This Is Why I Don't Allow Ads

Over at Too Conservative, bless their hearts, they allow ads to be posted on their site, probably by AdSense.  AdSense, in turn, places whatever ads it wants, pretty much, which means you effectively have no control over the products, services or people appearing on your site for which you apparently vouch.

Well, there's this one that's now running on TC.  "The Patriot Majority" slams all the Republican Nevada senate candidates in what seems to be a front for Harry Reid. Keep in mind, this comes a week after a Nancy Pelosi plug also ran under the "Link" section.

I'm not one to begrudge a guy for making a buck, but when it comes at that kind of price, is it really worth it?


  1. Given that young Vince is whoring Fimian with reckless abandon (previous to Fimian's outrageous behavior in the race, I was fine with that), why does this surprose you?
    If I had started down the road as a paid Fimian guy.....My personal "character" would have forced me to break with him once the underhanded crap had started. Sorry to see Vince did not do this. I have thought so highly of him for so long in the past.

  2. It doesn't surprise me that they have advertising, just that the ads were really reaching the wrong people.

    By the way, it looks like Brian S. has left TC. If Loudoun Insider leaves, too, we could hear crickets chirping over there.

  3. LI has been contemplating it for a year or more.
    I wish he'd leave for his own thing....but I fear that he loves the jaded limelight at Vince's too much to depart.

    Brian's new place is simply FANTASTIC!
