Everybody make sure you go by Kevin Drum’s place and cast your vote for the Single Wingnuttiest Right Wing Blog Post of All Time. I believe that Mr. Drum has a point when he says:
But why focus on the all-time worst in the wingnut blogosphere anyway? Isn’t that mean? What’s driving this besides sheer bloody-mindedness?
History, that’s what. A century from now, even the very best blog posts will be long forgotten. Let’s face it: they aren’t that good. But bad blog posts will still be every bit as bad as they were on the day they were spawned. They’ll endure. So really, we’re doing this for the children. And the grandchildren.
It is our patriotic duty. Vote early, vote often.
Good luck. And godspeed.
And make sure you vote for both La MalKKKin’s spastic cheerleader routine and Anodyne Outhouse’s paean to CDS-inspired erotomania, “Let’s Take a Closer Look at Those Breasts”. Both represent epic chasms in the landscapes of taste and talent, and to my thinking are each a sort of nadir in Internet History, if not world history.
I was very disappointed that Andrew Sullivan’s famous excrescence, “The decadent Left in its enclaves on the coasts is not dead — and may well mount a fifth column” was left off the list. (Disqualified because it was a newspaper column, not a blog post, alas!) But the presence of Instapinhead’s “Maybe we should rise above the temptation to point out that claims of a ‘quagmire’ were wrong….Nah.” kind of makes up for that.
Of course, the most seismically stupid post of all time would have to be Hind-rocket’s famous ode to Dubya, Misunderstood Visionary, ““It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius….”.
But I shouldn’t tell you who to vote for. I think you kids are perfectly capable of deciding for yourselves who should wear the laurels in that particular Immortal Pantheon of Teh Stoopid.
