John Hawkins of Right Wing News polled right-of-center bloggers for the most respected current figures on the right. I was one of those polled; surf over to Right Wing News for the cumulative results.
I'm not entirely happy with my submission, which was written hurriedly--I inexplicably omitted Clarance Thomas, among others. Nonetheless, my (unranked) list was: Glenn Reynolds (a/k/a Instapundit), Jonah Goldberg (NRO), James Taranto (WSJ), Jon Kyl (Senator, Arizona), Charles Krauthammer (WaPo), John Roberts (Chief Justice of the United States), Tom Coburn (Senator, Oklahoma), Rush Limbaugh (talk show host), John Cornyn (Senator, Texas) and Bobby Jindal (Governor, Louisiana).
Comments on my omissions encouraged. And compare the totals listed at Right Wing News.
