This is what happens to your blog's hit count when you get linked by Instapundit.com. If you're not familiar with Instapundit, it is arguably the most widely read conservative political blog on the planet. Thank you very much to Instapundit for the link. (I can't link directly to individual posts on Instapundit; but if you want to know how to find the link, it was posted at 5:13 PM on Saturday).
P.S. Why does this stuff always happen when I can't blog? But what can I say? Yom Kippur is Yom Kippur and I've got to do what I've got to do.
