Great Moments in Blogging History

The blogospheric debut of Ohio University senior Jesse Hathaway seems auspicious:

On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being “I Shall Name My First-Born Son After You” and 1 being “You Are Dead To Me,” the current governor, Ted Strickland, ranks somewhere around a -2. I supported Blackwell back in 2006, but when Strickland won the race, I gave a resounding “meh”.

Thou art the Ohio Snark King, sir! A gut hunch tells me you stole the format of that joke from Ace of Spades, but if so, you’ve done well with the purloined merchandise.

Don’t sweat it, kid. I’ve stolen lots of stuff from Ace, and he’s not the only victim of my online shoplifting spree. Every time a Republican gets caught in a scandal, I seize the excuse to recycle Ann Coulter’s “Mary Jo Kopechne could not be reached for comment” without even a twinge of conscience, and Miss Coulter has yet to complain.

Now, take some advice from Mr. Million Hits:

  • Add Little Miss Attila to your blogroll, pronto;
  • Install on your blog both SiteMeter and Technorati; and
  • Start looking for excuses to link me.

Further instructions will follow. E-mail Smitty the next time you post something, which had damn well better be today, and something about Waxman-Markey would be appreciated.

I like you, kid, but don’t give me an excuse to come over there and start punk-smacking you around like Conor Friedersdorf. I got ties older than you, understand?
