The Power of Blogging27 August, 2008
About a month ago, McAin’t (the presumptive Republican candidated for President of the United States) made an incredible claim: because the Republicans were talking about opening up all of America’s coast to off-shore drilling, Republicans were responsible for the drop in oil prices in August.
In that vein, I hereby claim that the cancelling of the Nun Beauty Pageant was due to my blog. Yes, mine. It is the only blog I found (during a 1.2 second search which did not include an actual, you know, um, search engine (I only used the parts of the internet which McAin’t understands (which made things much simpler))) which discussed this important problem. Since I talked about it, my blog obviously effected the politics of the world.
If a couple of right-wing Republicans just talking about oil drives the price down, then, obviously, when I blogged about the Nun Beauty Pageant, I drove the idea out. Kind of like exorcism. Without the nunsense. Sort of.
