You may have noticed that the site has been having problems for a few days. I don’t know if someone hacked into the site (again), or if it is the victim of a denial of service attack, or whatever. I’ve spent a few days trying to fix it but so far have failed.
The biggest problem is that I’m starting a new company, and I don’t have enough time to fix the blog right now (the last time this happened, it took weeks of hard work). Sorry, but I’m giving up.
It has been a great run. I started this blog in May 2008 and expected to do this maybe up until the election. But then you happened. I’ve made new friends, and have reconnected with old friends who found the blog. I’ve gone to parties and had people come up to me and tell me that they discovered this cool new blog, not knowing it was me who ran it (how crazy is that?). I have gotten so much out of this. Thank you all.
If you need a political humor fix, I recommend looking at Matt Bors’ new site The Nib at https://medium.com/the-nib.
I’ll take the site down in a few days, but I’ll put up a list of other sources of political humor. Meanwhile, try the links.
If I ever decide to do something similar, I’ll post information in the Political Irony facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Political-Irony/329374495445, and on twitter at https://twitter.com/politicalirony.

UPDATE: Just posted something to the blog and it worked (mostly). So I may continue to post things on and off.
