The most read "Althouse" blog posts, you mean. For a second I thought of the entire web.

I think this shows an interest in news about misbehavior/thuggery on the part of left.

This tidbit initially caught my eye from #1:

Meade and I both keep a Google alert on my name.

It would be interesting to total up the pros and cons re: your name. :D

Nothing about me? Damn:

I demand a recount!

Just curious, but why a Top 9? Isn't a Top 10 more customary for these sorts of things?

Since most of her commenters have come from referred links form other blogs, that's never been a problem for her.

Fabulous job, Meadhouse. Hopefully, a year from now, we can gripe about what a weenie President-elect Romney is going to be. Happy New Year!

"referred links"

As did I and didn't say it was a problem unless you were just stating your opinion re: her readership.

I was using a Blogger resource that had the top 10 of all time, and all but 1 are this year.

Wish I had a better resource, but that's all I had.
