Time's Running Out!


If you have not yet cast your vote(s) for Ass Clown of the Year, you'd better get to it ... the ballot box closes at 11:59 PM tomorrow evening. Of course, since we're using Chicago Rules, your votes will be counted right up to the moment I hit the "Publish" button on the blog - less, of course, any time required to re-rank the finalists.

Balloting has been fairly light this year, an unfortunate trend I attribute to the enormous number of "worthy" candidates for the award. Come on, Dear Readers! Your vote may count for nothing if you live in one of the Congressional districts that has been gerrymandered into complete idiocy, but ol' Bilbo will always give you your voice.

Here are the standings as we enter the home stretch ...

In first place, still tied at 40 votes each, are the GOP and the Democratic Party.

In second place, with 28 votes, is Edward Snowden.

The Tea Party and Virginia representative Eric Cantor are tied for third place with 12 votes each.

In fourth place is House Speaker John Boehner with seven votes.

And tied for fifth (and, at the moment, last) place with one vote each are Congress, Secretary of State John Kerry, and our August monthly award winner Casey James Fury.

It's not too late to cast your votes! Remember that Chicago Rules apply ... this means that you can vote as many times for as many candidates as you wish, and you can also vote on behalf of your relatives (living and dead), friends (living and dead, real and imaginary), your pets, or your friends' and relatives' friends.

Let them know you care - vote now for Ass Clown of the Year!

Have a good penultimate day of 2013. More thoughts tomorrow.

Give the whole Alabama House my vote! And Vladimir Putain! Give Paul Krugman a courtesy vote, and a passel of votes for Casey James Fury for being such a selfish asshole!
