It's All About Me.

It really is.

The Real Ugly American was kind enough to do an interview with me yesterday as part of his blogger-interview series. We talked about sports, MSM, how I became conservative, the Townhall/Salem merger, Haditha, all my liberal friends, and my sense of humor.

He asked me where I got my sense of humor and this is what I told him:

I know exactly where it came from. When I was seven my teeth grew in at about a 45 degree angle to the ground. My front four teeth, and I could not close my mouth until I was 17 years old after four years of braces, and in the intervening time, no one could take me seriously with teeth like that, so you just had to joke.

And I am not exaggerating; I couldn't close my mouth until I was 17. My dad always said the upside was I could eat corn on the cob through a picket fence. He’s a loving father.

Thanks, Dad! It's all true. I can provide pictures if necessary.

And, there's this about the new Townhall site, debuting this summer:

TUA: Well I was going to ask you about that whole thing. This merger or Salem buying Townhall.com, is that going to be the new conservative juggernaut?

MKH: Yeah I really think it is. It has the potential to be really huge. What we are doing is, we’ve got the town hall basis of a million and a half uniques a month something like that. And then the five Salem hosts were going to bring on to Townhall.com...and all of those five Salem Hosts have six to nine millions listeners a week.

MKH: and so we will have user blogs, and ways to get in touch with Senators, and make your own newsletter, all of the sort of action center items you had on George W. Bush.com because the guy who is building this was his director of E-campaigns.

I hope y'all enjoy learning more about me than you ever wanted to know. And thanks to The Real Ugly American for including me in the ranks of his many talented interview subjects.
