Carnival of the Vanities #140
Hello and welcome to the Carnival of the Vanities #140. My name is Karol, you can read more about me here. Two plugs I have to make while I have your attention:
1. I co-host a weekly talk show called 'Hoist the Black Flag' with Ace of Spades on Rightalk.com every Tuesday from 4-5pm. You can listen to yesterday's show with guests Scott Johnson of Powerline and Daniel Pipes all weekend long.
2. If you're a Republican/conservative/whatever you want to call yourself that's not 'liberal' in New York, be sure to check out my other site, Rightevents.com.
The last time I hosted the Carnival, #88 exactly one year ago today by some odd coincidence, there were only 37 entries. Today there are 71. Enjoy!
