The National Review Online has a new ‘blog’ like thing called the Corner. Welcome Folks. Unfortunately, they refuse to call it a blog. So, in order to help them, I have here the top ten reasons why it is not really a blog, at least in the sense that I think of them:
10.) Multiple sentences with polysyllabic terms.
9.) No rants, as of yet.
8.) 3, sometimes 4 sentences in a row without a link.
7.) No Permanent Links, but they are working on it (I emailed them and got a pleasant response from a Mr. Bailey).
6.) 34 posts, and the phrase ‘Yasser Arafat is an unrepentant scum-sucking terrorist’ has not been uttered.
5.) Posts stopped at 5:33 pm. It is 8:10 as I write this, and it appears that the NRO crew prefers food and martinis OVER blogging.
4.) 34 posts, and not one hyperlink to Instapundit, Ken Layne, Matt Welch, or the Opinion Journal (they did link Mark Steyn, so there is hope).
3.) Bill Buckley can not figure out how to connect his Underwood typewriter to the internet.
2.) No link to Natalija at Samizdata.
1.) They are bloggin while, (not instead of) working, and probably already turning a profit.
