Tail that Mocks the Blog

In his article "The Tail That Wags the Blog", Joel Achenbach of the Washington Post smugly boasts about his popularity while making jest of Bloggers:

I'm surprised that bloggers didn't get it. Achenbach conceals his true derision of bloggers behind a camouflage of disingenuously written humor.

A few weeks back, I blogged three paragraphs on Karl Rove. Someone at Google News linked to the blog, and a Rovestorm erupted, a festival of vituperation, with a commensurately outstanding number of page views.

Yes Joel, how difficult can it be when you're a member of the Dan Rather fraternity?

"The continual focus-grouping explains why most bloggers write as though their primary goal is to rise in the Google search results."

Why so smug Joel? Obviously you practice what you preach. At the FISK our "primary goal" is to expose lame schmos like you. And as for yur tail that wags, you know where to stick it.

"And let me just add, purely for the sake of Google: sex, alien abduction, Oprah, Tom Cruise, Lindsay Lohan, jumbo hooters the size of watermelons, Dick Cheney, Mark of the Beast, Armageddon, free money."

But thanks for the tip.

P.S.: You forgot Cindy Sheehan, George Bush, Iraq... Shizer!

They can mock us all they want, but the fact that they take notice speaks volumes.

At first I didn't notice it, but on second look I see you're right.

"Schmo" is being too nice.
