wheels within wheels

The actual tentacles are much slimierHE WHO CONTROLS THE ‘BLOG-O-SPHERE’ CONTROLS THE WORLD, IS WHAT WE HEARD: This bazillion-word story on AOL’s Politics Daily dingus, about the proxy war playing out in Republican primaries nationwide between Jim DeMint and Mitch McConnell, seems “important,” but it’s long and kinda boring, so we’ll just reproduce this hilarious claim from the world’s most handsome CNN commentator/blog impresario: “[Eric] Erickson implied to me — and based on the chronological order of the endorsements, this rings true — that DeMint may be taking his cues from RedState’s endorsements, not the other way around.” Good lord, political bloggers! If they’re not having sexy sex with sexy politician-ladies, they’re ordering powerful Senators to do their bidding. (Fear not, dear readers, Wonkette only uses its blog-power to earn your eternal love and devotion, not to do evil.)

About the author

Josh was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, leaving him with a love of chicken wings and a tendency to say “pop”. He taught ancient Greek and Roman history to undergraduates before fleeing from academia in terror; worked for a failed San Francisco dot-com that neglected to supply him with stock options or an Aeron chair; lived in Berlin, where he mostly ate Indian and Ethiopian food; finished in third place on his sole Jeopardy! appearance (the correct answer was “Golda Meir”); and was named 2007 Blogger of the Year by The Week, for obvious reasons. Josh is the creator/editor of COMICS CURMUDGEON (which you should read) and does geeky editing and writing about geeky things such as "the Java programming industry for JavaWorld." He lives in Baltimore with his wife Amber and his cat Hoagie.
