What a Wonkette Link Looks Like

As some of you know, my post on the poor taste shown by our national legislators in grandstanding about gas prices was linked by the popular political site, Wonkette, last Friday. The traffic here boomed late in the day, and continued to stay high until today, when it dropped closer to normal levels. Here is the visit graph from last Friday.

And here is the graph of monthly traffic, to give it context.

This was the first time I have ever been linked by one of the "A-list" political sites. It came out of the blue, since I had not sought a link. It was a pleasant surprise, and I hope that some of the new visitors will come back.
