The Voting Continues

Voting for Comments of the Year is still active. The entries are:


Krista:

You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska.

And when I look out my window I can see the moon. Doesn’t make me a fucking astronaut now, does it?

Michael D.:

Ahmmm, I’m a ghey, and I wouldn’t do anything with the words “Cruise” and “Hugh Hewitt” in it.

Of course, with all those social conservatives in one place, it’ll probably sound like Riverdance in the bathrooms.

JasonF, with the Auto Industry as a Play. A sample (and really, read the whole thing):

ACT THREE

UAW: I have fulfilled my end of the deal by building the automobiles that you have asked me to build.

BIG THREE: Oh no! I am undone! My automobiles are no longer competitive due to my years of poor planning and poor judgment!

MITT ROMNEY: This is all UAW’s fault!

And, our final entry, Tbone with Hillary Clinton’s Tuzla War Journal, a fictionalized version of the sniper fire incident (and again, click the link for the whole comment):

It was a simple mission, they had told me – get in, shake a few hands and mouth a few platitudes, get out. Simple. Yeah.

Things had started going wrong while we were still in the air, and only gotten worse from there. So here we were, pinned down, choking on the acrid tang of cordite and the heady scent of human blood. The mission was even simpler now: survive. Whatever the cost, survive.

There was a grunt and a clatter of equipment as Sinbad threw himself down at my side. Sweat glistened on his bare arms, and I could see tendons contracting and relaxing as he squeezed off bursts from his M14. The motion was hypnotic, like a snake about to strike. Perhaps, when all this was over-

No. Concentrate. Focus on the mission. Survive.

A shout from my left drew my head around. Sheryl Crow, guitar still strapped to her back, had taken cover behind a pile of decaying corpses. Her once-lustrous hair, now limp and stringy, was held back from her eyes by a dirty red headband, and her slim nostrils flared, seeking air free of the funeral taint permeating the airfield. Still, I saw a fierce exultation in her expression that I knew mirrored my own.

[poll id = 6]

Vote while you can.

    When I was 10 I started a string of Halloweens where myself and my friends dressed up as army commandos and treated trick or treating as faux recon missions.

    Also when I was 10 and the US bombed Libya, some of my friends in my Boy Scout troop and I started getting all rawdy and yelling that we were going to kick their ass and yada yada yada… until one of our Den masters — a vet — admonished us for treated a military operation like a sporting event.

    I really hope the guys who run Red State are 10.

    Is it too early to award the best "we’re not even going to pretend any more that we don’t like to pretend to be ‘soldiers’" post?

    Krista’s statement was pure brilliance. I think I said something this smart, maybe thirty years ago, but I can’t remember what it was now. It was a real zinger back then, though.

    Wolverines!

    Somehow, I get the sense that we’ll be saying that a lot in reference to RedState over the next few years.

    Wikipedia tells me wolverines (in addition to being teenaged freedom fighters) are gluttonous weasels.

    I have a feeling you’re right. We *will* be saying that a lot in reference to RedState.

    George Will thinks what America needs right now is a big tax cut.

    I voted for the UAW Auto Industry play. That comment was brilliant not only because it was really funny, but it was incredibly instructive.

    Or to quote Homer Simpson, "It’s funny because it’s true"

    the uaw industry play was perfect and has pretty much shut the mouth of my increasingly annoying Republican and Libratarian freinds and of course, my father, who now has to look at the UAW situation as one of contract law, and is feeling all morally quagmiry.

    yay.

    also, it got the blog national attention.

    Tried to vote for JasonF’s play but got a "please choose a valid poll answer" error message.

    So votes for JasonF aren’t valid? Did Tbone hire Norm Coleman’s lawyers?
