No, that is much too expensive.

A fascinating article in the New York Times reveals the shocking truth -- many bloggers are partisans! They pretend to be interested in politics, but then they go out and work for political campaigns! What hypocrites. It's like The National Journal says:
I do think it's interesting that some bloggers made a name for themselves by fighting the establishment and billing themselves as revolutionaries but at the same time are willing to work for campaigns. That, to me, is part of the establishment -- at least in a broad sense.
It's so ironic that now the bloggers have become The Establishment. I guess it's true -- the only cool rebels left are me, Glenn Reynolds, and David Broder. They should remake Easy Rider and we should be the stars! That would be a hoot. Vroom vroom! Motorcycles!

But the really interesting thing that the National Journal shows is just how easy it is for politicians to pay thousands and thousands of dollars to bloggers, and in return the bloggers will give them absolutely free advertising. What a scam, to pay so much money to get something for free. This is one of the dangers of partisanship.

UPDATE: Why are pathetic nonentities like this one always trying to get me to link to them? I absolutely refuse. I think blogfights are so petty.

UPDATE: Giggle! I think a link from a blogger named Glenn should be called a "glink"! How fun! If Glenn Reynolds were named Flenn Freynolds, though, a link from him would be a "flink," and that would be no fun at all. How boring!

UPDATE: Ha! I used "free" on purpose. It was a clever trick and the partisans were fooled yet again.

What about a link from "Charles Pierce"?

I pay for lots of free stuff and I didn't know that made me a partisan! Thanks, Professor. Now I know better.

A motorcycle roaring between your thighs is far too much for me to take.

And if they remade Breakfast Club, would you be Molly Ringwald or Ally Sheedy?

So people who are interested in politics are good, up until the point that they actually have opinions about politics?

And you're like a star or something? Better than the unwashed hoi polloi who are trying to ride on your coattails?

That's all I got. I'm still searching for some actual content in this blog somewhere...
