Which ‘Conservative’ Blogger Is Being Read by the President?

From the Washington Post:

Obama is the first truly wired president, the first to have Internet access at his desk and to converse regularly via e-mail. This fingertip access sends him “constantly” online, said one senior adviser, and the information he finds there influences his thinking and some of his deliberations. He also “uses the Internet like a normal adult,” said another aide, “reading news articles, checking sports scores.”

As for what Obama reads online, his advisers said he looks for offbeat blogs and news stories, tracking down firsthand reporting and seeking out writers with opinions about his policies. Obama was particularly interested in Atlantic Online’s Andrew Sullivan’s tweeting of the Iranian elections last year, said an aide, who requested anonymity to discuss what influences the president.

I wonder where President Obama stands on the birth status of Trig?
