How can i sort my blogentry's by date?

Tried things like this, but its not working for me:

 SiteTree::$default_sort = 'IF("SiteTree"."ClassName" = \'BlogEntry\', LOWER("SiteTree"."DESC"), "SiteTree"."Sort")';
 SiteTree::$default_sort = 'IF("SiteTree"."ClassName" = \'BlogEntry\', LOWER("SiteTree"."Created"), "SiteTree"."Sort")';
 SiteTree::$default_sort = 'IF("SiteTree"."ClassName" = \'BlogEntry\', LOWER("SiteTree"."Created"), "SiteTree"."Created")';

The search form didn't give me much help.

Late answer, but maybe someone else needs this - I found this solution:

SiteTree::$default_sort = 'IF("SiteTree"."ClassName" = \'BlogEntry\', NOW() - "SiteTree"."Created", "SiteTree"."Sort")';
