My Two Census

"Run by a team of professional political journalists", "is the watchdog blog of the 2010 Census!"

From the About section: "One evening, while perusing Craigslist, Stephen Robert Morse, a savvy young political journalist, noticed that the U.S. Census Bureau sought to hire thousands upon thousands of individuals from sea to shining sea to help the federal government complete its decennial count. Despite his age, Morse already learned that if you give people $13 billion to complete a task, they are likely to spend it without caution — both frivolously and haphazardly.

"As they say, one thing led to another, and was born."

It's glib, informative, occasionally snarky and generally entertaining. My favorite recent link is this Saturday Night Live clip.
