Russ Smith, Internet Genius

This headline bids fair for a place as Rule 6:
Robert Stacy McCain is very concerned about Andrew Sullivan's circumcised [noun]
Brilliantly combining Rules 2, 4 and 5, with a bit of homophobia thrown in for good measure. NTTAWWT.

Here I labor diligently to ensure that I get more "Established Men" ads in the rotation and -- by turning Rule 2 against me -- the evil mastermind of Splice Today obligates me to use the name "Andrew Sullivan," which automatically triggers the "meet gay singles" ad rotation. (I've reverse-engineered the algorithm.) Heaven knows what the algorithm will produce if I throw in Conor Friedersdorf, but I must consider the trade-off between traffic and click-through.

At any rate, there is nothing on earth that concerns me less than Sully's [noun]. Yet ever since Hannah Rosin brought it up, it seems to be all anyone wants to talk about.

Can we talk about Christina Hendricks, maybe? We now return you to your regularly scheduled VodkaPundit.


  1. There may be a problem with your post, the headline link links to your original post, not to Russ Smith -whoever he is.

  2. @Maryk,
    Fixed, thanks, I wouldn't have touched another man' know...without a prompt.

  3. Smitty wrote: Fixed, thanks, I wouldn't have touched another man's . . .

    Bad HTML. Just nip it. Nip it in the bud, Smitty!

  4. Did you just slap a Rule 5 label on a post discussing Andrew Sullivan's circumcized noun?

    I may vomit.

  5. At least there was a Christina Hendricks link. We can never have too much Christina Hendrix.

    Loyalty to one's own true love is desirable and even mandatory, but a man who does not see Christine Hendricks as awesome in her desirability is not a proper man.

  6. Mugger's headline reminds me of Jonah Goldberg's quip about Alan Dershowitz:

    “...If you gave [him] a dose of Viagra, his posture would improve, he’d get a ruddy complexion, and he’d grow a few inches taller. It’s doubtful his head could swell any more.”

  7. What I'm trying to say is that I reckon the little blue miracle has the same effect on Andrew as Jonah thought it did on the Dersh.
