We at 23/6 have long subscribed to the Carvillian philosophy that "it's the economy, you stupid douchebag" [sic]. And if what's good for web traffic is good for America, then Sarah Palin is great for America. Our "unique visitors" stats more than doubled* in the month A.S. (after Sarah). Drudge also more than doubled traffic while Huffington Post nearly tripled theirs. In case you haven't heard, the internet is the future.
*H/t to the search phrase "palin porn."
