Nothing is so admirable in politics as a short memory.

Seems Althouse has gone kerflooey due to the Great Blogger Blargle of 2011 (more commonly known as Breda's Mini Vacation) and things being what they are on the internet, some of her fans are convinced that the powers-that-be at Google have some sort of vendetta against her because she is such a powerful conservative blogger.

But...Ann Althouse voted for Obama.

You'd think they'd have had her blog enshrined with its own personal server by now.

You have me laughing so hard. I love it. Now, Meade, after Obama's daring raid into Pakistan; regrets his vote for McCain.

Althouse is a bit more conservative since she married her reader Meade, and has expressed regret over her decision to vote for Obama back in 2008.

Her original and unbiased reporting in the protests against Gov. Scott Walker, though, has made her a number of enemies on the Left in local Madison, WI politics.

I don't think that this means that Google is trying to damage or delete her blog, however. I usually tend to favor incompetence over bad intentions in such cases as this.

Heinlein's (or, if you insist, Hanlon's) Razor:

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity, but don't rule out malice.

Then there's Grey's Law:

Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.

Apparently being conservative didn't save her from the stupidity of getting caught up in the "Hope & Change"

Her fans have completely overreacted.

I won't miss Althouse's blog. I only stumble onto it accidently when Reynolds links to her without a disclaimer. If she wants to continue nobody's stopping her from using TypePad and WordPress.

Now, Tamara throwing in the towel? That's a blow.

Breda, thank you for mentioning she voted for Obama...i'll never read her blog again...like my sister that voted for him, she's dead in my eyes and mind.
