God'sCountry, USA: It was a great surprise, said "the Ironic Catholic," to be mentioned in the latest debate between the Presidential candidates, but she has taken in stride the latest twist in her life: from quiet Catholic theology professor to the popular Google search term "IC the Blogger."
"I didn't know McCain was an active reader until I was watching the debate and he brought up 'My friend, IC the blogger,'" said the Ironic Catholic, aka "IC". "I mean, I'm actually not that concerned about my taxes on the blog since I make about 10 cents a week, but I guess if he's reaching out to every American--well, every American I know is not making much money on a blog. Seemed like a good debate tactic to me."
The experience wasn't entirely pleasant, however. "I was a bit rattled when Obama looked at the camera and said 'I.C., if you're out there, you will save money with my plan.' I mean, I know I'm out there. My students always tell me I'm out there. But I don't need an existential crisis on top of reflecting on the unclear tax burden of my barely monetized blog," complained the elusive blogger.
However, many people, intrigued by the mention of something as completely irrelevant as a nameless blogger in a presidential debate set in apocalyptic times, caused Google to crash after the debate, plugging in "IC the Blogger". Reporters have questioned her qualifications as a licensed blogger and have since found out she owes about 1,200 posts to Stuff Catholics Like.
"Anonymity has its advantages," admitted IC the Blogger.
