Ah, fame

Blog long enough and sooner or later you'll be a result in enough Google searches to really get noticed and/or become a pain in the butt to anyone trying to find good data. However you slice it, The Register picked up and linked to this post of mine in which I recounted the results of my silly "Who Is Atrios?" poll in an article they wrote about the settling of the Atrios/Luskin tete-a-tete. Thanks, guys! I promise to use my newfound fame for good and not for evil. Thanks also to Michael, who was kind enough to point this out to me last night.

For those of you who tuned in late, my poll and several of its choices were inspired by Mickey Kaus, who on December 17 (you have to scroll down to get there) half-jokingly wondered if Atrios was really Sidney Blumenthal. It's been a running gag ever since in Atrios' comments.

By the way, if you want to know what that mysterious "joint statement" between Atrios and Luskin was about, Dwight Meredith explains it quite well.

UPDATE: Atrios has some more info on that joint statement along with a plea to give to a relevant worthy cause. Check it out.
