1 Damn. I was betting on the word "loin."

2 MSM Moonbats should never be allowed to remove their tinfoil hats.

3 It could be worse. I've heard that Peter Jennings summons Gump Worsley's ghost when the going gets tough.

4 Courage Dan. Courage.

I think the BLOGS should focus all efforts on removing Kofi from the UN. We could also start an effort to support bills that have us leaving that foul, corrupt, and heinous organization of thugs, hypocrites and evil-doers.

5 News flash! Dan Rather has finally uncovered undeniable proof that Bush used his connections to get out of the Guard. This video shows Bush confessing. Look for it all over the evening news.

6 Yo ACE! Your traffic hasn't plunged precipitously because you've become "nice and respectable" since instapundit blackballed you, its because your stories are becoming as dull as this one. While Freeper reports today that the Iranain options are fast becoming either accepting the Iranian Bomb or going to war (which actually they always were) your latest is Rather seeing dead people? Perhaps we don't understand the blog world (and as you know THE VIRGINS prefer Islamic news) but it seems to us that hard hitting stories on topics that REALLY MATTER would go a long way towards bringing back readership and responses. And you would be performing a valuable service to your country, not a small matter.

7 72 VIRGINS, this is not the forum for telling Ace how/ what to write on his blog.

I believe the authority you are looking for is Bob Dole's cock.

8 No, honestly, I appreciate negative criticism as well. I've been wondering what the heck I can do to improve traffic, and I'll certainly be taking 72virgins' critique under advisement.

The trouble with doing what he suggests is this: There are an awful lot of stories which are important but not particularly bloggable because they're not interesting in terms of blogging. Look, it's a huge story that Iran's going to get the bomb. And I can link to stories about that, but you've probably already read them on Drudge.

What, exactly, can I add to such a story? Do I just say, "You know, we can't let Iran get the bomb, folks" ? I mean, everyone here knows that and agrees with that.

The Ukraine is a difficult one to opine on, too. What can I say about it? The ruling regime is corrupt and stole the election; the opposition party should be allowed to take power. Is there anyone here who needs convincing of this?

I am not, alas, the Belmont Club or Steven den Beste. Those guys are deeper thinkers who can actually put together some serious, thoughtful, gee-why-didn't-I-think-of-that takes on important stories. I'm not so gifted, and I my blogging is restricted to things where I think I can actually add something, however minor and however trivial and comical, to the story.

9 Your job isn't to come up with deep insights. You're forte (pronounced "fort") is the absurd lists and skits. Instead of worrying about Iran's bomb, imagine how the mullahs would act as guests on Sabado Gigante, for example, and write a screenplay about it...

10 Aw crap, that should've been "your forte" not "you're forte." Serves me right for getting grammatically high-and-mighty.
