Eat 'em when they run
Son, when you see a warblogger, get the legs first, they may have a little shit running down them, but since they won't fight back, you have to stop them from running, that's the key, stop the cowards from running, then eat

April 28, 2005: An Open Letter to All Bloggers
Charles Johnson, Marc Danziger and I have been sneaking around over the last few months, trying to turn blogs into a business. We have enlisted some others with names familiar to you with the intention of working in two areas - aggregating blogs to increase corporate advertising and creating our own professional news service.
With respect to advertising, we do not wish to go into competition with Henry Copeland's BlogAds, which we fully support. (Some of us even have them!) We are working on another model that will sell ads en masse, not blog-by-blog. We expect this model to go live within a few weeks.
As for the Blog News Service, a lot of work needs to be done and a lot of questions answered. An editorial board consisting of Glenn Reynolds, PowerLine, Lawrence Kudlow, Hugh Hewitt, Marc Cooper, Wretchard of the Belmont Club and Tim Blair, as well as the founders, is already in place with other bloggers in many countries having signed on as contributors.
This is no way meant to be exclusive. We invite you all to join us. On the advertising end, any blogger -- whether political or not -- is welcome. We would be delighted to place ads on your blog and pay you for them. You may find out more and, we hope, join by simply emailing us at email@example.com.
If you are an advertiser, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes. This would be a "news service" if by "news service" you mean a loosely confederated group of individuals who don't necessarily go out and cover events so much as read the traditional news sources about them and then they...retype it. God knows you can't find that on the internets. Of course, check out that editorial board and the advertisers are sure to come a'running
They should call this this racist bullshiters, cowards and liars service.
I'm sure they should get plenty of ads for Celebrate Diversity and kill the sand niggers T-shirts. Assrocket and friends are idiots of the first order and Simon cowers at the sight of a Pakistani school girl. The shit runs down his legs when he goes to Westwood.
And in other words, they want to do what Kos and Atrios have already done. They might start writing true things and going from there. But that's too hard. So they have to lie.
Editorial board my as, more like a Confederacy of Dunces.
