“Carnival Of The Elitist Bastards” request for submissions

May 9, 2008

Gathering posts for a brand-new Blog Carnival, Dana at En Tequila Es Verdad says; “Gather ‘Round, Ye Elitist Bastards”…

…It’s time we took the word “elite” back… I think it’s time for the masses to aspire to some of that vaunted wisdom rather than trying to flatten the bell curve with a sledgehammer.

I think it’s time we stop letting our culture celebrate willful ignorance and start promoting genius instead.

Well yeah… I remember when creative and scientific genius was more celebrated than it is today.  When Einstein and Salk were national heroes and national magazines actually engaged in fairly decent journalism on science and the arts.  I’m getting pretty tired of cultivated hatred for People Who Actually Know What They’re Talking About.  Check out Dana’s post and consider participating – this is going to be fun!  (So much material to work with)

    I’m so down with the Nascar!  LOL.  Little known fact, but I actually enjoy a good race, and my dear ol’ Dad used to race go-carts with A.J. Foyt.

    Being an elitist bastard, however, I’ll have to plump for a glass of Syncline Syrah.  ;-)

    Thanks for getting the word out, George!  I’m begging all of you all, please pretty please submit!  I’m putting up a further post with the email, etc. – you’ll find it on the site soon.  I’ve got a couple of folk chomping at the bit, but we need a lot of attractions to make this carnival a success!  Elitist bastards of the world, unite!

    Methinks this is an idea whose time has come.
