Let us match wits on a sphere of bloggo
If you wander over to Memeorandum with some regularity, you will likely have noticed a sort of ideological segregation in terms of the manner by which bloggers choose to link to one particular story over another. Each time there arises some incident that would appear to be embarrassing to liberals, the “Discussion” section underneath will be filled with conservative blogs which have quite understandably latched on in an effort to perpetuate it on their own sites, and vice versa. Occasionally, one or two representatives of the embarrassed faction will have a go at trying to salvage something from the story; once in a while someone will go so far as to actually link to it for the actual purpose of noting that his or her chosen party is imperfect. For the most part, though, ideological bloggers with the option of avoiding a story they’d rather not have to address will take that option, allowing them and their readers to avoid having to acknowledge the flaws of their allies while instead concentrating on the other, more convenient flaws of their enemies.
As such, I would like to make the following offer to any conservative blogger who happens to read this: if you happen upon some story that is being avoided by my colleagues among the anti-conservative set, you may put your argument on your blog and I will link to it from here and address it. In return, you must extend me the same allowance each time you take advantage of my offer, which is to say you must link to any argument I decide to make and answer it at your blog. It does not even have to be a news story, but merely some incredibly brilliant point you have thought up and with which you’d like some atheistic and anti-Palinist opponent to have to publicly contend.
If you are a conservative blogger and would like to take me up on my extraordinarily generous offer, send a link to the post you’d like me to answer via email@example.com and I shall do so. If I do not hear from at least one conservative blogger by midnight tonight I will begin executing hostages. Please send hostages. CEASE TRANSMISSION.
