Teaching Advice?

Forgive the cliche, but I am entering unchartered waters with my Public Writing class. I am starting a section entitled "Joining the Public Forum" wherein students will participate in political blogs, online videos (such as youtube), the writing of letters to the editor, and/or participating in the writing of political literature (essays or poetry) in some way.

Do any of my teacherly friends or otherwise savvy people have any suggestions of blogs, videos, political essays, etc ... that I could incorporate in the classroom toward the goal of familiarizing students with the craft and purpose of public writing in a political context?

Thanks, friends.
