A Nerd's Envy

Just a few days ago, I tried to organize this blog's links. I came up with some pretty lame, if mildly useful classifications. I just wish I could have been as clever as Oxblog, which based his system on historical figures. Here are some examples of the categories Oxblog set up:

Alexis de Tocqueville: Everyone in this group is a keen observer of American politics and society.

Theodore Roosevelt: Moderate on domestic policy, hawkish (and generally knowledgeable about military matters) on foreign policy.

Calvin Coolidge: Because Coolidge is just funny. And so are the people in this list.

Winston Churchill: Hawkish Brits. Or former Brits. Or soon-to-be-Brits.

Franklin Roosevelt: Liberals and Democratic stalwarts.

David Ben Gurion: Blogs primarily focusing on Israel.

Friedrich Hayek: Libertarians. (For more on Hayek, see here.)

Ronald Reagan: Conservatives and GOP-stalwarts.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan: Thoughtful, scholarly, and well-liked and -respected on both sides of the aisle.
