Nominations for Top Right-of-Center Male Bloggers.

The Cotillion will be sponsoring a promotion of conservative male bloggers, because the male sector of the b-sphere is under-promoted.

Please try to remember that just because a guy has a pretty face, it doesn't mean he's qualified. We'd like to see some fresh analysis as well.

We're not just looking for conservative bloggers who are male, by the way: we'd also like to see some thoughtful coverage of men's issues: football, baseball, getting grossed out by the leavings of makeup and menses, power tools, weak beer, misunderstanding things women say, pretending not to be able to feed oneself, and the like.

Please leave your suggestions in the comments.

I feel really guilty that we female bloggers get all the attention and the dudes are always treated as niche bloggers. I'm so glad we're doing this!

It's the least we can do; I have a feeling of noblesse oblige about this.

Justifying John's opinion, I see... ;>

Noblesse Oblige? Doesn't it always trend toward the Chippendales when the Cotillion is involved?

Those poor, poor dancers. Forced to do that to make a buck.

We always tip as much as we can. If we have anything left after the drink tab's paid, that is . . .

Posted by: Attila Girl at March 31, 2008 07:56 PM

Like if there's EVER anything left!

You're not fooling me! You tip in pennies just to make those costumes fall apart faster. Is it any wonder that those poor guys usually enroll in trade school or the seminary after a Cotillion night out? No wonder your pictures are posted at the door! Or so I've read. . .

We're wanted, dead or alive.

But mostly alive. ;)

Always! Either way I think the gin tab would be the same! That may be why they're building two new distilleries in Heaven, btw. Or so I've read. Or did I see it on Benny Hinn?

Posted by: Darrell at March 31, 2008 09:14 PM

I used to see "Benny Hinn" in the TV Guide and assume it was a typo, and they meant "Benny Hill."

Yipes! Stay away from the Woundup!

If "men's issues" are defined as "football, baseball, getting grossed out by the leavings of makeup and menses, power tools, weak beer" and such, I'm not a player. I DO misunderstand what women say, but it's usually because they say it while I'm wasting ti... thoroughly engrossed in a highly important thing involving my computer, and I sometimes don't quite catch what was said. I have one (count 'em) power tool that helped me build the cheap Home Depot bookcases that currently adorn our home.

Otherwise, my views are, essentially, that professional athletes are overpaid whiners and drug abusers, my wife is menopausal and never wears makeup (doesn't need any), and I have never in nearly 50 years had an alchoholic beverage (unless you count the old Robitussins).

Good luck finding male conservatives who are thoughtful about anything. Especially when they've been drinking weak beer. Talk about setting the bar a titch high...

It's possible that I distorted the intent ever-so-slightly, for comic effect.

What I say shouldn't be taken as a gospel representation, therefore, of the Cotillion's intent . . .

Posted by: Attila Girl at April 1, 2008 01:09 PM

Well, that makes me feel better.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
