I rather like pedestrianobservations by Alon Levy, and like his tone, but sometimes his suggestions ignore political reality.

Blueprint America

And to balance it out, New Geography. A lot of it is just the flipside of the grist/Atlantic Cities crap, but like Atlantic Cities/Grist there's good info there to.

I have to post this now...

Top five rappers:

1. Dylan
2. Dylan
3. Dylan
4. Dylan
5. Dylan

But seriously, I wanna take a look at a few of these blogs. The only one I've really looked at with any frequency is AtlanticCities. But I like to get both perspectives, so are there any blogs or websites that make good arguments against urbanism/new urbanism.

Demographia and New Geography and Thoreau Institute come to mind.

Heck, AtlanticCities as well.

There are no good arguments against urbanism/new urbanism.

This guy thinks he has a case. I haven't finished reading it, so I'm not sure how I feel about his argument but it seems pretty structured. I don't think he's promoting suburbanization, but rather he believes that the goals sought after by urbanists will not be achieved by New Urbanism. It's also 15 years old so some of the stuff may be outdated, but he can't be the only guy who thought that New Urbanism may not work.
