via Sissy Willis:

There’s a whole army of patriotic Davids out there across this great country ready to stand up and to speak out in defense of liberty, and these Davids aren’t afraid to tell Goliath “don’t tread on me.”

That’s just one line (Sissy has more here) but consider.

That is the second time in under a month in a major presentation that she quoted Glenn Reynolds (the other was the blood libel line from his WSJ piece).

Can we assume that Sarah Palin reads Glenn Reynolds? (Some enterprising radio host should have him on his show.)

Glenn Reynolds draws between 250,000 and 500,000 hits a day and gets 30-60 posts up per day EVERY DAY. If Sarah Palin is quoting him them perhaps a wise reporter would get to know him, or a smart producer would have him on the air.

Then again I don’t expect much from the MSM, supposedly the NYT was there and couldn’t even get her meeting people after the speech right

Prospective candidates, particularly if they are courting supporters, routinely sit through dinners and mingle with guests. But in her case, Ms. Palin entered the room only for her speech and left immediately after.

Actually Palin stayed and took photos with attendees as was announced at the start of the speech. If they can’t get that detail right when they were supposedly there why would I expect them to follow-up on this kind of story.

You know there is a reason why Instapundit took down the “NYT of bloggers” comment from his site. The times should work for the day when they can be called the “instapundit of newspapers”.

Update: Conservatives for Palin notices

Tonight Little Miss Attila Joins us from the left coast for DaTechGuy on DaRadio.

Her posts may take a minimalist approach but her opinions sure don’t. Last week I suggested Glenn Reynolds would be a tough act to follow and her reaction was:

I can beat Glenn Reynolds any day of the week. Especially on a Saturday.

Well tonight at 9 p.m. on AM 830 WCRN we will find out if it’s true, and if you are on the left coast and wish to listen to the The scourge of the blogosphere from the WCRN web site:

Also we welcome two new advertisers to our show including some special offers:

Our first new advertiser is Central Plaza Pizza 220 Main Street in Townsend Ma. They not only have great food (try their new half pound burgers) and a killer pinball machine and a nice flat screen TV with the games on, but they have a bonus you won’t believe. Go there for a bite to eat (or even just a soda) write your name and number on the back of your receipt drop it in the jar and you’re entered for a monthly drawing for two tickets to see the Boston Bruins at the Garden! A great meal and a chance to win Bruins tickets? If that’s not worth a call to 978-597-2223 or trip to Townsend I’d like to know what is? (and don’t forget to mention you heard about it from DaTechGuy).

Our second new advertiser is T & R Custom Automotive 621 Lancaster Street Leominster, MA right on route 117. Not only do they repair everything from the family car to dump trucks and John Deere Tractors. Not only do they do bodywork, general repairs and detailing, not only do they offer used cars and a low price, but for the next few weeks they are running a DaTechGuy on DaRadio special. Starting tomorrow mention their ad on DaTechGuy on DaRadio when you call 978-401-0364 and get $10 an hour off labor!

With gas prices where they are that can ad up to a few more gallons in your tank once your car is up and running!

Finally one of our first advertisers Aaron Pallet 150 Benson Street Fitchburg is offering a deal to new customers who find them through DaTechGuy on DaRadio. Mention their ads on DaTechGuy on DaRadio and get 5% off your first Pallet order. So your small or large business not only gets Aaron Pallet’s decades of quality and dedication but you get an extra 5% in your pocket.

Please patronize these and all our advertisers from the 5th Street diner (134 Harvard St. next to Romano’s Mkt and the 5th street Bridge) , to Joyce’s Pies and Bakery 580 N Main St, Leominster (my favorite is the Key Lime Pie)

From DLott’s Insurance (in the same building as Joyce’s Pies call 508-277-1427 for a quote or ask at Formal Attire) to The Natural discount shop 614 N Main Street (Killer Rootbeer there)

From the FCA flight center at Fitchburg Airport (only $59 gets you in the air for your 1st lesson) to Bee’s Shipping (908)-656-3941 (the best and most cost effective way to ship to Ghana, Liberia, Guinea or Nigeria with pickup points in New york, NY, New Haven,Hartford and East Hartford CT, Leominster, Fitchburg and Worcester, MA and Newark & Elizabeth, NJ)

From Sharp Designs Hair Salon at their new location 360 Summer Street (say hi to Bernadette for me). To Little’s Floor Covering at 359 Summer right across the street from Sharp Designs.

From Linguini’s Italian Eatery 350 Boston Post Road West Route 20 in Marlborough (two words Chicken Pizzola) to Putnam Street Lanes 14 Putnam St Fitchburg (remember show up for the creation of Tea Party bowling team (or teams) Wednesday Jan 26th at 6 p.m.).

Remember these people and all the others who have advertised with me make the show possible. When you support our advertisers and thank them for advertising on DaTechGuy on DaRadio you are helping me support my family without having to hit DaTipJar so on my family’s behalf thank you for your patronage to all of our advertisers.

Ad Time allocated as desired

 

As you might guess the show got a bit of attention last night with Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit as the guest. The calls started right at the beginning of the show and didn’t stop till the end of the hour. (I’m afraid we’ve given Little Miss Attila a tough act to follow).

Now would be a good time to remind folks that starting on Feb 5th my show will be going to two hours ; with more bloggers, more talk, more guests and more fun!

That also means there is another block of 12 minutes for more ads but have no fear you have a chance to lock in the current ad rates by reserving now! Any person who either purchases time now, reserves time for Feb 5th now or gets on our waiting list (if we are sold out) is guaranteed these rates for the life of the show.

And remember we will not only allocate your ad time in any way you want we will write and produce your ads AT NO CHARGE!

Think about what you get with DaTechGuy on DaRadio:

  • 50,000 Watts of Evening range covering all New England and beyond
  • Nationally known and statewide bloggers who attract hundreds to hundreds of thousands of readers daily
  • National players talking politics with interest high preparing the ground for the 2012 NH primary season!

 

If you are interested or have a question simply leave a comment to this post or e-mail me and I’ll be happy to provide more details or answer any questions.

Update: Fixed a formula error in the 13 week price for 4 min.

Update 2: There are instalanches and then they’re instalanches!

Given that it’s a 50,000 watt station that blankets New England — including New Hampshire — I would have expected that a show reaching so many bloggers and Tea Party types would be running national political ads, but either (1) it’s too early for those yet, or (2) those advertisers just haven’t caught on yet. If not, they’re missing out, I think.

I make my living off of the ads of my blogger radio show, that’s how the mortgage gets paid. That paragraph in blogosphere terms, is as close to an “Oprah endorsing your book” moment that there is.

Update 3: Little Miss Attila accepts the challenge

Update 4 …and reminds me of the “H” I dropped in Instalanche
