This Just In: Bloggers Should Not Have Hot Bodies!

Chalice Chick has an Asshat of the Week Award, and I feel compelled to award someone one, too (and you can call me CopyCat of the Week)!

It's this Ann Althouse person, who actually caused a huge bloggy furor over this nonsense. Could this be more stupid?

Thanks to Pandagon for alerting me to this absolutely ridiculous cat-fighting.

It overshadows another controversy stemming from the same event. It's bubbled over into quite a discussion. The bottom line? Apparently bloggers of color shouldn't have opinions, or at least shouldn't be impudent enough to express them within earshot their betters.

I read your site and a bunch of the links and I'm confused. My impression from what I've read is that there are about five bloggers of color in the top 100 progressive blogs statistically:

Two were invited and turned the luncheon down, one has a policy against shilling for politicians and the other two have been vocally critical of Hillary Clinton in the past.

As this lunch for twenty people was essentially a campaign event for Hillary, the exclusion of the last two seems logical to me. Not noble, but logical.

Should there be more bloggers of color in the top 100?

Absolutely.

But I'm not sure Peter Daou could have won here.

If I'm missing something obvious, please tell me.

T, but BREASTS are so much more important than any other issue!

CC, I think you meant to post your comment to Ann, non?

I meant it as a response to T and should have labeled it as such.

My bad.

Breasts are perfectly acceptible if they belong to stupid conservatives like Katherine Harris or Pam of Atlas Shrugs.

It's only when they belong to smart, articulate liberals that they cause problems.
