Google Search of the Day
— Ace

What'll it be today? Bikini pictures? Fake pregnancy? Secret Jew? Nazi sympathizer?

(Secret-Jew Nazi sympathizer?)

Eh, why not just crazy insane?

This Palin thing is crazy on a lot of levels. The sheer level of hatred directed at this bright, sweet, talented woman by the left is almost unprecedented.

And the right's embrace of her, and interest in her, is almost as remarkable. I liked her from the day I heard her speak. Would have joined the "Draft Palin" bandwagon if I had any idea at all it was even possible.

How big is Palinmania? It's a phenomenon. I don't know how widespread this is, but if you ask bloggers, I suspect they'll tell you (on both right and left, and jackoffs who pretend to be "moderate" but are on the left like "Moderate Voice") that internet traffic is not merely record-breaking, it's record-shattering.

This kinda-disposable vid of Palin talking about the governor's mansion and her jogging routine will I suspect, get crushed with traffic. Why? I don't know. But I'll tell you what -- I watched it for no particularly good reason. I knew the one bit of "news" in it (the Israeli flag thing, which I'd already linked at David Ross' site) but I didn't care. Watched it anyway, knowing it would be news-free.

Biggest traffic day of this site's history? Friday. Ninety thousand plus uniques. Previous record? Somewhere around 55,000, during the Fautography feeding frenzy; maybe I hit that level a couple of other times.

Biggest traffic weekend in this site's history? This Labor Day three-day weekend. Three day holiday weekends are always bad for traffic.

This weekend I'm breaking previous records on weekend days, except for Friday's new record. I think Saturday was almost seventy thousand, and yesterday was sixty-three thousand. Typical good weekend day: 20 or 22 thousand. Frequently less.

Typical good numbers for hits in an hour during a weekday? 3,500. It's what I'm usually hoping for (and very often disappointed to not get; a lot of times traffic clocks in a 2600 per hour even during peak hours).

Now, on a weekend? I'm disappointed when the hourly hits fall below 6000.

I've been doing this for four and a half years now (going on five, I think). I've just never seen anything like this, ever.

To say the base (and the opposition) is "energized" is like saying Power Glutes Andy is "rather fond" of milky loads.

3 I can't get enough Palin. It is like link crack. I was supposed to be reading my library books, not surfing like a fiend. I am pretty pissed off at the left, and I can't wait to vote for McCain/Palin.
Can not wait!

I guess you binge when you have gone without hope for an actual conservative candidate that wants to fight corruption to come along on a Presidential ticket.

Exciting.

4 What do you expect from a bunch of loony unhinged libtards on the brink of dealing with 12 more years of a Republican in the whitehouse, 8 of which will be the first female president. 

Their heads will explode.  They better use the duct tape they saved for chipmunks and wrap their heads.

6 I am totally fired up by this...I contributed to the McCain/Palin campaign (I was going to hold me nose and vote for McC but I wasn't going to fork over my money to him).  I feel a lot better because of this nomination and now I want to support it at least with some money, if not some time as well.

7 Oh, the NRO folks seems to have heeded our advice about getting on board. There are now multiple laudatory Palin articles linked from their frontpage.

The right flank seems to be nailed down, along with at least some of the country-clubbers...time to get the libertarians back on board and we're on our way to rebuilding the Reagan coalition once again.

I think that Sarah Palin represents a politician that we all sort of idealized as young Reaganites.From the frontier, grounded, authentic (warts and all) inherently conservative, but not a prude.

I've known people men and women like her and they are just the type of antidote to what has passed for leadership in this country- snobbish, condesending egomaniacs (BO).

It's like she has stepped out of a time machine when this country was made of rugged individualism.

9 Ace -

Don't fool yourself - you're doing a lot to contribute to the increased traffic by putting up LOTS of LENGTHY posts.  I tell ya, those posts where you collect some of the choicer insanity from the Nutroots are delicious morsels indeed.  And Sullivan-bashing is always enjoyable fun, even when you use the wrong words and rhetorical tropes.  (I stand by my belief that your arguments would be even MORE effective without them.)

But yeah...big news + lots of posts + lots of bile and filth being slung at our candidate = big traffic.

12 My wife thinks Palinmania will die down just as Obamania has. To a certain extent, she's right. But there's a huge difference between the two. Obama is a phoney; our Sarah is the real deal.

14 new theory:

Karl Rove and McBush new that since Sarah Palin was an unknown name in politics, they did what Paris Hilton's people did: create a scandal to make her (in)famous in a hurry. Instead of a sex tape (which might be on the way, wink wink), they got Sarah to have a Downs baby and had her 17 year old daughter get pregnant.

Now she's the talk-of-the-town and voila! she's a household name...just like Paris Hilton. Well done, Karl "the architect" Rove. Well done.

Both giving and receiving, don't forget!

Also, I'd like to cross-post this from the "Never Surrender" thread, if you don't mind:

"Andy Sullivan’s boss is James Bennet.

The switchboard number at The Atlantic is (202) 266-6000. If you spell Bennet’s last name in the directory you’ll get his voicemail."

That strikes me as a nice opportunity to calmly, politely and reasonably let Andrew's boss know how much you appreciate his efforts.

It's remarkable Ace, but I think it boils down to hope and fear.  On the Republican side, hope we can win this, with a candidate who shares our values perhaps to a greater extent than McCain himself.  We are not worried abou the inexperience factor - Johnny is the one we are electing to the big job, not Sarah, and his qualifications (career Navy man, lots of time in the Senate) have never been in doubt.

On the Democrat side, Obamamessiah and his backers/followers must be feeling like they have been outflanked.  Now its the Republicans with the young, hip, appealing candidate.  Perhaps the Demos are beginning to feel "a very human chill up their spine" as the narrator said in the movie "300".  A fear that the Republicans might just beat them seems to be turning very quickly into rage - look how vicously they are going after Palin.

You sure got that right. The garbage being put out there about Palin right now is way beyond what I can recall seeing before.

Again, I ask: why?  What the hell about Palin has put the fear of Jesus into these
morons? The idiots at DU are acting like a bunch of mules turned loose into a field of
loco weed.  We're talking foaming at the mouth insane.

But, for some reason, I'm smiling a lot lately. Somehow, I suspect I know why
they're all going insane, including Maximus Glutez.

31 My stats went through the roof on Friday, too, pretty wild and crazy for my tiny blog.  It was funny, because my electricity went out on Thurday night (during Obama's speech) due to a violent storm. It didn't come back on until Friday afternoon. I found out about the Palin VP pick in the car, and literally screamed with joy. When I saw my stats later that day, I was completely flabbergasted.

A normal day for me was between 2 and 3 thousandhits. On Friday it jumped to over 57,000, most of the hits going to my post from February talking up the Palin VP idea, with lots of pix.

My traffic is still high, (for me).

34 I have been watching this election as a spectator, because I really didn't feel there was anything in it for me.  Now, I am on fire and 100% in it.   I think it is because conservatives have been so starved for leadership.  The leftys wanted McCain to pick Lieberman or Ridge because they know it would not do a thing for him.  It has nothing whatsoever to do with experience.  (That one just keeps me laughing)  The leftys are unhinged and deranged, because Sarah Palin gets people like me, who are clinging to their guns and bibles to feel like there is something in it for them.

35 Cool Sarah Palin Fact #26: When Barack Obama is asked about his greatest personal failing, he says it's failing to wrestle with a certain selfishness. When Sarah Palin is asked about her greatest personal failing, it's failing to wrestle a Kodiak bear and win... in less than 30 seconds.

36 All the chumps who are trashing her may just be setting her up to succeed. None of them know enough about her to have a serious opinion so they try and bullshit and say she is a gaffe machine or a ditz or a hick...

All she has to do now is calmly go about her business. Even if you do not really like the pick you can enjoy it vicariously because most of the women who have been counted out before they even had a chance to show people what they had to offer are going to be happy if Palin is treated badly, smiles back at them and then does her thing.

I was at the Alaska state fair yesterday in Palmer (right next door to Wasilla), and stopped by the Alaskan Republican booth looking for Palin stickers.  The women their said they had none, they all disappeared within hours of them having them printed up.

Having seen quite a few interviews with Governor Palin, I think the McCain campaign just needs to turn her loose on to the media.  She can certainly handle her own, and the more exposure she gets, the more successful she will be.

I knew she was going to be the first female POTUS months ago.

I certainly hope that O'Reilly highlights the Internet smears on his next show.

Signed a former democrat in Alaska

p.s. I am waiting for a backlash against the lower 48 in Alaska from all the condescension being displayed against us.

I also donated, for the first time ever, to a political party.


Johnnymac running his campaign with military precision is an amazing thing to witness.  Socialist hack advisors like "austan goolsbee" (WTF kind of name is that, anyway?) are nothing but lead in Obama bin Biden's leaky vessel.

Obamamania is dying down because people have discovered that he is emptier than Sullivan's head and are quietly moving away from him.

Palinmania will die down because people will discover just what a great person she is and will quietly join her team.

44 Whoever said that the libs are going batshit crazy was right on the money; I haven't seen this much rabid hate and frothing, seething insanity since Bush won in 2004.  "Madness" just isn't a proper descriptor.

Fun Fact #65 about Palin:  She once punched a hole in a caribou just to see what was on the other side.


Posted by: Jajos, FL at September 01, 2008 12:44 PM (9v34C)

45 Another first-time donor to a political campaign...the day that I heard that Palin was the VP candidate, we sent $250.  I had a tepid to warm liking for McCain before, and now I wish I could vote as many times as the average Chicago graveyard inhabitant. 

For me, it's the idea that she is NOT a part of the perpetually-political class.  I think that the Republicans should run an ad showing the percentage of Obama and Biden's adult life spent in political office, and compare that to McCain and Palin.  Palin strikes me one of the few politicians who didn't aspire to be a part of the overlord class and simply went into politics because she thought she could make a difference at whatever level.  For Obama, I have a sense that he has cared about political jobs pretty much insofar as these could advance him into further, higher-ranking positions. 

And, frankly, I WANT to have candidates with experiences outside of trust-fund/think-tank/political-organizer jobs.  Unlike Obama and Biden, I think that Palin (and McCain!) would rather skin a moose than a taxpayer.

46  However misguided their thinking may be, normal human beings tend to recoil from insane hatred. Women will sympathize with her, men will want to protect her, and large numbers of the insane, hate filled, leftist media will have revealed more of their true colors to the largely normal American public. Sarah Palin may not need sympathy or protection, but I am pretty sure she won't turn down the votes they bring.

52 Thank you Lance for a great video. The State of Alaska is full of the most majestically beautiful scenery in the world, and now the State has given the rest of us a great woman to be part of the McCain Palin ticket - wow. I was struck by the images of the polar bears that you used - don't they look cute! Let's draw a little analogy with them though. They are extremely dangerous (especially when protecting their young!), I have seen a location where one had carved through 18 inches of solid ice to get to food when I was in the high arctic once. On that same trip, I learned, when leaving the sleeping huts, to always check the "wing mirrors" outside the door to the hut for polar bears - they had been known to hide outside the door, out of sight, to take down the unwary worker leaving the hut. In short, yeah, they look cute and cuddly, but they are extremely dangerous and tough. Like someone else we are all coming to know!

Posted by: Wilf Nixon at September 01, 2008 01:06 PM (aSL7x)

53 I am not that surprised by the uptick. The appeal is similar to Obama's on one level and that is because the reason the great unwashed really doesn't pay much attention or care about politics and policy because we have an almost totally professional class of politicians on the state and federal level. I know it's cynical but it's true, they really do not pay that much attention to the average Joe or Jane. Obama captured that but has been shown to be the quintessential pro pol. Gov Palin isn't and each new "knock" on her makes her more average, and more appealing. On one level she is Carter in 76 but opposite in politics. If she were to run as president and be elected it would be as big a disaster. This is the exactly best scenario. If she isn't corrupted in the next 8 years she could easily be a Reagan. Yeah, that garners interest. Unfortunately it also probably explains alot of Milky Loads', KOS and DU's behavior, they want the same hits too.  But based on her performance in her first speech with Mccain I will take that chance, I think an awful lot of people are thinking the same thing.

59 JB, I meant if she ran now as opposed to in a few years. Why? Because her ideas and policies could be easily dismissed by the Washington establishment. She would just be ignored.  Carter was a terrible president but he could have been an average one if Kennedy et al didn't hate him. Both would face not just the opposition but a significant part of their own party as opponents. With 8 years, or at least 4, as VP she would have clout along with authenticity.

66 That video made me a little sad. First of all, because Palin was sort of the Moron's little secret, since we first saw her in that Craig Fergussen clip. That's all gone now, and she belongs to the world, and maybe history. And it would have been cool to do what that guy did and just drop by the governor's house, but that will never be possible again. For one thing, she's no longer there, and for another, either she (if McCain loses) or her successor (if McCain wins) will probably have to have real security going forward. Some of that small town goodness will be gone forever.

I have watched Lance's video 4 times, and dammit I keep tearing up... what a wonderful thing for a wonderful country to be invigorated by such a wonderful woman.

BTW, my moonbat neighbors hate Alaska, where they used to live, and I just figured out why.  Fuckers probably got deported for stupidity.

Andrew Sullivan.

Cocksucker.

70 The left is going bonkers for one reason: FEAR. Obama - we got nothin' Biden - we really got nothin' McCain - uh, Hey! He's like OLD man! Palin - %$#@&$#*!!! Like I said, FEAR!

Sarah Palin has inspired more Google searches than I've ever seen.   Even my small blog which typically gets just 300-500 hits a day, suddenly hit almost 10,000 hits on Friday because of a post I wrote about Palin back in April.  And the comments from the left are venomous.

74 Bigfoot, rednecks, Hollywood Republicans, and Obama's birth certificate rumor are still big google searches at my site, but Sarah Palin blows them all away.

75 I fully expect a self-deprecating hunting joke from Cheney to Palin during this convention.

Cheney, " Sarah, I hear you're a hunter....I saw the caribou picture, cute. In DC there are no caribou, only Lawyers and Politicians.  I'll let you guess which are in season."

76 Speaking of Excitable Andy: I understand that Sullivan once wrote a post titled "Sexual McCarthyism: An Article No One Should Have to Write." I'm on a Treo and can't easily do Wayback Machine searches. Can anyone find a copy of it? I have a feeling that contrasting it with his current call for Sarah Palin's medical records might be interesting.

77 We need to ship you dry coffee grounds and tons of bacon to fuel the Ace in this time of WE NEED TO KNOW!  Is alan Colmes really a part of the lizard man society?  Is it true John Edwards tried ODing the other day and Kenneddy slogged his addled torso to his aid, not ot save him, but to not let the edwards bar stock go to waste... WE GOT CRISIS PEOPLE!  THeres a STORM... SOMEWHERE!!! Get the alphabet soup channels mobilized!

I want more on this alaskan supah uber sekret technology crested in icecubes that the inuits perfected before even stonehenge was made a football field...

WHat do the Alaskans know about flying cars?

I heard TOdd was on a project a few years back funded through dark matter fund and Kawasaki MOtors... Just a tip... DOing the Google heavy lifting now.  BEans got the bandwidth...

79 Haha, Power Glutes' various nicknames always make me laugh.

80 I've been experiencing a spike, too. My traffic went up nearly 19 fold today... and I thought everyone would be out on the lake! It's incredible to watch. Real conservatives finally have something to be excited about--I know it made the difference in my vote for McCain--and the libs quickly figured out that their dreams have been crushed. Serves 'em right. That's what happens when your hope is filled with nothingness and lofty words.

"...is like saying Power Glutes Andy is "rather fond" of milky loads."

82 Congratulations, Ace. You are sharp and dedicated. You deserve the traffic. Everybody; tell people to vote this year. It's a kick.
