From all over the world, we just reached a milestone here at Connecticut Bob. As of yesterday, this blog has officially received a half-million hits!

While this pales in comparison to other higher-profile blogs, and a major number of those hits are from Google searches, I'm still amazed that anyone at all reads this thing!

Credit is due in part to Kirby, who brings a good bit of class to this otherwise unruly collection of rants, diatribes, and goofy observations, peppered with at times agonizing videos and amateurish photoshopped images.

...and, every now and again (but very rarely), a somewhat astute reflection or canny insight makes its tortured way from deep within my gray matter onto your computer screen. Sorry about all that other bullshit you have to wade through to find the occasional gem, but you should think of it like an Easter egg hunt, where the search for goodness is just part of the fun!

2010 is shaping up to be a real humdinger, and we're looking forward to yet another exciting year of political intrigue and drama! Thanks everyone for reading!

Oh no, not the HUMDINGER! I'm already starting to go gray, and I don't have a big fancy sailboat to ride out the storm like you do... :-)

Just keep those gems coming.

Wow, half a million.

Amazing - are you saying there are people "from all over the world" that don't live in Egypt, or Connecticut, reading your blog? Haha, just kidding. Congrats on the milestone.

You've been doing awesome work for a long time, CB. I never said anything, because I barely have time to post on my own blog, much less comment on others, but this has long been one of my favorite blogs. Congrats.

I think you need a Max Yasgur style video clip praising your readers for coming together for half a million hits in search of fun and politics, and nothing but fun and politics.

Half a million is quite an achievement. Congratulations.

Who is this? This isn't Bob x--?

Who is this nutjob anyway?

OK I am really going to bed now. When I wake up I am going to try to vote in Mass.

I got my fake ID all ready.

LOL! Hey, I never claimed every single hit was totally deserved.

But, YOU read my blog.

So I must be doing something right!
