New Blogroll Additions: A Ginormous Update

A lot of people say they're happy to add new additions to their blog rolls. Personally, I think that's a lot of bullshit.

Basically, linking other bloggers means giving attention to your direct competitors. When I go into a GM dealership, the salesman doesn't walk me over the Toyota lot and suggest that I check out the new Camry. And yet, in blogging, I'm supposed to just graciously deflect away all the attention and validation I so desperately crave to some other dude.

Oh, well. Just another one of those crazy "rules" our so-called "society" imposes on us, like the requirement that keep their pants on in mixed company. On this one point, I'm in perfect agreement with Ted Kennedy. It's not always a sexual thing-- sometimes it's just about comfort.

And convenience.

All of the new bloggers get the Ace of Spades HQ stamp of approval. They've got good links and interesting ideas. Some are analysts; some are humorists; some are incorrigible rapscallions. Unless I'm mistaken, there's even one or two ribald jackanapes on the list.

And some are Hugh Hewitt who, apart from being a fine commentator and an important voice in the conservative movement, could probably also finagle me Ann Coulter's phone number.

A few of these bloggers already are getting a lot of attention; others are going to garner attention. Some of these people might even wind up as beloved television hosts. Meanwhile, I -- long-suffering I -- will languish in unrewarded obscurity; the closest I'll ever come to celebrity will remain the time I inadvertently received a cable bill addressed to Tacklebury from the Police Academy movies.

If I didn't link you and you think I should have, drop me a line. I'm sure I missed people here and there. Also, some of the people I "welcome" below have actually been on the list for a couple of months, but I never actually welcomed them, so I'm welcoming them now.

For one blogger -- Sydney T of Sydney T's Weblog -- I offer both a welcome and an apology, for, although I've had her "linked" for months, I had a non-working link in the blogroll, which is sort of like having an Orbitrek in your apartment-- it looks nice and all, but it's utterly useless, except perhaps as a poorly-conceived towel-rack.

At any rate: I'm now pleased (not really) to welcome the following new additions to my blogroll.
