Watching Paint Dry Inside the Blogs
Apparently my post this morning about the “conventional warfare option” was discussed on the “Inside the Blogs” segment today on CNN’s “Inside Politics.” Commenter Mark Williams was kind enough to let me know, and has provided a link to the video.
It was an interesting experience for me, watching a woman reciting on nationwide television the drivel I dashed off this morning before heading for the shower. And she read it in a British accent, which just made it that much more special.
I have to admit that I find the concept of this segment amusing. It’s a little like watching golf on TV. If you play golf, watching golf on TV is fun; for others, it’s like watching paint dry. I imagine a similar concept is at work with the “Inside the Blogs” segment. To me, it’s kind of interesting — especially if my blog is on it. But I feel a little sorry for the average viewer, watching two women sitting in front of computer screens and reading from Internet sites. At least from political Internet sites . . .
Then again, the women are attractive, so maybe that makes the experience worthwhile for half the audience. Ace of Spades (who was featured on the same segment for his wrongheaded criticism of my “conventional warfare option”) thinks that one of the women (“Jacki”) was hitting on him. I hate to encourage the guy, but “Jacki” didn’t ask me for any personal information. Obviously, she already knows I’m married . . .
