Hubby is a major contributor to a political blog. I'd link to it, but he writes under his own name and that would make things just a little less anonymous than I'd like.

He countered with "I'll link to you with the phrase, 'here's a highly critical article about [insert name of presidential candidate with the initials R. P., whose followers are a bit nuts].
I countered with, "I'll write a post about how you are more obstreperous than R. P.".....
