I’ve taken the “Who Is Atrios” poll down. Thanks to everyone who voted. Here are the results. I’ll be sure to drop a line to Kaus and let him know.


Name                Votes    Pct
================================
Mahir!                 56  26.8%
Sidney Blumenthal      37  17.7%
Bob Shrum              23  11.0%
Norah Vincent          21  10.0%
Mickey Kaus            19   9.1%
Christopher Hitchens   19   9.1%
Mark V. Shaney         18   8.6%
Jennifer Liberto       16   7.7%

UPDATE: Apparently, some people have never heard of Mahir! How soon they forget. Read up on one of the biggest net.celebrities of 1999.

I’m moderately surprised that no one asked who Mark V. Shaney is. Read about him here and here. Finally, Jennifer Liberto was the writer of a much ridiculed piece that attempted to unmask the woman who runs Media Whores Online. One of the people she emailed with questions while researching that article was…Atrios. Coincidence? I report, you decide.

    Mickey Kaus? Christopher Hitchens? What were those 38 people smoking?

  2. David Ehrenstein says:

    Isn’t it obvious that Artrios is really Charlie Kaufman ?

  3. Drat. I was hoping Atrios was Madelyn Murray Hoffa. I mean, weren’t the antlers and Peterbilt jock strap a dead give-away?

    Personally, I don’t give a damn who Atrios is, but I’m curious what he does for a living that allows him the time and energy to marathon blog. The guy seems to be chained to his computer all hours.

  6. Brian says:

    Atrios has a team of bloggers to keep it updated throughout the day.

    Whoever Atrios is, he is one of the best bloggers—if not THE BEST blogger—going.

    Your Mahir link is botched. There is a good article on the phenomenon here (NYT link).

  13. The Mahir link is fixed. It was a copy’n’paste error. Thanks for the catch!
