The Jersey Exile mentions yours truly in his post Just Guys With Blogs, in which he mentions the amazing insincerity of Daily Kos who seems to think he's just a regular old blogger like the rest of us...

when will people like Markos Moulitsas stop treating us fleabloggers like we're town fools? does he honestly think we're that gullible?? him? a regular blogger??? oh, puh-leeze!!

I don't know whether to laugh, cry or throw up over that one.

Jersey also points out Jarvis' change of heart these days....yet, like Jersey, I'm not sure that trying to change the conversation re blog ranking to one of the value of trust over content is going to change all that much in the blogosphere. There's a bit more to it than that.

I think I'm going to have to start reading some of these big-time bloggers--not because I trust their content is so great, but because they're just so massively insincere--kind of like the popular girls they couldn't date in high school....

Go get 'em, Tish. Recall this strategy? (Really I should link to mediagirl direct: http://mediagirl.org/article/media-girl/2005/08/suck-it-up-mix-it-up-link-it-out).

Thanks for posting the links, S.D...the insincerity of big-time bloggeres just boggles me. Why play the "little man" card when we can all pretty much figure out that you're not? It's massively insulting.
