Rule 5 posts have to do with pretty girls or beautiful women - whichever you prefer. RS McCain says I will undoubtedly get a million hits if I join Rule 5'ers, mix it up a little bit with Rules 1, 2, 3, and 4, because only a few can handle all politics, all the time. See a video below.
I've pestered my guy blogging friends who eagerly await the day for their Rule 5 posts. I've whined that they had an unfair advantage. The whining was not productive.
From The Other McCain, this is how Stacy McCain explains mixing "loveliness" with politics:
Everybody loves a pretty girl -- It's not just guys who enjoy staring at pictures of hotties. If you've ever picked up Cosmo or Glamour, you realize that chicks enjoy looking at pretty girls, too. Maybe it's the vicious catty she-thinks-she's-all-that factor, or theschadenfreude of watching a human trainwreck like Britney Spears, but no one can argue that celebrity babes generate traffic.Then I noticed that Opus_6 at American Perspective became a Rule 5'er on Saturdays. I've studied her posts to determine just how a I might move into the Rule 5 territory. You can see a few of hers here, here and here. The last one definitely has me thinking I can do this.
Then I compared her posts to the most energetic Rule 5 poster, outside of McCain, that I know, and that would be Bob Belvedere at The Camp of the Saints. See a few of his here, here and here. I recognized all of the women in Opie's posts. I haven't a clue who most are at Belvedere's place.
I've eliminated most of today's beautiful women because I can't stomach their politics. Maybe I'll get over it. Having said that, if you know Natalie Wood's political leanings, don't tell me.
So here's my first Rule 5 post. Let me know what you think.
