Unless it like, totally sucks around here, or unless John totally assplodes the site because of tonight’s results, Balloon-Juice will reach 9,000,000 visitors. Drop by and say hi. If I can, I’ll try to figure out from Sitemeter who the 9 millionth visitor is. There’ll be a nice prize. Meanwhile, if you’re sick of primaries, NBC is airing the Best of Chris Farley. I’d forgotten how funny he was.
Update -April 23, 10:39 EST: If you look at the Sitemeter button on the bottom part of the left frame, you’ll see how close you are. I’m thinking later in the day today.
yo! i read via rss. i don’t know if that counts toward any vistor count, but here i am so count me in.
And fuck Hillary.
Hola! Que tal?
That’s always likely. I’d curse out WordPress, but I’m scared to jinx something.

Oh, hi Michael! Gosh, have I ever told you that you’re my favourite Canadian poster here?
Hello. Good site; informative.
I only hope I can be as successful as you guys… keep it up.
Oh yes, if there is any silver lining to tonight, its that John’s head may actually explode at some point in the next two weeks. Not that I want that to happen, but it will be something to behold.
I am totally number nine million.
Dude, if that’s what you want, it’s cheaper than I was thinking! ;-)
Damn. I’m # 8,999,999. AGAIN.
And I get excited when one of the (many) posts I whore out around here gets a hundred hits…Damn.
No worries. John’s teaching Tunch to maul Hilbots.
9,000,000. Awesome. Since I’ve already admitted that John’s occasional confessionals about his former political self turn me on, I’ll just add that the *other* reason I come here several times a day is for the incomparable comment threads. Smart and funny and *both* sexy.
null pointer exception
I have a great business proposition for you from Nigeria.
9 mil, eh; did you get to it yet.
The real question is, how many of those 9 million visitors were actually DougJ?
So the first comment with a new email address needs to go through moderation? Wow. You guys getting hit badly by trolls and spam, or is this just the default setting?
Chris Farley was never ever funny. “Look at me; I’m a fat idiot!” isn’t funny, and that’s just about what every Farley routine came down to. Sure, the occasional routine left out either “fat” or “idiot” as the basis of humor, but none left out both and none expanded on those two bases.
5-2 San Jose late in second period.
I am saddened that my hockey team lost tonight, eliminated from the playoffs in sudden-death overtime by the Flyers. My son will be unhappy when he hears, too.
Sigh. Obama and the Caps both went down to defeat tonight. This world is so damned unfair.
MEmemememmeee! It’s me!
Okay, maybe not.
Have a nice night.
And yes I’m pretty sick of the primaries, who isn’t?
I’m caller 8,999,997 – right?
Nine Million? Wow, that’s pretty awesome! Congrats.
I claim the prize!
…no? Oh well.
For great justice.
It’s the 21st century, digital scratch off lotto. I would like a 12pack of High Life, please.
Doubt I hit it, but what the heck, right?
Ten points. For pity’s sake.
So it probably happened on one of the other threads, but
en tous cas, who was our winner, Michael?

Crap. Zigged when I should have zagged, and hit “code” when I meant to hit “em”.
