Star Trippers

So a bunch of us NARN guys got invited to meet with the Governor on Tuesday - all the members of the Northern Alliance of Blogs, plus John, Doug and Gary from Kennedy Versus The Machine, and the guys from Patriot Blog.

Nobody, naturally, was more surprised than I was. I've been blogging for (counts in head) 39 months now; I started back when people thought "blog" was something that Nick Coleman had after a bag of chalupas and a couple of double Gilbeys on the rocks. It amazes me, frankly, that this little hobby has developed to this point. Which is not to say that I haven't put in some time; I've written well over a million words in this blog.

So when a bunch of newbies - however much I like their blogs - start grousing about not getting invited to soirees like this, I gotta say; keep your perspective, kids. I can remember when blogging was a lonely hobby, back in the days before we were on the hotline from Karl Rove; back before the money flowed like Garrison Keillor's bile after another Republican win; back before bloggers went everywhere surrounded by hot chicks.

But hang in there, guys, for I say your day will come; sometime when we toast Nick Coleman's next exit from radio.

Which can't be that far away.

You are my must read everyday. You've earned it, mitch. When is 1280 gonna wise up and give you your own show. better yet. How about if 1500 lets you take over Chris Croc's slot. You would be tens times better.

Rick,

You're too kind. AM1280 DID give me a show - me and the guys. For which I'm eternally thankful.

KSTP couldn't afford me. Although it'd be fun if they'd try.

The Strib article on this topic suggested a reason for the snub of KAR and Nihilist..... The bloggers were chosen by recommendations from the Powerline boys - and KAR has this on their site:

"I read you guys before Powerline...Hell, I don't even read Powerline anymore!" Nihilist in Golf Pants

"The Strib article on this topic suggested a reason for the snub of KAR and Nihilist..... The bloggers were chosen by recommendations from the Powerline boys"

That is incorrect.

"I read you guys before Powerline...Hell, I don't even read Powerline anymore!" Nihilist in Golf Pants"

You've tripped into it, Eva! The Great Conservablogger Rift is exposed! Nihilist dissed Powerline!

Quick! Write fifty posts about it!

Really, Eva?

Where did Mark Brunswick's Strib story say that?

For someone who picks over other peoples material so closely, you are really incredibly sloppy and illogical.
