Let’s take stock for a second, shall we? Wonkette has managed to put up enough posts to push Megan’s farewell to the second page. Sort of like the putting up the bullshit Ron Paul blimp post right above her farewell like minutes after she posted it (and with no by-line - hmmmmm, how strange).
So tomorrow the boycott/blackout/cockblock - whatever you want to call it - starts in earnest. We know that the Gawker overlords love pageviews and comments, so we need to deprive them of pageviews and comments until the wrongs of Friday have been addressed to our satisfaction. If this weekend is any kind of preview, this should not only work, but it should be pretty fucking fantastic. Wonkette has been as dry as fucking toast, and while the liveblog of WALNUTS! victory speak got over 1,000 views, as of my last checking it got 13 comments? Wow. And comrade Peggy Nooner has been leaving some brilliant pissed off HFA propaganda behind.
Which brings me to...
Now we are all adults and the Homofascist Army is not know for being disciplined ALL of the time, so if you need to make some quick strikes in enemy territory and pull some insurgent guerrilla goodness, I am not going to be mad at you. I can’t say the same for comrade Blogenfreude, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time. In fact I think I should be mentally ready to post the blog’s url in a comment or two (y’all, I have been deluged with emails - it has been crazy). If you do decide to leave a comment, please at least indicate your support of the cause. I have a feeling the people we want to be paying attention to us will be doing so. For those of you who will not visit at all, which I highly encourage, I will be checking in and letting you know what is going on, and perhaps capture a few choice comments (or lack thereof).
There has been some debate about continuing to comment on Megan’s farewell. I personally think the goal of 1000 comments is noble and fantastic and will actually benefit Megan and show what we can do (1,000 comments on Wonkette? Unreal). But there are those that don’t want to give pageviews, and I respect that too. So I wanted to do a little poll to help flesh out the official HFA position on the matter, because without your input, I am a dumbass. But I can't figure out how to do that (technical assistance please), so for now please just sound off in the comments.
So rest up. Drink up. Watch some football (Go Bears! Wait, what?). The battle begins for reals tomorrow, and I need my troops hungover and cranky. And for those of you that have the day off tomorrow, can I just say FUCK YOU. My company doesn’t care about black people.
