Another Dubious Kerry Tale

(Note: This was originally posted at Kerry Haters and is being posted here since I forgot and left this blog in the http section of Captain's Quarters comments. If you'd like to read it over there, here's the link.)

From a New York Times article on Kerry's loss in a congressional race in 1972:

Months later, a sympathetic profile in The Worcester Telegram summed up Mr. Kerry's predicament on a day he had been doing errands, ran out of gas, then headed to the car wash. "All of a sudden, water started washing over my shoes!" Mr. Kerry explained in the article. "The car was filling up with water! Water was coming out of every orifice! I could see the headlines: 'John Kerry, Former Congressional Candidate, Drowned in Car Wash.'"

Okay, we know the pattern of Kerry's tall tales by now. Anybody remember an incident like this in a movie or TV sit-com? Because that's where this came from.

That's one thing the two senators from Massachusetts have in common--they've both been in a car that was filling up with water.

Oh, Boo-Hoo-Hoo!

Wow, this is truly a sad story:

Relatives of Zeinab Abu Salem had little time to absorb the shock after the 18-year-old blew herself up in a suicide attack in Jerusalem.

They rushed instead to empty the family home in the Palestinian refugee camp of Askar near the West Bank city of Nablus, expecting Israeli bulldozers to soon come to demolish it.

Those mean Israelis!

Blog Growth

Over at my other blog (which will, I hope, become defunct in about 43 days), I've been eagerly anticipating breaking into the Top 100 blogs on the Truth Laid Bear traffic rating. That hasn't happened yet, in fact we are slipping down every so slightly (currently at 129; we were at 123 about 10 days ago).

This doesn't mean that the traffic is not growing at that blog. In fact, we're up over 20% in the last couple weeks. It's just that the blogosphere is growing just as fast, if not faster. I took a look at what the daily traffic was at various rankings over the last few weeks. The results were somewhat staggering: The traffic at blogs is exploding.

Consider the following. On September 2, the #1 ranked blog under the TTLB system (either Instapundit or Daily Kos) had 249,000 visitors daily. Today, the #1 ranked blog had over 300,000 visitors, a 20% increase in traffic in only 18 days. And that is actually one of the smaller increases over that period. The 50th ranked blog on 9/2 had about 5,300 visitors; today's 50th ranked blog had 8,800 visitors, a 65% increase. On average, it looks to me like the average increase has been about 33% in eighteen days!

That's staggering. If any major newspaper had been able to increase its circulation by 33% over the course of a full year, its staff would be getting million dollar offers from other papers.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
