who don't publicly declare as women.
Can't believe this type of nonsense even still matters, but it obviously does - witness those guys posting about how this must be a hoax and that the woman who accepted the award is probably "just an old college room-mate of the real Digby". LOL.
