Those Who Can Think, Argue For Their Position, Those Who Can't, Hurl Profanities

The blogger Instapunk made the following challenge the other day:

I propose an exercise to be performed by those who have the software and expertise to carry it out. The exercise is this: Search six months' worth of content, posts and comments, of the 20 most popular blogs on the right and the left. The search criteria are George Carlin's infamous '7 Dirty Words.'

Initial research indicates that the blogospheric left spews potty-mouthed locutions at somewhere between an 18 to 1 and a 44 to 1 ratio compared to the blogospheric right.
