Independent Political Report Turns Two Years Old

Yes, folks, two full years of anti-establishment political party and candidate news, views and commentary. During that time, according to sitemeter, we have had over 1.1 million visitors with over 3.1 million pageviews, and close to 89,000 comments on almost 5,500 posts.

In other news, your faithful correspondent, Paulie, am turning two for the nineteenth time today. That was probably garbled sentence structure, but hey, what do you want from a two year old?

Finally, IPR writer Darcy Richardson and former IPR editor Austin Cassidy have launched Uncovered Politics. We hope you’ll give their new site a look.

    I apologize in advance for anything that may be described as “posting while intoxicated.” How many two year olds do you know who can hold their liquor?

    So far, Bailey’s, Courvoisier, Hennessy and Grey Goose, in case anyone is keeping track πŸ˜›

    It’s a shame it took a scam (HammerOfTruth.com) and a now-defunct ThirdPartyWatch.com to produce IPR, but I have to say, this is by far the most informative, engaging, entertaining third party/independent news blog I’ve read.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks to all the readers. And thanks to authors, who have picked up the number of posts this week.

    Yes, folks, two full years of anti-establishment political party and candidate news, views and commentary.

    Hey, what do you know? Most of it’s commentary.

  8. paulie Post author

    Yes Spence, we publish opinions from candidates and parties, and we publish commentaries from elsewhere that cover our subject matter. We also post opinions in the comment sections ourselves, and allow others (including ingrates such as yourself) a place to do so as well.

    But, we have only done one IPR editorial per se.

    You have always been free to start a better website, just as you have always been free to start a better political party. You’ve even skulked off a few times vowing never to return.

    And yet you keep coming back. Why is that?

    I notice a pattern here. You comment on my articles, usually derisively. I don’t comment on yours, because I don’t read them. Hmmm.
