First, I must announce that our scheduled battle has been rescheduled due to reasons both technical and medical. Cody Hatch and IB Libertarian will battle the week of August 15th, with a different topic.
That means that this week we will be having Blitz Battles as posted by our former Challengers and our Iron Bloggers. Cody may participate in creating Blitz Battles as well, if he wishes. Please remember, no more than one a day per poster.
Also, last week was Rosemary's last battle as Iron Blogger Republican, though she may be returning in the future for a couple featured 'special' battles we have in the works, and she has generously volunteered to Judge if needed. We thank her for her hard work and service she has given this blog. Her shoes will be very big to fill.
But Big Dan, formerly of God In The Machine and now of Popping Culture
has very big feet, and so it is my great pleasure to announce Dan Champion as our new Iron Blogger Republican. May his reign be long and glorious.
He will see his first battle as IB Republican next week, as he takes on big-name Daily Kos regular and Jim Newberry for Congress campaign staffer Sterling Newberry. He'll have to be ready for a hard fought battle as his debut as IBR will be a true trial by fire.
Lastly, we are once again putting out the call for Judges and Challengers, though the latter are more in need. Think you've got what it takes to topple an Iron Blogger? Drop me an email, today!
