Happy Birthday Peach Pundit!

Strange and Weird Birthday Cakes Ever 2Ten years ago today, Clayton Wagar made this post, as he and Erick Erickson launched Peach Pundit. The post later turned into the first “thread of dreams” which almost crashed the server and forced the implementation of time limits to commenting on posts.

Over the years we’ve talked about Georgia politics and a whole lot more. Just when we thought we’d discovered Paul Broun really did get sworn in, we found it might have been in the wrong state. Some guy named “Icarus” missed his chance to meet Mitt Romney at the Varsity because he was too busy trying to build his own Buzz Brockway, while Mike has a name picked out if this blogging thing fails and he decides to get in to uh…movies. No doubt the Tanalach Media Conspiracy was involved in all these disasters.

It’s been a fun ten years. I look forward to many more. Happy Birthday to us!

Discuss this and whatever else is on your mind in this OPEN THREAD.

    Seven years after giving up on building my own Buzz Brockway (and in the interim changing my name), I did get to meet Mitt Romney at the Varsity with a bonus of Sam Olens.

    Happy Belated Birthday PP!

    This site keeps me pretty well informed and for that I am always grateful.

    And Charlie, the job that you and your staff do with putting out solid and quality content is astounding. A true testament to your commitment and love of the political game. Thanks to all of you.

    Here’s to another 10 years!
