‘Get Crazy With The Cheese Whiz’

Posted on | January 1, 2012 | 21 Comments

by Smitty

Pat in Shreveport sums it up for us: “I Suck”. I blogged from Afghanistan for much of 2011; Stacy’s gonzo efforts continue to this day. Yet we’re still clocking in somewhere between haggis and chopped liver on Director Blue’s roundup.
Last night, reached for comment at ~2300 EST, Stacy allowed he was on the way to crash “The Raucous Before the Caucus,” though he was dubious as to whether or not Tabitha Hale had been invited. At the mention of Director Blue’s post, Stacy recalled a diagram:

Cue the Beck:
I might also mention that I overheard a GPS unit in the background of Stacy’s cel phone, a severe blow to his Luddite cred.
Update: Nice Deb at least noticed us. 🙂

    Losers unite! I too am not listed anywhere for any sort of recognition as being worth a damned thing to anybody.
    BUT – I do have some good news for Stacy, he’s made a very special list over at the Conservatory, and so has Wombat!
    I may not qualify for an award or honorable mention by anybody, but dangit, I CAN do something about the appalling lack of recognition for the best freaking active duty military blogging of 2011 – stay tuned for the upcoming First Annual Zilla Awards! I might even make a nice widget for the winners.

    As someone who has ‘never’ mattered, all I can say is there is value in being part of the TRUE Conservative Counterculture. To ‘matter’ one has to sell their soul to the GOP Establishment anyway.

    Well, damn. Didn’t see that coming. #^_^#
    Guess now that I have my shiny new DSL line at home, I ought to start doing that linkagery thing again. 😉

    Just remember who told you that you made the big time, and consider linking to a certain anti-jihad blogger who hasn’t gotten any stinking awards and has to hound people to get linked!

    I just made my first order from Amazon. Unfortunately, I had major difficulties setting up an account, lots of discussion with the Amazon “Help” people. So you won’t get anything from this.

    But in the future I should be able to do my orders through you guys. Should be worth about a dollar per year for ya. For the record, if you see Vegemite, it’s probably me.

    I’m not sure if Stacy and Pete were insulted or not.  Being a hustler is not always bad…

    If it’s any consolation, the judges inform me that Stacy and Smitty were #51, tied with Pat (of course)… sooo very close!

    In any event, once again the judges saw fit to award me exactly jack squat.

    Happy New Year and let’s kick some ass in 2012!

    Doug, I have been informed that you will be getting an award from a certain blogger who herself isn’t good enough to get awards from anybody but wants to recognize awesomeness in the Dextrosphere anyway.

      I liked your post a lot, and hope the good humor carries through 2012.

    Yeah, Smitty, but it’s a GPS in a car Stacy’s driving.  You don’t often hear a Garmin unit saying, “This is a cornfield… this is a cornfield… that was a cow…”

    But, after you have sold your soul, and you are owned by the establishment, you don’t matter then either. The only people that seem to matter are the fat cats that write the big checks. But, then, they write them to both parties to make sure they have something on both lots.

    Pat Buchanan was right. The two parties are just two wings on the same bird of prey.

    I am sorry, I do not know of this Tabatha person you refer to?

    […] but I made it, baby – by the skin of my teeth, I made it. Many very excellent bloggers who also deserve recognition, didn’t make the list – so I don’t take it for […]

    I don’t see how “Instapundit” qualifies as a “blog portal.”  Links, sure.  But portal?  I haven’t even visited the site more than a few times per quarter in the last three years.  Same with HotAir.  But when you visit Doug’s site, Ace’s, Stacy’s, and others, you end up all over the internet looking at things.

    The blogroll at Stacy’s and at Jim Hoft’s site are loaded with interesting links, too.

    BTW, HotAir is like the disco music of the right-side blogosphere.  There, I said it.   /levin

    Hell, you mean Stacy doesn’t know how to READ a map? The problem with GPS units is the GIGO factor, DAMHIKT.
