    You heard it here first... why would you elect someone who isn't a savage? I will savagely defend the Post Count of the RTDNTOTO, unlike my opponents. Also, it sure seems like we are getting a lot of third party candidates... a vote for Ofos or Mastiff is a vote for the status quo. Don't be a lemming.

    Yes, don't be a lemming! Don't be like Hink!

    What will the candidate due to stem the tide of illegal immigrant activity from the likes of india, pak-ee-stan, and other far away places?

    This is a local election, sir. So we handle things like keeping Macy*s out of the FAC. We have Dan at the next level to keep banning those IPs. I, of course, support his effort in this much more than my opponents. Thank you for your excellent question, and don't forget to vote! For me...

    Three reasons to vote for Maister, the Splitting Party candidate:

    1. There will be lots of new threads.

    2. It'll be a vote against Hink*

    3.



    * notice how I completely ignored all the third party candidates? You get to do that when you belong to a Major Party
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    The only thing my opponent and I agree on is that we will ignore 3rd party candidates, because really the funding mechanisms support just two parties here.

    As for my opponent... Maister has again proven how easily dog distract him from what should be his job of promoting more posts within the RTDNTOTO thread. He didn't even create a poll on this thread, so we can't even vote.

    Voter suppression at its worst....

    That is a great question, LP. Really great. Like amazingly great. Just like you....


    I strongly believe that we should review how we deal with bannings and if they are warranted then we should create a committee to determine whether or not it goes forward to the supreme leader, Dan.

    Anything that adds additional ways to post pad in the RTDNTOTO I support.

    Im always happy to answer perceptive and insightful questions from beautiful, intelligent, well-informed voters like yourself.

    Let's see, before lunch today, I successfully implemented a plan to pay off the national debt that does not involve either raising taxes or reducing expenditures, I brokered a peace deal between the Israelis and Palestinians, and currently am working on completing the Grand Unification Theory - I may not be done, however, until almost 5:00 with that.

    You know, that is one of the best questions I've heard anyone ask. Ever.
    As usual, my opponent Hink's position on this issue is as muddled and confused as we've come to expect. I on the other hand feel strongly about this matter. The important thing here is that our Supreme Leader Dan should get the very best information and opinions available in deciding whether or not a banhammer is appropriate. To that end I propose we create a special fact-finding committee which would report their findings and opinions directly to him.

    I support them all with the exception of the smilie who appears to be in some discomfort as he shakes hands rather vigorously. I'm not altogether sure I understand how that one could prove to be useful. [holds hand to earpiece] What I mean to say is I support them all except the one who is masticating. People shouldn't need to be told how many times to chew their food. [holds hand to earpiece]...what did you say? Um Dan, let me get back to you on that question.

    What are your thoughts about

    a non native hoosier who doesn't really care about college basketball (like IU, let alone Louisville or UK) until March ?
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    You should vote for Maister.... my tent is big, but we have no room for people who don't love college basketball.

    Ignoring 3rd party candidates in a bipartisan election? Say...I'm starting to think this election is more about protecting the incumbents and the status quo than bringing about change. I'm glad it doesn't work that way in real government.

    New information shows that Maister let several threads die when he could have saved them. What kind of leadership is that?! Can we take four more years of that behavior?

    Also, Hink has been party the exporting planners to other websites! Shocking, but true!

    Looks like some early returns are starting come in. So that we can avoid allegations of any voting irregularities, we've asked an impartial third party (not even an American) to oversee the election process and ensure complete fairness in the democratic process....

    Yes, well, with 5% of precincts in New Hampshire reporting, thus far, it appears Maister is leading with 73%....Hink is next with 26% and Mastiff and ofos each with 0.5% a piece.
    Sorry.
    Canada is a place of infinite promise. We like the people, and if one ever had to emigrate, this would be the destination, not the U.S.A. The hills, lakes and forests make it a place of peace and repose of the mind, such as one never finds in the U.S.A.

    Too late. My lawyers have already got a judge to quash your lawyers' motion for an injunction.
