Somebody Set Up Us The Vote!

(This post will be pinned to the top until voting is closed.)

This is a bleg -- begging from a blogger. I need your vote. Please vote for The Stupid Shall Be Punished in the "Best of the Top 2501-3500 Blogs" category of the 2006 Weblog Awards. You can vote every 24 hours, so please, vote early and often. If you need help deciding who to vote for, I've prepared a handy Voters Guide. Just click on the logo below to go to the voting site:

The 2006 Weblog Awards

Thank you for your support of The Stupid Shall Be Punished.

Current status (as of 2312 15 Dec): Voting has ended -- thanks to everyone who voted so diligently! While the results won't be "official" until probably Monday, it looks like we finished 2nd, with 1,121 votes -- 188 votes behind the winner, mAss Backwards. Of note, our total was almost 750 votes more than the winner got in this category last year. It also appears that we got more votes than the winners of all but the top two "Ecosystem" categories.

I'll try to come out with a "lessons learned" document on Monday.

You don't want to be nice just to get votes, do you? The snarky side of your blog is one of it's attractions.

I find your blegging unbecoming but voted for you anyway. Stay true and spare a thought for the fallen brother on CABLE

km -- Thank you. It's tough to strike a good balance between humor and the sorrowful things that are happening in the world. I have been keeping my most recent Frank Cable post updated.

Man, I lift my head out the hectic world of carblogging for a few minutes, scan the Awards nominee list, and see you in there.

Kickass.

And you're neck-and-neck with the other contender? Even better. I'm voting every day.

I have instructed the stragglers who still preuse NoonzWire to go vote as well. Here's hoping for a win!

Don't count The Impolitic out yet boys. You may have noticed I've made a stunning comeback from last place to a solid third and I now have the next three days off to bleg full time.
Plenty of time for an 11th hour surprise sweep....

Good luck though. I have to admit if I lose, I'm rooting for you based solely on that sweet photoshop.

BH - just saw that pic of you and the carters. It looks like she is putting the hit on you. Notice the body language. She's listing way towards you and away from the peanut.
BTW - he ticks me off. When he ran for president I actually voted for him, since he was Annapolis and was sold as a nuclear submarine officer. Hmmm. From what I can tell he never served a day on a nuke.
Just so you think I'm not as shallow as you might think, I also liked his zero based budget approach. Sadly right after election he was told by congress, forget it!

As a ninmate (ninme's blog's always worth a visit, folks) I'm under strict instructions to vote as often as I can. So I will. Though I would do anyway, I hope.

The yaks at TRY have new respect for the Bubblehead. Somehow our server has crashed during the voting and our computers have been locked out when trying to vote. Hmm. He seems so innocent and yet....

Beware of votes from mass4oles.
No votes here on on the level, why do you think the Swimmer has been in congress for 43 years. Don't even mention Carry.

One more vote for you and if you're ever downtown on a Friday night, stop in a Mulligans around 7pm and I'll buy you a beer. Just look for the cowboys
