"Community" has a certain flavor of identity politics, suggestive of protest marches and the mau-mau routine, mindless chants led by some demagogic huckster with a bullhorn who insists on being addressed as The Reverend: "No Justice, No Peace!"
Are the Rev. Smitty and I "community organizers"? Do we need some slogans or chants? Our own Judge Sotomayor, to represent the "diversity" of the babe-blogging community?
Or, like the "issues" raised by the demagogic hucksters, is this all merely a shameless pretext to post a photo of Jeff Goldblum's 21-year-old girlfriend, Tania Raymonde?
NTTAWWT.UPDATE: A card-carrying member of the Rule 5 community, Donald Douglas notes that the "Classy Mommy" blog gets its own New York Times feature based on "60,000 unique visitors every month."
Considering my monthly SiteMeter total hasn't gone below 115,000 since January, I ought to feel outraged. But what about Ace of Spades, whose monthly SiteMeter number is usually about 2 million? Where's the New York Times feature about the hobo-hating Ewok and his merry band of morons?
Nevertheless, despite my resentment at this injustice, I'll offer some useful advice to the Classy Mommy bloggers: Change the name to "Classy Mommy Nude."
You don't actually have to provide nudity. It's just what they call "search engine maximization." Traffic is traffic. Hits is hits. Which is why I'm thinking of changing my blog name to "Lindsay Lohan Topless." Also, dibs on "Selena Gomez Jailbait."
