My 15 minutes?

This blog just got cited on the CBS website.

Blogger Tom DeLay Drops Hammer On Liberals, Ex-GOP House Leader Launches A New Blog - CBS News
Rep. Tom DeLay, former House majority leader, has entered the blogosphere. And liberal bloggers are not rolling out the cyber welcome mat.
DeLay was quick to anticipate the outspoken ways of bloggers. According to, the site will have a way to "filter out" those with dissenting views, and according to numerous reports, many negative comments that escaped the filter have already been removed from the site.

James Risser, over at, claims to have rescued and posted many of those negative comments about DeLay.

Many liberal bloggers were amused that DeLay's blog received so many negative comments in the first place. "Folks like DeLay are not exactly down with the reality of democracy in such unadulterated form," a blogger at Blue Meme writes.

Fame has not changed me.

Isn't it about time for a long, sappy, Christmas themed post thanking us for our readership, reminding us to count our blessings (48 1/2 in the Senate, 233 or so in the House), enjoy time with our families, etc. and so forth?

Tom Delay was selling 15 minutes, but if you bought you only got 15 seconds. Such is the way of the world. That should keep you grounded.

Uh, 15 milliseconds, maybe.

The whole thing is quite an education into the ways in which old media are having trouble with the new media.

How many hits would you guess we got from CBS -- 1000? 10,000? More?

Try eight. Yeah, as in less than ten.
