Anne, Bookie, and ninme don't need no stink'n "BlogHer"

Anne, Bookie, and ninme are my three favorite XX bloggers (sorry FbL & Maggie, but they were with me almost from the beginning - but you're on Phib's "Nice" list). One thing I know about these dream women - they don't need this junk.

FOR two days last week, many of the men’s bathrooms at the Westin St. Francis Hotel here were turned into women’s bathrooms. The stalls on the second floor were lined with note cards featuring nurturing messages like “You are perfect.” Nearby, women were being dusted with blush and eye shadow, or having the kinks in their necks massaged.

There was a lactation room, child care, and onesies for sale emblazoned with the words “my mom is blogging this.” No doubt they were.

Last weekend, about a thousand bloggers, almost all without the Y chromosome, attended the annual BlogHer conference, which began in 2005 to help female bloggers gain exposure. It has since evolved into a corporate-sponsored Oprah-inflected version of a ’60s consciousness-raising group.


There were tears at many emotional panels, and also much hooting and applause, whether in response to news that Michelle Obama had just written her first blog post on the BlogHer Web site or that Michelin would be giving away a set of tires.

There were also more than 40 brands, including General Motors and K-Y Jelly, sponsoring the BlogHer event in hopes of connecting with the scene’s microcelebrities.
GMAFB. What they want is more LIBERAL XX blogs. Identity politics runneth amok; we should send Skippy, MTH, and LBG to the next one so they can "live-blog" all the good self-help going on.

They dont' even mention
MichelleMalkin - a XX who stands athwart the blogosphere like, well, take that visual any way you want. She is so huge, even Allah works for her.

Silly chick whine fest - not worthy of the women I love, respect and admire. Mrs. Salamander harumphs at you!

Oh, and if K-Y Jelly is looking for the right place to advertise, well, every Sailor has a story .....
