Okay, call me a rube, but my obscure little blog doesn’t get linked everyday in Tweets by national talking heads like Paul Begala. So when it happens, I have to take a moment to feel self-important, before I slink back to my dark corner of the world.
Yes, Paul (I call him “Paul” now) links to among the least unique posts I’ve ever penned. (And trust me, there is plenty of competition for that honor.) Yes, it is surely his first and last visit to WWP. Yes, this happened because of Rick Weiland’s great work, not mine.
But still, a sideways glance from Paul freakin’ Begala makes a backwater gadfly’s little heart go pitter-patter, and page views go through the roof.
I’m thinking I’m probably now on his holiday card list, right?
