Raking In That Sweet, Sweet Blogcash…

Some time back, I mentioned that the longtime friends of this blog at Legal Insurrection have launched an academically-themed sister blog, College Insurrection (which you’ll find in the blogroll). Well, apparently others have noticed as well.

CI reports that a PoliSci prof at New Paltz is already wondering about the source of CI‘s funding. To which I say:

Really? This guy — a blogger himself, by the way — can’t fathom that there are bloggers who disagree, but aren’t bought and paid for? More to the point, I’m amused that he assumes that there’s some sort of funding office that supports the mighty conservative/libertarian propaganda blog machine.

More realistically, he’s trying to imply that blogs like CI (and I suppose, even mine in its small and random way) are phalanges of some dark conservative/libertarian cabal (one which, as this sentence indicates, owns a metaphor mixer set on “puree.”) That’s the great thing about conspiracy theories — they’re easier than trying to understand the way the world actually is.

That reminds me: Hey, Gormogons! When do I get to swim in your Scrooge McDuck cash vault? I’ll bring the floaties.
