History Carnival Experiment

I just submitted the blog entry below, "Why it is Russian-German and not German-Russian" to the History Carnival. I predict that like my previous entries "Russian-Germans as a racial catagory" and "Happy Manifesto Day" that it will be rejected without any stated reason. Despite the fact that each of these carnivals, XII, XIII and XIV have different hosts I do not think it matters. The "hip" academic history blogs seem to have formed some sort of exclusionary clique. People with ideas that do not fit into their rather politically correct definition of "cool" get ignored. I would be happy to be proven wrong, but I live in the real world and can see the creation of a blog wall between the "haves" and "have nots."
