All this time I thought they were called hissy fits...

Morse at Republic of Sestakastan tagged me (before he ran off to go partying) with this:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
The Rules of the Partisan Pissant Provocateur Award:
  1. Copy and link to this post (meaning these rules and the Award icon).
  2. Reflect on five bloggers who cause you to gnash your teeth when reading their posts, but who you nevertheless feel compelled to return to and read time and again. Write a short sincere (or not) paragraph about each one.
  3. Make sure you link this post so others can read it and the rules.
  4. Go leave your chosen bloggers a comment and let them know they’ve been given the award.
  5. Put the award icon on your site.
  6. Did I mention you should link this post?
This award should make you reflect on five bloggers who have motivated you to unleash fire breathing partisan posts of your own. Carefully crafted logical arguments and good writing are a bonus but don't overlook particularly sharp satire, biting snark, or a high octane flamer. Try to keep the quality high, but in a pinch, feel free to substitute your basic journeyman partisan hack.
Well... The last time I tagged people, many had already been tagged, and others did not want to play the tagging game. I also don't read many blogs that make me gnash my teeth, the news and Georgie himself make me do that.

How about I tag those (who may or may not respond) whose blogs I enjoy for their snark and their insight and my teeth rarely get gnashed...

1. Mustang Bobby of Bark Bark Woof Woof

2. Sorghum Crow of Sorghum Crow's General Store

3. Moonbootica of Devizes Melting Pot

4. Hipparchia of Over The Cliff, Onto The Rocks

5. Mapaghimagsik of Taking Stock at Drunk Duck

i make you gnash your teeth?! i didn't mean to!

oh, wait. maybe i'm just snarky and inciteful. and possibly a pissant. and how did you know i was just now talking with a good buddy about bloggers' need for validation? have you been eavesdropping on my e-nail?

i'm afraid one of the non-taggers, but because you're a sweet heart to think of me, i'll definitely come up with a list of 5 more bloggers for you.

Ack! No, hipparchia, you do not make me gnash my teeth! Only Bush and his crazed minions do that!

These tagging memes fly about the net and tend to boomerang back (look for this to come back this way in about 6 months or so...) Some people love them, others, not so much.

Some people play but will not send it on (like those horrid chain letters).

I did it just to play. Please have fun with it...

Mapaghimagsik, I will read them with pleasure!
