Your Tax Dollars at Work

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

I use a service called StatCounter to track my web traffic. It tells me the basics like the # of visitors, their ISP, location, if they right-clicked any images and downloaded them, which website they came from to arrive here (e.g. Google), etc.

I track the traffic and to see which posts, if any, seem to be particularly popular, but I don't pay a lot of attention to that stuff overall. But today I found an interesting visit to my blog.

I noticed that the Internet Service Provider for this visitor was "United States Senate" in the District of Columbia. This wasn't shocking because I have gotten hits from them before, and the House of Representatives, and even the Supreme Court. But what was eye catching is that they arrived via Google because they Googled, "Dana Bash Bitch".

In 2008 I wrote this article about CNN reporter Dana Bash, but did NOT use the word "bitch" in my article. It's good to know that our Senators are worried about the important issues and not frivolities like warS, an oil leak, or recession.

That's how I roll.
