Congratulations to my dad, who yesterday afternoon became the first BrendanLoy.com blog-child to earn a link from a major blogger. (454 hits directly resulting from the link, and counting!)
Mickey Kaus (who, alas, doesn’t have permalinks) wrote at 3:30 PM Monday:
Psst: When people noticed that Bush only got 85% or 86% in the GOP primary in New Hampshire–the pro-Bush response was to note that this was nothing new, because Ronald Reagan got only 86% in 1984. The only trouble with this argument is that the final count seems to show that Bush actually got only 79 percent, as calculated by Joe Loy from the official Secretary of State results. Maybe New Hampshire actually is yet another sign, if we needed one, that Bush is surprisingly weak at the moment.
This resulted from an e-mail that my dad sent to Kaus correcting his math. See, you can get ahead in life by being uppity. :)
Anyway, congrats! And thanks for the boost, Dad — the combination of the lingering Kaus effect and my weekly election boost made today (Tuesday) BrendanLoy.com’s most prolific traffic day in nearly seven months: 760 hits as of 11:52 PM MST.
