Today Or Tomorrow…

… it’s up to you folks. A Tee-shirt awaits . Only 200 visits or so to go and we will have a winner. We typically have around 200 visits a day during the week, so we should pass that magic number today or tomorrow. I’m so excited.

When we pass the 10000 mark here is what is going to happen. I am going to post a comment in this thread or one above it (if there is another posting today) and in that comment you will be directed to leave your own comment here, telling the world why voting for me for president will be either a disaster or a boon for this nation. The Basketeers will vote on which one we deem worthy of the Tee. You will be judged on creativity and overall funny-bone tickling.

The hit counter for WordPress is simply terrible, so this is the best way I can think of to make this work. This effort has the added advantage of being completely subjective, giving me even more power and the will to power is what drives me. So says Freddy N.

Begin hitting refresh…. NOW!

UPDATE:  we are over 10K… Now I need your comments… go to the Meta People!

 Screen Cap below:  9999… cool.

  1. I know… read my second to last paragraph… WP stinks. That is why we are doing this via comments. All of your refreshes will catch up soon.

  2. It would appear that if I continue to refresh I’ll take the counter to zero. With one click on refresh I took the counter back about 30 hits. What kind of chicken outfit are you running here?

  3. Well, Have a screen capture showing the blog at 9,999… Cameron Sutton wrote to tell me that the blog was over 10,019. So… there you go.

  4. OK Folks… provide us with your reasons for/against my run for office. We will decide this by Monday or so…

    Remember, we are looking for clever, pithy, funny, insightful semi-coherent posts.

    Thanks for playing.

  5. You can’t be president because you are a white guy. Although we (The Republican Party) have been putting old white guys in office for over 150 years, the democrats want change! It wouldn’t change much if you were put in office, they’d just say, “Man, now we have to deal with another white guy!” We all know exactly what’s going to happen this election. Here’s how it’s all going to happen. I’ll take you through step by step…

    1. Hillary wins the Democratic Party nomination for President of the United States because the women think her jeans are krispy. (Kris-py, – adjective descibing one’s fresh style or unique swagger)

    2. Naturally, she wants to choose as her running mate someone with a lot of knowledge and experience in government and foreign affairs, someone who is a seasoned campaigner who could bring a lot of strength to the ticket. Who better than Bill, her wife…I mean…husband?!!!

    3. Hill and Bill go on to win the election in November and the Democrats maintain control of the House and the Senate.

    4. Hillary is sworn in as President on January 20, 2009. The next day, after all the inauguration parties are over, she calls a press conference to make an announcement: she is resigning as President!!! Bill, as the Vice President, immediately becomes President!!! This is all perfectly legal under the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution; for it states that “no person may be elected as president more than twice”. Bill is not being elected for a third term but is merely serving out the remainder of Hillary’s term—all 4 years of it.

    5. But wait! There’s more! The following day Bill calls a press conference to make an announcement. He has chosen someone to fill the now-vacant office of Vice President. Guess who he picks? Why, Hillary, of course!!! So she can run for two more terms.

    You see??? It’s gonna be an old white woman! And then an old white guy! If you run for President, there is a 10,000 to 0.0001 chance that you’d win…going against Hilary! Sheesh…

  6. Why would you want to run for office? “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” I guarantee that within 3 months of being in office, were you to win, you would no longer be 100% Chalcedon compliant. Do not run! Rather, do run . . . away from the temptation.

    Just remember, the last ’08 year president was William Howard Taft. Need I say more? Before that was James Madison. I don’t know about his presidency, but his wife makes some mean snack cakes. If your wife can bake snack cakes like that, everyone will vote for you. Of course Taft ate a few too many of Madison’s snack cakes and look what happened to him.

    In summary, don’t run for president or everyone will eat your wife’s snack cakes, you will need a bigger bathtub in the White House and you will lose your standing with the Council of Chalcedon.

    I thank you for this opportunity and ask you to remember to vote early and vote often. Remember that every vote cast for me is a vote not cast for anyone else.

  7. I don’t think you should run for president because running makes you sweaty and then you will become one of the great unwashed.

    So I think you should WALK for president.

  8. I think your candidacy for president is doomed to go down in flames unless I get the tee shirt and a choice appointment to your cabinet. If you don’t come through with the goods within 24 hours I will leak it to the press that your nerd name is “Francis the Sushi Aficionado”.
