Will Bunch: The Politico has achieved some kind of Platonic state of absolute “balance,” where they went out to make sure that exactly one “(liberal blog)” and exactly one “(conservative blog)”, and NOT ONE MORE, were listed. What’s more, on the off chance that a reader might become confused and not realize that the Politico is perfectly balanced, they want to make sure you noticed with those handy tags, “(liberal blog)” and “(conservative blog).” It’s like the presidential speech where they make sure they get the (liberal senator) and the (conservative senator) for reaction.
