The Hazard of Duke

Since I got a mention in Mike's Blog Roundup at Crooks & Liars yesterday, I checked in on my server logs to see a respectable increase in traffic for the day, but as is often the case, some of the other items in the report were disturbing.

Most particularly that the top search term associated with people who have come to the site so far this month is former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard and politician "david duke." (I hadn't realized that Duke's successor in the Louisiana House was Sen. David Vitter.) I wonder if there's any connection to the tenor of the McCain campaign's recent days? Not only is "david duke" the top term, it's been clicked through more times in just the first nine days of October than my usual top terms (the seemingly-dormant game engine otoy and the late Ugandan dictator Idi Amin) usually get in an entire month.

Strange.
