Sigh ... all right, I've been suckered yet again.


Apparently, there is no real conservative blogger "Dizzy Gillespie". It is, in fact, just our old buddy "Jay Gatsby" posting under a new pseudonym. Need proof?


Consider Mr. Gatsby's now-defunct blog "View of the Republic". Scroll down until you see his list of favorite links (what he calls the "Republic's Top Sites"):

  • American Lady
  • Blame Bush!
  • Free Iraqi
  • Impudent Finger
  • Iraq The Model
  • Jihad Watch
  • Little Green Footballs
  • Michelle Malkin
  • Road of a Nation
  • Sand in the Gears
  • Shock and Blog
  • The Captain's Quarters
  • The Dawn Patrol
  • The Story Teller
  • Wizbang
And over at Mr. Gillespie's blog, we have his list of "Gillespie's Links":
  • American Lady
  • Blame Bush!
  • Free Iraqi
  • Impudent Finger
  • Iraq The Model
  • Jihad Watch
  • Little Green Footballs
  • Michelle Malkin
  • Road of a Nation
  • Sand in the Gears
  • Shock and Blog
  • The Captain's Quarters
  • The Dawn Patrol
  • The Story Teller
  • Wizbang

Now, what are the odds that two people could have such similarly depressing, anti-intellectual tastes in other people's work?

And, yes, that's a rhetorical question.

Woah, I've been gone a while.

Dude, I am living right next to Gatsby... I use his accounts in many things.

Honsestly, the accusations.

I just sort of stole his, to be honest. He said he didn't mine and I hate making things like that. He's better at html.

Sory again about not replying, I've been away.
