White House Dossier Ranked #10 Among U.S. Political Blogs

by Keith Koffler on December 17, 2012, 8:54 pm

As the year comes to a close, I just wanted to thank all of you for the success White House Dossier has had in the two and a half years since I launched it in May of 2010.

According to the leading blog directory – Technorati, which ranks blogs according to their standing and influence – White House Dossier tonight sits at number ten on the list of U.S. political blogs. Others in the top ten include major players like The Huffington Post, CNN Political Ticker, The Blaze and Daily Kos. It’s pretty good company.

It’s of course a cliché when someone says, “I couldn’t have done it without others.” But really, what is a website without its readers? Nothing but an exercise in glorious self-indulgence.

Many of you are extremely loyal, even as you disagree with me from time to time, and many have been with the website almost since the beginning.

So to all of you, the veterans, the new readers, and even those who just check in occasionally, thank you for helping make White House Dossier a success.

My best wishes to all of you during the holiday season. I’m looking forward to spending another great year with you carrying out journalism’s essential mission: Holding government accountable.

Good for you Keith. Well done!

Congrats Keith! Great blog; I read it daily and forward it to lots of friends.

All the best in 2013!

Margaret December 17, 2012 at 9:32 pm

This is AWESOME. It would be dandy if you could get other folks in the press briefing room to hold government accountable, too. Think that’s possible?

The Business December 17, 2012 at 9:34 pm

Thank you for doing what you do.

Celia December 17, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Way to go…………

Keith Koffler 2020. A man with vision.
Great news. I feel even better things to come for you sir.
Thanks for letting us vent.

Jennifer Masse December 17, 2012 at 9:46 pm

Congrats to you! Awesome accomplishment. That is just fantastic!! What a nice Christmas present. So glad I came across WHD on Drudge. Good thing you posted your pix on the blog, as I recognized you in the “crowd” of CPAC 2012.

Langley Spook December 17, 2012 at 9:57 pm

Bravo Zulu!

srdem65 December 17, 2012 at 10:01 pm

Congrats on the honor bestowed. You’re up there with some heavy hitters in the political world, good job.

And thank you , MrKoffler, for giving us some inside glimpses of the inner WhiteHouse that we wouldn’t see anywhere else.
Another thank you to those whose comments on current affairs have been interesting, informative, and sometimes hilariously snarky.

The Business December 17, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Do you rally consider the daily kos to be ‘good company?’ :)

rulierose December 17, 2012 at 10:07 pm

I am kvelling! I feel like I personally discovered you, Keith, so I’m doubly pleased to hear about this honor.

keep up the good work…we need you more than ever now.

Brenda A. December 17, 2012 at 10:13 pm

Well done, Keith! Your blog is a breath of fresh air. I appreciate the honesty here. Thank you for providing a place for us to congregate and have discussions. You’ve attracted some thoughtful readers and I also enjoy reading their comments.

GotFreedom December 17, 2012 at 10:29 pm

HuffPo and Daily Kos. . .I guess they have to make sure all political agendas are represented. . .thanks Keith for always keeping us informed and sharing with us your insightful perspective. . .keep up the great work; we appreciate your efforts! Happy Holidays to you and your family and look forward to many more terrific posts in the New Year.

Kathleen December 17, 2012 at 10:45 pm

So proud to know you! Continued success! My Best to You and Your Family in this Holiday Season. ‘See You’ Next Year. :D

Julie Brueckheimer December 17, 2012 at 10:49 pm

Congratulations. What I like best is your satirical side, and you’re far above those others you mentioned. They’re dullards in comparison.

Otis Driftwood December 17, 2012 at 10:57 pm

Congrats Keith!.. It’s a page I enjoy visiting every day. Looking forward to 2013 and your blogs. Keep up the excellent work. BZ

WVM December 17, 2012 at 11:04 pm


I enjoy reading your site every day.

Mari December 17, 2012 at 11:43 pm

Congratulations – I totally agree except I would have moved you up 9 spots.

Is it true that the Daily Kos is ceasing operations due to their collective heads exploding because they were one spot behind Glenn Beck and his team at The Blaze?

Island Girl December 18, 2012 at 12:23 am

A day without WHD is like a day without sunshine:) big congrats!

qestout December 18, 2012 at 12:56 am

Hey Keith, you’re welcome! (from a long-time reader and occasional poster) You’re great at this :)

Girly1 December 18, 2012 at 1:00 am

You are a national treasure, Keith….congratulations!!! Your unique style of humor/satire is unparalleled – as well as highly informative. WHD is a great start in the morning, along with the wonderful comments from your politically informed readers.. Delicious snark, too!

Thanks for keeping us sane over the past year Keith, and have a wonderful New Year!

proof December 18, 2012 at 2:14 am

Top ten, in only two and a half years? That’s really impressive. That’s the big time, my friend! Congratulations! Keep up the good work!

Swedishlady December 18, 2012 at 3:48 am

Congratulations Keith, so well deserved ! You are of course a great writer but you also have that special, nice personal touch. I had no access to this blog for some time because of some incomprehensible, technical computer thing but Keith helped me with that. What a guy ! Again thank you for that. So, even if many of us are still depressed after the reelection we can at least look forward to having the gloomy news served in this great blog.

Shofar December 18, 2012 at 7:14 am

Congrats my friend! Mom must be so proud! And with the Os still in office, you should be able to be in the top five by this time next year.

The Obamas, the “gift” that keeps on giving. Hmmm, kinda like herpes.

nlynch December 18, 2012 at 7:18 am

Congratulations! You so deserve it.
I stop by here several times a day to get a dose of truth….even though it might be hard to hear.
Keep up the good fight.
God bless you and your family.

MarjoJimbo December 18, 2012 at 7:27 am

Wow! Great news!

Your blog is one of my regular “go to” websites.


RickW December 18, 2012 at 7:31 am

Congrats, Keith! Nice to see the truth recognized for a change!

Happy Holidays to you and yours.

ImNoDhimmi December 18, 2012 at 9:00 am

Congratulations, Keith. Your blog is one of the few I visit every single day, for good reasons – excellent articles, intelligent and polite posters, and your insight into the political machinations in Washington. Thanks for all you do.

AZ Granny December 18, 2012 at 9:16 am

Congratulations, Keith! Thank you for all your hard work!

Susan December 18, 2012 at 9:43 am

Congratulations, Keith. Well deserved recognition of your wit and honesty in reporting. Thank you for giving us a welcoming place to express our opinions on the issues of the day.

JBH December 18, 2012 at 9:49 am

Congratulations Mr. Koffler. I wasn’t sure when you started but I think I found you in your early days and have enjoyed reading your blog daily since then. I often pass your articles on to my friends to help enlighten and educate them.

As a side note, to quote our fearless leader (sarc), “you didn’t build that”! You my friend are a perfect example that contradicts his words.

Chuck Thomas December 18, 2012 at 9:55 am

Fantastic, Keith. Congratulations.

While it would have been interesting to follow this site as it commented on a Romney presidency, we have another 4 (miserable) years to benefit from your careful analysis of the goon we’ve had for the last 4 (miserable) years. Should be interesting.

Moreover the congratulations, THANKS for the work you put into this product.

AFVet December 18, 2012 at 10:42 am

Well done Keith !
Keep up the good work.
The insight you provide us with on Obummer is priceless.

Star December 18, 2012 at 10:53 am

Oh, yes–this is a favorite. Thanks, Keith.

Brenda December 18, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Congratulations Keith.

A Blessed and Prosperous 2013 to you and all fellow posters.

Danceswithtruth December 18, 2012 at 12:56 pm


Since “finding” this sight, it has become a daily stop. I so appreciate your insight and honesty. Kudos to many of the responders here. I have absorbed many delightful posts full of wisdom. I look forward to even more in the days to come.

May your cup runneth over with blessings in 2013.

JMK December 18, 2012 at 1:09 pm

Wow. Pretty damn awesome. But not that surprising seeing how hard you work and how much you truly care. Hope you’re proud, you should be.

cindylu December 18, 2012 at 2:09 pm


SnarkEsq. December 18, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Congratulations on this wonderful, impressive accomplishment, Keith! Although, you’re number ONE in my book!

I so appreciate this site, your honest reporting, the informed opinions of the readers here, and of course, the snark when we need it most.

A healthy, happy New Year to you Keith, and to all the White House Dossier readers!

Ricky'sMom December 18, 2012 at 3:28 pm

I discovered your website about 1-1/2 years ago and know why you are rated in the top ten. Thank you for your hard work, insight, accurate information, and excellent sense of humor (which is even more important now with another four years of Obama ahead of us).

gracepmc December 18, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Well done Keith. Congrats.

dryan December 19, 2012 at 1:45 am

You should be #1!
