Off the Kuff is a political blog based in Houston mainly covering state and local affairs.[1] Founded in 2001 by Charles Kuffner, it is the oldest continuously run political blog in the State in Texas,[2] and has gained tremendous support throughout the State for its detailed political reporting and commentating. Posts are predominantly written from a liberal point of view, but are often admired from both sides of the aisle.

Selected works from Off the Kuff have been syndicated in the Houston Chronicle,[3] and the blog has been featured prominently in both the Houston Press[4] and Texas Monthly.[5]

The blog is a key member of the Texas Progressive Alliance, an organization of liberal blogs in the State that include Burnt Orange Report and Texpatriate. Other members of the TPA include Brains and Eggs and SocraticGadfly.[6]
