Brit newspaper The Observer released their list of the world’s 50 most powerful blogs over the weekend.

Except… The “World’s Most Powerful Blogs” are mostly American. Out of the 50 blogs selected, 30 are US-based. Was it selection bias? Confirmation of US dominance of the blog genre? Who the hell knows.

In any case, here’s our short take on The Observer‘s selections:

The Huffington Post ranks higher than Boing Boing which ranks higher than Kottke which ranks higher than Perez Hilton which ranks higher than Talking Points Memo which ranks higher than I Can Has Cheezburger? which ranks higher than Gawker which ranks higher than The Drudge Report (is that even a blog?!) which ranks higher than TMZ which ranks higher than Chez Pim.
