One of the "most clicked" posts today was titled "Woo-Hoo! I'm # 1!!" It was from a conservative blog called Shot in the Dark who was commenting on being this week's #1 most influential blog on BNN/Minnesota.
Noting that he had been called names by the lefty bloggers, he offered some words of advice to other conservative bloggers which I found amusing and oh-so-true for our part of the blogosphere, too:
(Note to new conservative bloggers: when they call you “ridiculous,” “thin-skinned,” or worse, it’s because they’ve bounced all their intellectual checks, and are digging for rhetorical change under bus seats.)This guy has a sense of humor that weaves throughout his posts ... but I also found his profile of interest because he expressed what many of us say about why we're in the blood sport of politics:
The mission is proceeding according to plan.
... if we forget our history, we might not live to repeat it. My kids and I - they’re why I’m out there doing my little bit to try to change this culture (and Party) for the better, so they have a country worth living in someday. And the flag.Those were thoughts I certainly identified with from Shot in the Dark's Mitch Berg of Minnesota. I'm looking forward to being in his part of the world in five weeks.
