“Order of The Shrill”?

Hmmm… I’m wondering. I thought Brad Delong always called it  just “ShrillBlog” and then sometime after I posted a comment here about how Greenwald should be inducted in the “Order of The Shrill”, this and this appeared with “Order of The Shrill” in them.

So, was it my idea? I should be so lucky – probably either “groupthink” or I read the title (a good one if I do say so myself) and didn’t realize. That and I probably have the timeline wrong.

Ah, one could only wish their comment actually reached the eyes of the Great “Brad Delong” and made an impression on him!

UPDATE:

Ah, at best it’s parallel thinking and at worst, unintentional plagiarism on my part. This post from Delong from October 2008 references “Order of The Shrill”. Alas, I am not the creator but only a lowly copy cat of old (but excellent) ideas. 🙁

UPDATE 2:

In many way this highlights the narcissism of blogging (whether directly or in comments) – it really is an attention getting exercise. Clearly I suffer from the same narcisto-blog-ic tendencies (ie: Look at me! Look at me! Look at me!).
