    A special thank you

    A special thank you

    Drudge and LI have something in common.  August 2012 was our best month ever in terms of traffic.  LI had 1,449,541 page views, Drudge had 943,281,513.

    Of course, I didn’t build it on my own, nobody does.  I was helped by the very generous linkage of Prof. Glenn Reynolds, Power Line, Hot Air, Ace and many other bloggers.

    And by great posting by Anne and Bryan.  Anne’s video of the Chick-fil-A protests has over 200,000 views on YouTube, and introduced a lot of new people to LI.

    Branco’s cartoons have added a great new dimension to LI, and College Insurrection hopefully will expand the demographics of the Insurrection.

    I also need to thank Elizabeth Warren, who almost daily provides fodder for exposing the hypocrisy and deviousness of your modern Democratic Party.

    And to His Majesty, Barack Obama, whose arrogance and dismissiveness is like warm soup to a freezing blogger on a cold winter’s day (okay, not the best analogy, but I’m on a roll).

    And to all the race card players, who prove that there is a thin line between insanity and genius, and who never cross the line into genius, thus keeping the Saturday Night Card Game going.

    Special thanks go out to the readers.  Someone somewhere built this, waiting for you to come.  From bumper stickers to photos to Tips to comments, you keep this blog alive.

    [insert obligatory thanks to the wife here]

    But most of all, I wish to thank the government.  Without roads and bridges, I could not get to the house in whose basement I sit, pajama-clad, secure in the knowledge that the police the rest of you paid for will protect me from marauding bands.

    Quite an achievement.

    Hopefully it will do to leftist indoctrination in legal eduction what Clint Eastwood did the fraud of ‘Barack Obama.’

    Congratulation, Wm! Another guy sitting in his basement, in his jammies, building a great site. This Flying Dog Ale’s for you!

    Congratulations, but your success is well deserved. This is how the free market works. Produce something good, don’t overprice it, and the world will come to you.

    Interesting thing about Drudge, especially since we were also discussing the old media in the post above. Drudge wasn’t very well known at all until Newsweek refused to run the scoop their reporter Michael Isikoff had obtained on a major scandal. Isikoff or someone close to him leaked the story to Drudge, who ran with it, and his career track took off.

    It was the Monica Lewinsky affair. By trying to suppress the news to protect Clinton, Newsweek inadvertently boosted one of the major online news sites that would not play by the old media rules.

    Funny how things work out, isn’t it? Continued success and good luck to you & LI.

    Don”t get cocky.

    Keep up the heat.

    And uphold our individual speech by keeping DISQUS out.
