If any of my readers want to see how not to do a blog, please visit Libertarian Girl. I'd deliver the cutdowns myself, but why should I when Mr. X has done it so well?

I feel like a tool for defending her. Yes, we need more females in the movement. And I still think we need more non-intellectual brainiacs in the movement. But what we don't need is pseudo-intellectual, hyperrandian morons.

I mean, a pink background? C'mon!

UPDATE: Libertarian Girl has added a disclaimer to her blog:

Warning: the opinions expressed in this blog do not represent the official platform of the Libertarian Party. Read at your own risk
To be honest, although Mr. X and R question her libertarian credentials, I don't. She's quite clearly a libertarian. What you risk is being utterly bored by reading her blog. She is neither insightful nor entertaining. There's some controversy concerning her sexual exploits and whether it is inappropriate to include that in blogging. I think it's fair game; it's just not necessarily interesting. She's claiming she's the victim of sexist double standards, but I don't really see a lot of male bloggers talking about all the booty they get (I expect there's a DAMN good reason for this: male bloggers are nerds). Now, I've seen some female bloggers tell some damn good stories in the hot'n'wet gossip vein, but operative verb here: tell. Libertarian Girl can't write herself out of of a pink Victoria's Secret bag, and that's why her blog sucks. I'll probably check in every once in a while to see if she's improved, and if so I'll gladly eat crow, but I believe she just wants a soapbox and attention. Like R says, you can't help but look at the train-wreck aspect of the blog.
