CHEESE OVERTAKES STILL TRAILS PATTERICO

Filed under: Awards — Patterico @ 10:57 pm

In a fairly shocking development, “The Cheese Stands Alone” has made a startling leap from third place into first place in the Marauding Marsupials contest. I can’t say for sure, but I think it gained more than 30 votes in an hour or two. This in a contest in which the top contenders have around 140 votes after several days of voting.

Strange, indeed.

UPDATE: Kevin reports that this was no accident. Apparently some fan of “Cheese Stands Alone” has been stuffing the ballot box. A 35-vote adjustment is pending; Patterico is still clearly in first place.

But don’t get complacent! Vote every 12 hours!

UPDATE x2: The proprietor of “Cheese Stands Alone” says that 1) she is not responsible for the ballot-box-stuffing, and 2) she perceives this entry as gloating.

Note that I never said that she was responsible — just that a fan was. I fully accept her representation that she didn’t do this.

Nor did I mean to gloat. I saw an unusual voting pattern and commented on it. Then, when it was revealed to be ballot-box-stuffing, I updated the post (including altering the title of the post). If that comes across to anyone as gloating, I am sorry — but that was definitely not my intent.

AS HUGH HEWITT SAYS. . .

Oh, yeah — vote!

THE MOUNTAIN OF VOTES IS A RATHER SMALL HILL SO FAR

Filed under: Awards — Patterico @ 6:33 am

The Hewitt/Smash pact has produced some results, but Patterico is still trailing. Remain vigilant!

UPDATE: I have now stormed to first place, barely — but the need to be vigilant (i.e. vote) has not ceased. Hewitt listeners, unite!

HEWITT/SMASH EVIL PACT AND VOTING REMINDER

Filed under: Awards — Patterico @ 6:53 pm

In order to take advantage of the corrupt deal just reached between Citizen Smash and Hugh Hewitt, I would like to take this opportunity to remind readers how to vote.

Please click on this link and vote for Patterico — just like Hugh says.

Please vote every 12 hours. If you cannot, you may have to remove your wizbangblog.com cookie, or block cookies from his site. Please do not do this to cheat — it’s wrong, and besides, he’ll find out. But if you need to do this to vote every 12 hours, go for it.

All I have to do to accept my part in this evil pact with a clear conscience is to vote for Hugh for best conservative blog at this link — but I was doing that regularly anyway. You should too.

UPDATE: I am unable to check the results without voting again (which I cannot legally do), so I asked a friend on the phone to check my status. Apparently I am still trailing the “Bitch Girls” by 8 votes. This cannot stand. It is an insult to Hugh Hewitt to imply that he cannot mobilize his audience to overcome this paltry deficit. I implore Hewitt listeners to demonstrate Hugh’s influence by voting for me, again and again, every 12 hours, as long as it takes until the “Bitch Girls” are buried beneath of mountain of Hewitt-inspired votes for Patterico.

P.S. Hugh and Smash: it’s pronounced “Patter-EEK-oh.”

MORE PROOF THAT HUMANS WILL CHEAT AT ANYTHING

Filed under: Awards,Scum — Patterico @ 8:54 pm

Even Weblog Awards.

VOTE EARLY AND OFTEN

Filed under: Awards — Patterico @ 8:22 am

Wizbang’s 2003 Weblog Awards are open for polling. Patterico’s Pontifications is nominated for Best Marauding Marsupials Ecosystem Level Blog. If you enjoy Patterico and would like to vote for his blog, you can do so by clicking here.

I need your vote!

And you can vote early and often. You can vote once every 12 hours, through December 14, 2003. So bookmark the location of the Marauding Marsupials contest, and give your voting fingers regular exercise!

P.S. The Ecosystem is explained here. The list of Marauding Marsupials is here. The list is fluid, based on ever-changing hit counter statistics; it is where this blog was at the time of the nominations.

P.P.S. In the first iteration of this post (up for only about 10 minutes) I incorrectly stated that Patterico was the only Bear Flagger nominated in this category. I don’t know how I overlooked e-Claire. In any event, this poses no problem for the League. Vote for whichever you like best — but if you feel torn between us, vote for one of us in the first 12-hour period of the day, and the other in the second 12-hour period! That way you will be elevating the Bear Flaggers above the rest, without favoring one over the other.

P.P.P.S. Patterico is now tied for the top spot with “The Bitch Girls.” Hmmm.

I note it now because I expect this can’t last. Anyway, thanks for the votes.

WIZBANG’S 2003 WEBLOG AWARDS

Filed under: Awards — Patterico @ 6:37 pm

Nominate a blog for Wizbang’s 2003 Weblog Awards. Should you wish to second Patterico’s self-serving nomination based on Ecosystem categories, he is currently a Marauding Marsupial. Or you could “fourth” his nomination for Best New Blog.

Or, I suppose, you could nominate some other blog. If you really wanted to.
