I saw the Steve Levy column in Newsweek about the White Male Domination (WMD) of blogging – apparently at the expense of women – and couldn’t wait to post about this capital offense under a headline such as White Man Blogging. However, my fellow Brotherhood of Man member Jeff Jarvis beat me to it. Not only that, but he said it better than I could. He also said too much.
See, Jeff is very smart, but if he were truly astute he’d know that the only appropriate thing he could say to appease a certain element, other than “Please pass the hemlock,” is “I’m sorry.” Furthermore, the more often you say it, and the more abject you are, the better.
So here, on behalf of Jeff and all the other selfish white guys hogging the ether, allow me to say:
I’m sorry I’m a white guy.
I’m sorry we get all the good ideas and strong opinions.
I’m sorry we’ve created secret handshakes and other signals that allow us cheap access to blog hosting services while making everyone else pay through the nose.
I’m sorry we’ve erected barriers even higher than the MSM to keep out the unwashed, untrained and undesireable.
I’m sorry if you’ve never heard of Michelle Malkin , LaShawn Barber or The Patriette.
I’m sorry that every state doesn’t have a MAWB Squad chapter – yet.
I’m sorry that I’m not more in touch with my feminine side when blogging. (Really, I’d like to be and certainly would be if it wasn’t for the restraining order. But I notice the Night Writer likes to wear skirts, based on what’s in the “About” section of this blog.)
I’m just so sorry.
Minfidel, it’s a kilt, not a skirt.
