Grizzled. He has guest-blogged at my place a couple of times, so I'm counting him as a blogger... plus, he's got mad skills in any number of areas... and I like him.

So there.

You're starting bad reindeer games here, Von!!

Mendacious D said...

Von is the obvious answer. I mean COME ON.

Von said...

LOL - I did NOT make this today's question to stroke my fragile ego. I'm just....curious!!

Mendacious totally stole my answer, while I was still formulating it.

What was I thinking!?! Of course!! Von! I wasn't fully awake when answering. :)

That's just a fringe benefit!

If the question read "blog" instead of blogger the answer would be easy - Think Progress.

But since it's "blogger" I'm gonna go with Jim Fallows beating out Kevin Drum by a whimsical whisker. On the strength of the more eclectic nature of the work (aviation posts! Software Posts!) And yeah, Krugman, Matty, Ezra, Chait, Cohn, Benen and especially Ackerman (did I ever mention I was a guest - blogger for Ackerman at FDL?) would be missed.

W/V is busloger. Oh, there goes one now. Quick, like a bunny, write it down!

Anyone here familiar with Stephen King's story "Survivor Type"?

Because, you know, DESERT island. As in sand and rocks and not much else.

So, after thinking a bit, I would have to say Lileks. Or perhaps Ann Althouse.

Because a zombie's got to eat. And in addition to making the world a little bit better place, Lileks has the additional positive of not having all that hair.

While Althouse is pre-marinated and would give me a buzz.

Happy Zombie Fun Time....

I'll raise the zombie to Jonah Goldberg. After all, I have no idea how long I'm going to be there, and the appalling idea of cannibalism will be balanced out by removing Jonah Goldberg. Plus I imagine he is filled to his epidermis with high fructose corn syrup and probably tastes rather sweet.

mikey said...

Hmmm.

Am I the only one who finds themselves a bit concerned over the rather unseemly enthusiasm for cannibalism one finds amongst those in orbit around Von?

Because, and hey, we're just noodling here, ok? But suppose you GOT to the desert island with Doughbob Althouse only to discover that there was fish, tortoises and flightless birds, along with regular rain showers for gathering fresh water? Now you don't need to eat the annoying bastards, but you'll need to kill them in cold blood to preserve your sanity. At that point, the fact that you don't have to eat them is cold comfort, like an unheated can of Campbells chechen noodle....

A blonde, female blogger...identity otherwise unimportant.
That way the media will put more effort into searching for us.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I am a much worse person than mikey.

But hey, who didn't know that?

Kathleen said...

wouldn't you want one of those wingnut Ayn Rand loving bloggers? since they can survive + prosper without society and all....

Von said...

SC - you do know that I'm blonde....right? ;)

Jennifer said...

Next Friday's question:

Which island will we be stranded on with Von?

Von- small warning... I suspect if you end up on one with SM, it will be the Island of Dr. Moreau.

fish said...

I think I would go with Edroso, because there would almost certainly be firearms and porn. And he would never do this.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Also, Edroso could eat fish to survive.

Smut Clyde said...

wouldn't you want one of those wingnut Ayn Rand loving bloggers?

That would certainly be the noble self-sacrificing course of action since you would be taking the wingnut Ayn Rand loving blogger out of circulation, to the relief of everyone else.
