Where's My Share?


Now why didn't I think of this? It seems that some bloggers were selling out their web space to political campaigns, Why should I toil in poverty when I can make good money shilling for the likes of Sherrod Brown and Hillary Clinton? I've been wanting a plasma screen television set, so hey, where's my cut? The guy from Ankle Biting Pundits received $31,500 to tout John McCain, a small price for ones soul, but certainly enough to buy a big screen tv and a Mac, give me that much, and I promise not to write anything bad about the Senator. (Is that extortion? Mmmmaybe)Pay me enough annually and I might go away completely.
I realize that I don't generate the traffic of something like The Daily Kos (who had three diarist on the political payroll), perhaps that means I will work cheaper ( I personally think I draw more traffic than they do, the evidence is just being supressed by the man. It's all a conspiracy). Or maybe I can get a Max Cleland deal where I will continue to criticize the current administration until they appoint me to some board to shut me up. But since I don't see any of this happening, I'll continue to stay here and continue to do this for free.

Now, if they offered cash for me to continue to bash Bush? Easy money.

Hell, I'll do it for free if it will get the shit out of DC. I'm cheap, but I'm not easy.

There's nothing wrong with a little political advertising. Why, I think we should each get a little money from Senator Phineas T. Fogbottom. Why shouldn't we, the unwashed liberals, leftists and just plain agitators, get rich too? C'mon, this is Amurka!

never would have ads on my blog -- that's not it's purpose...

it's purpose is to allow me to vent...simply that...

Yes indeed, it's safe to say that your traffic greatly exceeds the so-called big boys, but the man works in mysterious ways.
I have the same problem at my place. I'm postive that I'm getting a million visitors a day because:
I'm good enough
I'm smart enough and,
Dammit, people like me

undeniable liberal...I hate to break it to you this way dude...but it's that big dick of a nose that gets you noticed. You should have smelled the coffee about that a long time ago.

I do believe that Peter Daou (who is no longer the head editor of the Daou report) is being paid by the Hills to help her with her campaigning for Prez...in various ways. I've heard the Daily Kos is a whore for money. It does make free speech a different thing in that capacity. Forced free speech...

Wow, you guys make me feel guilty for using Google's Adsense...which I've made about 3 cents from in 2 years. Seriously.

Undeniable Liberal, I like the Penis Nose Glasses. I used to wear Penis Nose Glases in our band that would play in local taverns around U of Oregon in the early 80's.
