You can still vote, click here. This is a perfect family experience with the kids, distant relatives and pets.
After following the last two presidential campaigns, I am ready for the final push on the campaign. We must now enlist Nigerian spammers and Chinese hackers to bring home the ABA bacon. In the meantime, I will start to spread vicious rumors about the other blogs to suppress their vote and redirect their votes to nonexistent voting locations. I am also offering voters free teeshirts reading “Turley Bloggers Do It Daily” (offer invalid in all fifty states and any foreign nation or territory).
I am also promising religious right voters a faith-based initiative on the blog where I will openly advance sectarian demands (particularly to the exclusion of minority interests).
For same-sex couples, I am offering to use my status as a blogger to officiate at marriages under the theory that the Internet is like a virtual waterway and I therefore have the status of a captain.
For law and order advocates, I promise to demonize anyone accused of crimes (wimps wait for convictions) while working in the terms Arpaio and soft-on-crime into every blog entry.
For vegetarians, I promise a meat-free lexicon by dropping terms like “get to the meat of the issue” or “ham it up” or “playing chicken.” For environmentalists, I promise to free the pandas currently being use on treadmills to power my computer.
To bipeds, I promise to bar Quadrupedalism in any form, shunning quadrupeds from guest blogging spots or features.
For Barry Manilow fans . . . well you need to go to The Tax Professor blog . . . there a just come things I cannot do.
