Skippy the Bush Kangaroo Awareness Week

I was leafing through Matt Bai's new book in Borders today, and there was a whole section puffing up the Great Orange Satan. Unfortunately, it seemed like there was a cheap shot at the expense of us lesser bloggers, with Skippy the Bush Kangaroo serving as punching bag. In retaliation my organization, The Center for Sticking Up for Non-A List Bloggers is announcing Skippy the Bush Kangaroo Awareness Week. I'm hoping all fifteen of my regular readers will head over there and show him some love.

Non "A" list?

I'm not even a "Q" list.

Now I'm going over to my blog and add you to my blogroll.

hey kid,

first, thanks for the skippy the bush kangaroo awareness week! i am flattered.

but, bai didn't actually mention skippy by name, did he?

if he did, i would subscribe to oscar wilde's theory, that the only thing worse than being talked about, is not being talked about.

muchas gracias, mi amigo!

TKK. You are a good man.
Proud to know you.

P.S. That doesn't mean that I wouldn't fight you for Athenae if Mr. A was out of the picture.

is this somehow connected to Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week? If so, I would just like to vouch for skippy. Though he may seem dangerous, I don't think he's part of an international conspiracy to bring down Western Civilization.

Indeed. Even your secret identity is revealed!
