I don’t know how much extra traffic LGF got yesterday…

…and I’m not going to bother to look it up. But Charles’ whole “instabeg” business certainly didn’t hurt my traffic. It quadrupled yesterday.

Jules Crittenden who is the source of a lot of those extra hits (thanks muchly) had this to say on the subject:

Some people ask why we do this … pay attention to loony tunes like Charles Johnson, Andrew Sullivan. I say because they are there, like mountains that loomed large in their world and are weirdly inverting themselves into crazy molehills. Also because, as GOV deftly illustrates, it is an entertaining exercise. Of course we open ourselves up to charges of Johnson obsession. No cruel “Johnson” jokes please.

The disease he is worried about is Bloggers Alzheimer’s aka Sullivan’s Syndrome. I was worried about catching it myself, then I looked at my hits…

Maybe Chucky should change sides more often.
