Well, I think democracy has finally reached its logical conclusion today. The flower of liberty has spread it crimson petals and thrust its mighty yellow stamen out into the recycled air of cyberspace, spraying the ejaculatory pollen of freedom over the hay-fevered face of oppression. The people have spoken in what is sure to be the most momentus election of our time. Something has happened that will capture the imagination of generations to come—like that guy from last fall, whasisface, who ended racism by being black and elected and then acted like an old white guy. The world has come a little closer to peace, people. Let freedom ring. I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord.
But first, a few impressions:
- What an enormous lot of you there are, thanks for reading ‘lo these last six years, and for coming out of the closet to vote—I wish I could respond individually to each of your smart-assed remarks with the joy I felt reading them
- It’s amazing how many different ways people can misspell “Kienapple”
- There are a lot of sympathetic cat ladies and cat-lady-lovers out there
- I think each candidate got at least one parent to vote for them (or the orphanage staff in the case of TUB), which speaks well of our efforts to keep the internet friendly for the the elderly and infirm
- Those who already have a well-attended blog presence really know how to milk their readers for votes
- It is also amazing how many of those voters can’t (be bothered to?) read instructions (but I counted their votes anyway, hanging chads be damned)
- My brain’s numbers bone hurts
- Votes accompanied by offers of sexual favours or monetary rewards were, in accordance with human rights policies around the (third) world, counted twice
More to come.
