Continuing on the fun we had yesterday, let's keep this awards thing going, shall we? Remember, the emphasis here is on good-natured fun. We're not really keeping score, just having a good time. Like Cindy V said today over at Keelan's place, "At some point it would be smart to accept the election results and try to make the most of them — an ambitious democrat as CE and a Democrat in the Governors mansion —- HoCo should make hay while the sun shines."
Best Proto-Mainstream-Issue Coverage by a Blog: The Hatch Act on David Keelan's blog.
The “Nicest” Blog Post: Courtesy of nice guy, David Wissing.
Most Ambitious Proposal: Evan’s plan for bringing Metro to Columbia.
Most Misconstrued Post: My endorsement of Ken Ulman, which some seemed to think was motivated solely by the fact that he supports gay marriage and reproductive choice. Here's what David Wissing had to say about it:
In addition, Hayduke has endorsed Ken Ulman (surprise, surprise), but he claims the reason for doing so has something to do with Chris Merdon not answering some question about gay marriage and abortion, which is odd since these issues have nothing to do with being County Executive….Again, my emphasis wasn't on how Ulman answered the questions, but the fact that he did when others would not.
Most Universally Loathed Shopping Center: Columbia Crossing, criticized by Evan, Wordbones, and me.
Least Accurate Pre-Election County Executive Poll: Not even close.
Best Cross-Partisan Secret Keeping: David Wissing, who knew my true identity long before I had even considered making it public. Thanks, Dave.
Noted recluse, Hayduke, promises he will eventually “identify” himself in the near future and attend a candidate’s forum, although unbeknownst to him (or maybe he knows, I don’t know), I already know who he is. (Remember, if you send an email from your home email address, your name comes along with it) But his secret identity is safe with me until he is ready to make himself public.Newest Local Blog: Frequent commenter Freemarket joins the fold (thought you could hide from us, did you?).
