Qifa Nabki: In a sense he’s already won the elections, by becoming the go-to blog for comical, pox-on-all-houses analysis.
Mitchell Prothero for The National: The best English-language journalist working in Lebanon today. His second-latest dispatch, on the uneasy alliance between Hizballah and the FPM is representative of his output.
Lebanese Elections 2009: A bit dry, but the information is informative to the max.
Robert Fisk for the Independent: He hates the opposition, and especially Hizballah.
One wonders why the Washington Post hasn’t sent Anthony Shadid to Lebanon? Seems like a natural choice.
Or why the LAT didn’t send Jeffrey Fleishman to write a special report on the frequency with which the Lebanese political classes get manicures? Oh shit! I just learned that Fleishman wrote a novel called “Promised Virgins: A Novel of Jihad.”
