Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, December 13, 2021

So now that I know that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad maintains a blog, I’m thinking about adding him to my blogroll.

Hey, traffic is traffic. I’ll overlook the social repression (ironically, against other bloggers in Iran) if Ahmadinejad throws back some reciprocal-linkin’ love. I’ll end up with a bunch of comments in Farsi, but you can’t be too picky when it comes to user-generated content anyway.

Besides, it all comes back to the overriding maxim when it comes to blogosphere relations:
ass essed
Actually, take that phrase — “Most bloggers are assholes we just pretend to like each other because it’s good for traffic” — and sub in “politicians” for “bloggers”, and “power” for “traffic”, and you’ve got your overriding maxim for international relations, too. Maybe all world leaders should keep a blog!
