Steve Benen Gets the Recognition He Deserves

The Atlantic named Steve Benen of the Washington Monthly as one of its vaunted 50 "most influential commentators in the nation."

And his acceptance speech is an instant classic:
... I was delighted to see The Atlantic include me in its list of the nation's 50 most influential political commentators. I'm #44 on the list, but using Beck/Malkin/Teabagger math, and aerial photos from 1997, I've decided that I'm actually in the top five.
In this cantina, Steve, you will always be Numero Uno. Congratulations!
