lolAJ NEEDS UR HELP!

In the spirit of feminist inquiry, AJ is doing some QUALITATIVE PARTICIPATORY RESEARCH. The project: Describe Obama's speech on race USING ONLY ONE WORD!!!1


Submissions thus far include:

"inspirational!"
"well-played"
"dreamy"
"facts."
"yai" (yay?)
"omgdidyouhearabouttropicthunder"
"vague"
"wut?"

AJ thinks if the discussions amongst commenters on other blogs/sites/etc could be distilled down to one word, they would also be saying:

Jack and Jill: "awsum!!!!
Angry Black Woman: "MOAR!"
Feministing: "WOMEN!!!"
Racialicious: "rabblerabblerabblerabble"
Too Sense: "Ok!"
John Derbyshire: "zomgLIES!" (zomg! racism)
Maureen Dowd: "strategery."




HALP! WUT DO U THINK????

i am very pleased by this mode of analysis. it is a refreshing break from ALL OTHER POLITICAL BLOGS. just as you hoped, AJ, you have filled a unique niche of the blogosphere -- the only rad/prog blog with a sense of HUMOR.

AJ said...

ok that is more than one word.

Rebecca said...

Yeah. But she used the phrase "unique nice of the blogosphere," which makes up for it.

And I'm not sure that shutting down compliments from your ask-a-lesbian (especially criticizing nell's loquacity) is best way to seed your column.

Oh, sorry. This is me, too, failing to participate in your brilliant analytical scheme.
