A Political Synchroblog Suggestion

Synchroblogging (or Synchronised Blogging) happens when a cluster of bloggers decide to blog on the same topic on the same day.

Synchroblogging (or Synchronised Blogging) happens when a cluster of bloggers decide to blog on the same topic on the same day. It’s a fascinating magazine-like phenomena and for those who have the stamina to read through all the posts, it can be very enlightening to read so many different opinions on a given subject.

I’m proposing a synchroblog for a date sometime in October. My modest goal is to try and get at least 100 bloggers to take part. I’m also offering to compile the blogposts together in book (probably published on demand via Lulu), which would be released in January 2009.

Here’s the suggested topic – “George W. Bush is the worst U.S. President in history because…”

I believe we have lived through an extraordinary period; one that commentators, historians and ordinary people will discuss and debate for years to come. In fact, I expect that our grandchildren will ask us about it in the kind of “what was it really like” tones that my generation asked our grandparents about the Depression.

It’s pretty clear that we will be living with the consequences of this administration for years to come. Moreover, this Presidency demands a special kind of critique because Christianity has been such a central component of the electoral campaigns, rhetoric and support of the President.

So, I’m asking all the blogging readers of this site to consider taking part. If you want to join, feel free to leave a comment (or email me).
