We've been at this game for a while now. The site started as a venting platform for me directly after the election of Teh One. My wife actually recommended that I create a political blog, "it's not healthy to yell at the tv every night," she said famously in early 2009. I started out excerpting (just in italics, of course) news articles that caught my eye; there wasn't much commentary on my part involved.
But, once I got a taste of writing more and got my writing voice back (I hadn't written much for over 10 years), I really started to enjoy it...then I met Sam Foster and a lot of the good people that still come and go here and now contribute awesome material. Proof, RightKlik, Les, Wes, Chris, Sam, Mike and Frank: you guys are awesome and I continue to learn so much from you.
Needless to say, rest is history, waxing and waning, through a time in this country's history that I never envisioned we would experience (not in a good way)...
We're not posting traffic for vanity's sake, it's just that we think it is so cool that blogs like this can shatter the stranglehold that the inept, corrupt, incompetent, partisan, leftist press has had on the nation since there was such thing as a press.
Also, it's incredibly fitting that the chart above of the six-figure traffic surge resulting from the death of Osama bin Laden takes the shape of a middle finger. Fitting, indeed.
And thanks for reading...
Updated: American Power links, thanks! Also, the inimitable Robert Stacy McCain notices, too, reluctantly tweeting his (now) out-google-bombed status:
