Rand Paul Cruising in KY Primary Battle

Rand Paul, the libertarian Republican son of Texas Congressman Ron Paul, appears to be solidly beating his opponent, Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson. Once again, we're not really fans of Paul or his New Isolationism. We still hope that Grayson will pull it out next Tuesday, but it does not appear so.
 
Republicans (May 9-11, 440 GOP LV, MoE +/- 4.8%)
Paul 49 (+4 vs. last poll, April 12)
Grayson 33 (+3)
Und 11
What a shame.

Hey, I've got a question about your satire articles.

Since it seems that you've been blacklisted by the conservative blogosphere after the College Thesis story, how do you hope to reach a wide enough audience to believe those stories?

Dear Anon,
Thank you for writing to us. Your comments are very important to us.

To answer your question, this is not a satire piece. Unfortunately, it is true that Rand Paul is actually beating Trey Grayson. We apologize for the outlandish premise of the story, but it is true.

My question was not about this piece in particular. It was about all your satire, and really this blog in general.

I know that you are in the rumor-spreading business. But how do you intend to reach a wide audience if the rest of the conservative blogosphere has blacklisted you?

Check out the top bar under the header. All of our satire pieces can be found there. As for a wider audience, Lucianne lists us as one of the top 100 conservative blogs. We're doing alright. Except for Gateway Pundit and LGF and some tiny blogs no one has blacklisted us.
