Woo hoo!!! We're bein' talked about...

We're famous (cough, cough)... we made The FundamenaList / The American Prospect, "Liberal Intelligence"...

Sorry, I've never heard of it, but they've heard about us... I guess now we're all going to have a lot more libs popping onto our blogs writing nasty comments... gotta tell you, there are some pretty bad-talkin' folks on the liberal side... things sure have changed since the free-speech, brotherly love days...

Just thought I'd warn you since the link they used in their article goes directly to our list of blogs on the main website. Put on your battle gear and be prepared to delete comments. I would suggest that ALL of our blogs turn on "comment moderation" which allows you to preview comments before posting. (Blogger users: I'll tell you how at the end of this blog)

Here's what they wrote:

4. Palin's Recruiters Plot 2012 Run.

A recent Gallup poll showed that 67 percent of Republicans want Palin to run for president in 2012, with Romney (62 percent) and Huckabee (61 percent) her closest competitors.

Among the Palin faithful is Stephen Maloney, a Pennsylvania-based activist who says he's devoting himself to recruiting Sarah Palin to run for president in 2012 through his new blog, where he writes that "a key for Gov. Palin in getting elected in 2012 is to increase her appeal to moderate and independent voters. Bloggers can help her do [this] by emphasizing ? her moderation and her independence. Sounds simple, right? Well, it is." It is? Maloney doesn't tell us how.

Maloney joins Team Sarah, a coalition of 60,000 women launched by the anti-abortion group the Susan B. Anthony List, an early booster of Palin's vice-presidential run, and the Read My Lipstick network and its affiliated bloggers.

How to turn on Comment Moderation in Blogger (blogspot)

- click on "settings" under the title of your blog on the Dashboard
- click on "Comments"
- scan down to "Comment Moderation" and click "always"
--- a window will open where you can put in an email address; any comments left on your blog will be sent to that email address so you can approve prior to posting (or delete if you choose)

Note: at the top there's a place for you to choose "Who can comment?". I usually keep it on anonymous because, much as I dislike chickens who won't stand behind their comments, some people really do have good reason not to want their name left on blogs. If you have comment moderation turned on it's no biggie to allow anyone to comment. However, you may want to click on any of the other options.

Note 2: I highly recommend going through the settings options and looking to see if there are other things you'd like to consider doing. I have it set up so anytime something is posted on my blogs, I get an email. That could save you if someone hacks your blog somehow, which has happened.
