This Is Not a Scandal!

Posted on | September 23, 2010 | 13 Comments

Newsreal contributor Susannah Fleetwood attended BlogCon, where she was kind enough to pose with  sidekick Smitty:

Earlier today, Smitty highlighted Mrs. Fleetwood’s latest column and, in an e-mail thanking us for the linkage, she mentioned remembering that someone had taken a photo like this. However, concerned that perhaps Frau Smith might share Mrs. Other McCain’s (unjustified) suspicion that BlogCon was a crazed saturnalia of New Media debauchery, I had previously refrained from publishing this picture.

That is a lanyard around Susannah’s neck, not Mardi Gras beads.

Besides, Smitty and I have our excuse ready: Blame Tabitha Hale.

Or maybe Da Tech Guy.

Is it our fault that the fedoras are irresistible?

    The lonely conservative definitely has that “radiant reflection beauty” all around her -A gentlemanly fedora hat tip. But don’t ever mess with mama grizzly, lest you be like that smug look Smitty, livid with shock & bruise.
