Bloggers and Their Parents' Basements

Sarah Palin knows that bloggers who are critical of her are blogging from their parent’s basements (comment start’s at 1:00).

Yes, yes and we're in our pajamas and we're eating Cheetos. I feel like such an outsider not having parents with a basement and never wearing pajamas. I do like Cheetos (who doesn’t!) but I don’t think I’ve ever blogged while eating them.

I really don't care what Sarah Palin or the Illinois Times think because mom says my blog is awesome. :)

That’s right. The Illinois Times holds the same perception of bloggers as Sarah Palin. Stereotypes make for strange bedfellows.

reminds me of a time in college. One night I was a wee bit drunk and was ready to hit the hay when I realized I had left my cellphone in my girlfriend's car, which just happened to be parked outside my dorm. Being in my boxers at 4am, I thought it would be safe to just run down, get my phone and run back to safety. Needless to say, I forgot to take my room and dorm key with me and was locked out.

By the time Monday morning came around, there were unsubstantiated reports that I had gotten plastered and had streaked across the campus. After constant harassment, I said enough was enough and if my fans wanted a show, I would give them a show; I did not streak across campus, but the lesbians on the second floor of my dorm got a reminder of why they made the right lifestyle choice.

Like many of us bloggers, I am tired of the Illinois Times and individuals like Sarah Palin insulting us with comments like "naked bloggers in their parents' basements," etc. I own my own house, actually two and I had a very good job up until August in which I was able to buy a Mustang Convertible and a 2008 Toyota Corolla. Not trying to brag, just showing that I, like many bloggers, are not the stereotypical virgin losers who play videogames all day, are 30 and still live in their parents' basements.

All it will take, I think, is someone to actually blog naked, with their deed taped to the computer, and possibly eating Cheetos, to shut these ass-clowns up.
