Cases, Statutes, Treatises . . . Blawgs?

So, in keeping with its character, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is once again blazing a trail by indicating, in dicta, that Blawgs may now be accepted as legal authority in a judicial misconduct proceeding.

The court wrote:
Throughout these lengthy proceedings, the judge has offered nothing at all to justify his actions--not a case, not a statute, not a bankruptcy treatise, not a law review article, not a student note, not even a blawg.

--In re Complaint of Judicial Misconduct, 425 F.3d 1179, 1195 (9th Cir. 2005).

My only question is this:

Do Blawgs written within the jurisdiction of the 9th Circuit carry more weight than those written in other circuits??

If so, the real fun will start when the 7th Circuit adopts this same approach and Law&Alcoholism becomes a favorite for judges attempting to justify their coming to court "black-out drunk" and asking the female bailiff to help them use their penis pumps.

But, for now, aLs can surely have some fun with this . . .
