Congratulations are in order for owner/journalist R.S. McCain and for bottlewasher/janitor Smitty of The Other McCain because they passed the 5 million hits mark yesterday morning around 9 o’clock. Managing the monumental task in just over two and a-half years from March 2008. Impressive. Most impressive.

Robert Stacy McCain, the originator of such memes as the “Full Metal Jacket Reach Around” and babe blogging or what has simply become known as “Rule 5” has been a great asset to the blogging community and to the the political landscape of America these last years. No matter that his talents seem to go under appreciated by some convention circles. Your work is definitely worthy, Stacy. Even if your tenacity sometimes borders the line of cyber-stalker.

Then again, I’m looking to frame my first restraining order shortly so, I really have no room to offer advice. Whatever works for you bud. I say go for it.

Sadly, Stacy uses the occasion of the announcement to point out that our good friend Smitty, is being called to serve our country once again in the capacity of a REMF. I must admit stupidity to this new (to me) acronym and at first thought along the lines of MILF. But that brought to mind such horrible imagery, that my robotic brain threatened overload and quickly discharged the idea. After a quick search it turns out, happily, that REMF is shorthand for “Rockey Mountain Elk Foundation.” While the letters don’t match, it is still reassuring, although only slightly. If the Taliban are hiding in the Rockies, then we may very well be FUBAR.

Smitty, I hope you are able to rout the bastards out with God Speed and return to your rightful place of judging the worthiness of Rule 5 entries as soon as you possibly can. My sincere thanks and prayers go with you.

Be sure to stop by The Other McCain and congratulate them on a job well done.

Here’s to your next 5 million, fellas. May you reach that milestone in half the time.
