That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

The Naties

with 4 comments

As the end of the year approaches, everybody wants to celebrate excellence. Whether it is Man of the Year contests or Top 10 Movie Lists, it seems that everybody is celebrating excellence in one thing or another.  I intend to do the same thing, except I will be celebrating excellence in me.  The Naties (pronounced Nate-tease) are a recognition of what makes this blog so truly special.  It will serve to highlight old articles and celebrate the truly great from the merely great. The technical Natie awards were given earlier today in a separate ceremony.

The first Natie is going to be the Investigative Natie.  To be eligible for this award, the article in question must be original content from me.  It can either be a report of something I am doing or an investigative piece with an actual interview.  The nominees are:

  1. Is McCain Poised for an Illinois Upset?
  2. The Obama Ad that the Networks Won’t Play
  3. We Have a Book Deal
  4. Tom the Bartender on Politics
  5. A Tale of Two Employees
  6. Obama Hates Puppies

This year’s Natie goes to The Obama Ad that the Networks Won’t Play for its gripping look at the attempts of the mainstream media to supress any voice that is critical of Barrack Obama.

  1. Aw, I wish you could let us vote for which article should win the Naties award.

    Will there be a ceremony for the Haties? (Whacky liberal posts that Nate hates?) I think that would be a great idea for an awards ceremony.

  2. I just didn’t think there was enough time for everybody to vote in a timely fashion, but I think there will be a reader’s choice vote.

  3. I hope there is going to be an award for the best commentator.

  4. […] a comment » Wow!  I can scarcely contain myself.  Even though we took home over 2 dozen Natie Awards for blogging excellence this year, this is my proudest day since the dark days of early November.  […]
