That's the Washington Times.

Which don't get me wrong, it's nineteen orders of magnitude more press than *I* ever got. And it's a lot more positive than the press Roosh is getting. Congrats!

Congrats.

This should drive book sales and traffic.

Do you have a formula that extrapolates how much hate you'll now receive? Something like...

Article+book sales+site traffic = % increase in hate ?

But then it also has to take into account how much hate will be generated by the book and also with people reading your back posts... So my formula is extremely basic. I would be interested in seeing a post that extrapolates it.

People don't like truth and your interview told truth plus knocked the people in charge. Very entertaining

Congrats! may your book sales skyrocket.

I loved this:

DDG: What was your take on the "solution" we saw earlier this month to the so-called fiscal cliff crisis?

Clarey: "Band-Aid put on a cut aorta."

Anon,

I am always trying to maximize the hate. I have advanced formulae and algorithms, but basically I've found speaking the truth earns the most hate.

Hey Cap'n. In your zeal of celebration you seem to have made a minor error - you made the Washington Times, not the Post.

My favorite question/answer:

DDG: What was your take on the "solution" we saw earlier this month to the so-called fiscal cliff crisis?

Clarey: Band-Aid put on a cut aorta

That was pretty good, but you soft-pedalled some matters. For example one might think that solutions only (only!) required political will in Washington, whereas your 2008 book on the housing crisis showed how much local rot there is. Again, David Goldman has written an article (with charts even!) on the falling-off of innovation.

Then there is government scleroris. There is the nice example of the C-130. Supposedly the original proposal was about 25 or 30 pages long (Wikipedia says 130 pages) which led to the most successful transport aircraft in history. When, eventually, 30 or 40 years later the USAF wanted a replacement, Lockheed's bid required so much paper that a Herc was needed to fly the proposal to Washington!

Now use "As seen in Washington Times" on your website... AND use it in your bio for your books.
