I am going to take a moment here to fawn, slobber and bootlick. That's Ok, the objects of my affection deserve it.
First, thanks to Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit for the link to the McClellan post.
Second, thanks to Hugh Hewitt for mentioning Mark in Mexico on the Right Talk radio show with The Ace of Spades and Karol. Hugh mentioned the blog and then quoted some of the stats from the McClellan post that I noted.
Third, thanks to Dr. Rusty Shackleford of The Jawa Report for the heads up about the radio broadcast. I had been out all afternoon and was unaware of the hit from Instapundit until I returned and saw the unusually high number of comments on the McClellan post. I read through the comments, then lit up Yahoo mail to start deleting emails. I receive an email of every comment posted in the blog which is sometimes redundant. I saw an email from Rusty which said,
I'm listening to Ace's show on Right Talk. He's interviewing Hugh
Hewitt. Hewitt just mentioned your blog. You can hear the replay
next hour at Right Talk." Dr. Rusty Shackleford www.mypetjawa.mu.nu
So I hotfooted it over to Right Talk's stream feed just in time to hear Hugh make Mark's day. I would never have known about it without the heads up from Rusty.
When I visited The Jawa Report, Rusty said he received a one minute hoist on CNN but no one gave him the heads up as he did for me. He's looking for a transcript. Visit him and help him out if you can.
