Wingnut Welfare Jnr.
Where will the future Ben Domenechs and Ben Shapiros come from? From whence cometh the Young Republicans who haven't yet assaulted their drunk or unconscious acquaintances of both sexes, or at least haven't been caught yet?
They're here, and their waiting for their wingnut welfare checks to arrive.
America's Future Foundation is pleased to announce a nationwide contest for the best conservative or libertarian college blogger. The purpose of the contest is to encourage original liberty-minded blogger journalism on college campuses and to identify young conservative and libertarian talent who wish to pursue careers as journalists and writers.
The contest is open to all graduate and undergraduate bloggers age 25 and younger. The winning blog will be awarded a cash prize of $10,000, and be invited to be a panelist at an AFF Roundtable on higher education in Washington, D.C. Awards will be announced on April 7, 2008.

Entrants will be judged on "[the] blogs on quality of the blogs, the intellectual merit of the posts, and the ability of the blogs to make a meaningful contribution to their college campuses." Blogs demonstrating quality, intellectual merit or the ability to contribute will be disqualified, and the remainder will be judged based on the ability to suck up to the judges.
Judges will also consider "How regularly does the blogger post? How many comments does the blog receive on its posts?" thereby eliminating RobertBluey.com from consideration.
