Any Club That Would Have Us As A Member, Part II

Like last year, Popehat has made the ABA Journal's Blawg 100, this time in the News/Analysis category.

It's clear that they still don't quite know what to make of us:

For a blog named after the pontiff’s headgear, Popehat sure is irreverent. A group blog devoted to—among many other things—First Amendment rights, Popehat was established back in 2005. Although it doesn’t necessarily consider itself a law blog so much as a geek blog, its members are quite active in the online legal community.

We'll likely be crushed by heavyweights like Above the Law and Volokh and Turley and Randazza, all of whom are deserving. But if you feel like it, drop us a vote anyway.

    On the matter of the name of this blog, I'm sure this removes any "street cred" I may have had, but is there a story behind the "Popehat" name? Is it a reference to pontificating?

    You know, if you had only subscribed to my pony themed guest post/SEO service, you'd be in the top ten, instead of the top hundred.

    I believe it's handled on the "about" page:
    "We do receive questions about the name. The name "Popehat" derives from an inside joke not particularly funny to those not in the know. It is in no way intended to mock, disparage, or praise the Roman Catholic Church or its pontiff, a subject on which we remain officially agnostic."
