Drudge and LI have something in common.  August 2012 was our best month ever in terms of traffic.  LI had 1,449,541 page views, Drudge had 943,281,513.

Of course, I didn’t build it on my own, nobody does.  I was helped by the very generous linkage of Prof. Glenn Reynolds, Power Line, Hot Air, Ace and many other bloggers.

And by great posting by Anne and Bryan.  Anne’s video of the Chick-fil-A protests has over 200,000 views on YouTube, and introduced a lot of new people to LI.

Branco’s cartoons have added a great new dimension to LI, and College Insurrection hopefully will expand the demographics of the Insurrection.

I also need to thank Elizabeth Warren, who almost daily provides fodder for exposing the hypocrisy and deviousness of your modern Democratic Party.

And to His Majesty, Barack Obama, whose arrogance and dismissiveness is like warm soup to a freezing blogger on a cold winter’s day (okay, not the best analogy, but I’m on a roll).

And to all the race card players, who prove that there is a thin line between insanity and genius, and who never cross the line into genius, thus keeping the Saturday Night Card Game going.

Special thanks go out to the readers.  Someone somewhere built this, waiting for you to come.  From bumper stickers to photos to Tips to comments, you keep this blog alive.

[insert obligatory thanks to the wife here]

But most of all, I wish to thank the government.  Without roads and bridges, I could not get to the house in whose basement I sit, pajama-clad, secure in the knowledge that the police the rest of you paid for will protect me from marauding bands.
