The Buckeye Bloggers

In the spirit of shameless self-promotion, Brain Shavings has joined a new blog alliance with Wizblog and The Open End. We’re now calling ourselves The Buckeye Bloggers.

The Buckeye Bloggers

The gaggle of opportunists known as The Northern Alliance has piggybacked on the success of Hugh Hewitt, a native Ohioan with a nationally syndicated radio talk show, a syndicated column in The Weekly Standard, several best-selling books, and a top-notch conservative blog. Thanks to Hugh’s efforts (and their own stellar writing and research too … but I’ll gloss over that inconvenient fact), these erstwhile unknowns have gotten enough exposure that they’ve managed to torpedo Dan Rather and become a thorn in the sides of The Minneapolis Star Tribune and The Associated Press. Not bad for a bunch of pajama-clad scribblers from the midwestern tundra.
If they can do it, why can’t we?
I have high hopes, because not only have we successfully begged the mighty Hugh Hewitt to shill for us … we have an ace in the hole: Eric Hogue, host of his own morning talk show on KTKZ in Sacramento, a blogger, and a former Ohioan himself. Lately, he’s been guest hosting for Hugh, Bill Bennett, and Laura Ingraham. Can Hannity or Limbaugh be far behind? Assuming he can keep on functioning without sleep like he’s been doing lately, we ought to get more promotion for our buck out of him than anybody else. Ah, who am I kidding? We’re not paying him anything. But flattery will get us everywhere, we hope. Seriously, he’s an up-and-coming radio talker, and we’re happy he’s thrown in with us.
This ought to be fun. Watch out, Lileks and Power Line and Captain’s Quarters. That speck in your rearview mirror just got a horsepower boost.
