I have an important announcement to share with all of you!
You may have noticed, like I have, that whenever I post something related to politics, that people FLIP THE FREAK OUT in the comments. And I mean that in a good way. It’s obvious that you have strong political feelings, and you know I do as well. But after reviewing the results of the recent mockdock surveys, and taking into account the reasons you all visit The Mock Dock in the first place, I’ve decided that perhaps this isn’t the best place for those politically-driven posts.
So guess what! I, along with alert and astute mockdocker Daisy, am excited to announce the launch of a new website we’ve started together. This website will be my outlet for ranting about the state of the union, and so those of you who enjoy my rants can come visit, and those of you who hate my rants can just stay here. And those of you who hate my rants but want to post comments about them anyway because you like to fight with me are also welcome to visit the new site.
LET ME BE VERY CLEAR. The Mock Dock isn’t going anywhere. It’s going to keep on chugging along and I’m going to continue to mock all the same stuff you’re accustomed to me mocking. And you never know, I might not be able to contain myself and I may throw a political post on here now and then just to watch everyone FLIP THE FREAK OUT again. But our new website will be specifically devoted to politics – the lighter, mockier side of politics, but politics nonetheless.
You know what I’ve learned from posting political stuff here? It’s just not “hip” to be a conservative anymore. So, of course the liberals elected themselves a rock-star. The alternative was the stereotypical stodgy-old white guy. Daisy and I believe that the conservative movement needs to break through that stereotype, jump into this century, and get its collective butt in gear from a technological and public relations standpoint. Starting our new website is the only way we know how to help compete with the media’s deification of our new rockstar President. We conservatives AREN’T all country-music-blaring, heat-packing, bible-thumping, rich WASPs with trust funds. And we think there are others out there like us – stiletto and Sephora-wearing chicks (and guys who love them) who believe in a healthy respect for government while understanding that it’s the people who are the only ones who should be responsible for giving strength to our government.
So here’s the thing. We have decided to do our part to help re-brand the conservative party by launching our new site which will freely poke fun at the political process and all of its related people and parts. Because you know me – no matter what, I’m all about the mockery.
Mockdockers – whether you’re a liberal or conservative or anything in between, you are welcome to visit:
I now return you to your regularly scheduled mocking.
