Ok - so after just posting about a snarky headline (which is still great), Stacy McCain brings up a very important point in his post News Flash: Politics Is About Elections.
There has never been any doubt in my mind that the person that can (in most cases) generate the most political snark and nonsense is going to have the highest hit counter. Stacy brings up the point that when he is generating the most important election news his hit counter actually goes down. I have noticed the same phenomena. Give his article a read and definitely give it some thought.
