Delightfully cruel piece from Cathy Seipp about unpopular LA-area bloggers Martini Republic:

“As most habitual readers are well aware,” they noted huffily, “Martini Republic does not accept political advertisements.” I remarked in their comments that I wasn’t aware Martini Republic didn’t accept political ads, just assumed they didn’t get any, which I suppose was kind of nasty but also maybe a good deed; the MR folks work themselves into a lather pretty regularly about me and other L.A. bloggers they deem too far right—including, absurdly, disappointed Kerry-voter Mickey Kaus—but they obviously put a lot of effort into the enterprise and almost never get comments, which always makes me feel a little sad.

Read the whole piece to discover why the Martini gang deserved a slap. And check out this wounded reply.
