The VBC under Attack

"Is it just me, or has the Virginia Blog Carnival had a decidedly right-wing slant to it lately? The last four especially have been awfully heavy with conservative snark and propaganda. I always thought the Carnivals were supposed to be non-political... maybe that rule only applies when Republicans are in power."
So the last 4 carnivals are slanted? What a crock. Political posts are and have always been accepted. The carnival is made up of those who submit their work. The hosts volunteer. Now we have
Rantblogs Slantblogs FT Rea making this comment and invoking the VBC in his post here. The conspiracy consists that the VBC and Blog Net News have been "shanghaied" by the right wing bloggers. The facts prove that false. But Rea does not like the facts. You see when confronted with the facts he cries foul, you're attacking me, etc.
Lets look at the facts. A simple word and archive search of either of the above blogs will reveal how many times they have hosted or linked to the VBC. I don't have to tell you the results. It is easy to see who the real "tools" are. To my knowledge neither have hosted, submitted, promoted by linking the VBC in anyway. Oh but they will whine...See- you can take them to an issue but you cant make them see the sense in it.
So gentlemen, before you whine and invoke the VBC and conspiracy theories, get off your elitist asses and submit, promote, and host. Do not blame the ones who do for your own laziness.
