Happy Birthday, Applesauce!


One year ago today, this humble little blog set sail on its maiden voyage on the turbulent seas of American politics, proudly bearing the flag of liberalism and fearlessly ready for battle against reactionary forces wherever they might rear their ugly heads.

It’s been a great year from several standpoints. Our side prevailed in the November elections, and Applesauce has racked up more than 111,000 page views, by far the most among all the blogs here at rrstar.com.

This post is our 1,773rd, and the next comment from a reader will be the 8,353rd.

I am sincerely grateful to our many Applesauce visitors and especially to those brave enough to register comments at the risk of snarky rejoinders from me and other commenters.

Keep ’em coming.



  1. I’m 8,353rd! I’m 8,353rd!

    Happy BD Applesauce.

  2. Thank you, Geo, but you’ll always be No. 1 in my book.

    Pat-Congratulations. I am proud to be one of the reactionary forces allowed to raise my ugly head on this site and, I’m not going away.
