Reminder Notice

If you are an anti-idiotarian, rightist (is that a word?), centrist, or even a non-barking-moonbat lefty, there's still time for you to get over to the New Blog Showcase and vote for Defending the Blogosphere Front in the War on Terrorism at Irreconcilable Musings.

We've already squished the LLLs like bugs, but there's always room for more squishing.

And if you are a barking-moonbat lefty, keep reading this blog and your cure is assured! (Warning: Some thinking may also be required.)

Update: It looks like the League of Losers tried a little Chicago-style "Vote early and often" chicanery, but they are rank amateurs at the game compared to Harvey of Bad Money:

Earlier this week (twice, actually) a bunch of losers ran a denial of service attack on Hosting Matters. Pissed me right off. First, if you don't like someone's blog, you should make a better one yourself. Second, if you're not qualified to do so, then just hit the damn back button & don't give them your traffic.

Irreconcilable Musings has a NBS entry that discusses this topic, and even offers an idea for something you can do to keep a good blog from being knocked down again. That makes him a winner in my book. Or at least votable.
And just for fun, I'm going to give IM some Chicago-style bonus votes. Rumor has it the Bear's vote counter is a little wonky. Well, when in Rome...

or Physics Geek:
Defending the Blogosphere Front in the War on Terrorism over at Irreconcilable Musings

I see that the Axis of Weenies has put in all their 27 votes for the post saying Bush=Hitler, Cheney=Satan, we're all being Enron-ed. Grow up, people. It's not the best written post, or even the most entertaining. If a liberal version of Frank J. ever appeared in the Showcase, I'd vote for it because it would be FUNNY. Actually, since most liberals are humor impaired, my example is a huge stretch, but you catch my drift. Anyway, voting for someone's blog just because you happen to agree with their ideology only makes you look stupid. Look, I can make like a liberal blogger, too: Bush is Hitler! Halliburton controls my life because Cheney is Satan! Bill Clinton makes me wet:razz uke::. Sorry, there are some things I just can't do.

Update: I see that the Axis of Weenies decided to cheat by treating the New Blog Showcase as their own personal Chicago-style election. I've decided to try their approach and make the assault so pernicious that Truth Laid Bear will cancel all the multiple votes as cheating. Since the lefties have decided to create a Florida redux election by manufacturing votes, I'll join right in.

In fact, Physics Geek posted that not once, but three times! Applause!

Update: Loyal reader and occasional commenter Mitch H. of Blogfonte tsks loudly. He has a point. But they started it! Um... I'm only reporting the news, not making it! Let's see... A rolling stone... No, that one doesn't work at all.

The drugs made me do it! Or possibly the devil! Devildrugs!

1 Yeah... it's kind of gone up the spout at this point. Linkwhoring has left this week's contest more contestable than a Chicago ward runoff.

2 The Bear seems to have gotten wise...nothing like a little gentle prodding to make people act, huh?

3 My first round of applause. I'm feeling a little verklempt right now. ::sniff:: Susie, you thought that my prodding was gentle? Guess I'll have to use a bigger, sharper stick next time. I've noticed quite a few links to my over-the-top attempt to influence The Bear. Mostly, I've been somewhat apologetic in the comments of each post. However, after thinking it over the last few days, I've decided that I'm really not sorry at all. A hothead I can be when riled up, and cheating riles me plenty. Really, what else can you call it? The whole "two wrongs don't make a right" platitude doesn't always apply.
