Trade blog shares
Now for something completely apolitical, but cool nevertheless, check out BlogShares, the Fantasy Blog Share Market. It's a virtual stock market trading in weblogs. Signing up (it's free) gives you access to $500 pretend dollars with which to trade. Weblog market capitalization is measured by the number of incoming links.
Incidentally, blogshares includes ALL blogs, not just political ones (like the more conventional Blogosphere Ecosystem).
At current market valuations, your $500 could buy 100 shares of Daily Kos stock, or nine shares of Instapundit. If you want TalkLeft, your 500 shares will snag you just 23 shares (giving her the highest market cap of any lefty blogger).
