More chances to vote.

So Sandy at the Aristocrats has unwittingly started a little poll. The US forces are apparently starting another door-to-door sweep of Baghdad, so Sandy wants them to be constructive about it. So far we've got them selling:

Vacuum Cleaners


Trick or Treat

And my own contribution

Watchtower Magazine

Here's where you go to contribute your idea.


And has anyone else heard of this A-hole of the Year competition? It was a little involved because you had to vote in comments for the top ten. Voting is over, but I'll be interested to see who the winners are. If you just want to suggest a single winner, feel free to do so in comments, but I warn you, it's a tough choice. Think about it:

Jack Abramoff. Samuel Alito. George Allen. Glenn Beck. William Bennett. John Bolton. George W. Bush. Dick Cheney. Mark Foley. Alberto Gonzales. Nancy Grace. Rudy Guiliani. Rev. Ted Haggard. Katherine Harris. Dennis Hastert. Christopher Hitchens. Brit Hume. Joe Lieberman. Rush Limbaugh. Michelle Malkin. John McCain. Ken Mehlman. Dick Morris. Rupert Murdoch. Bill O'Reilly. Condoleezza Rice. Michael Richards. Pat Robertson. Karl Rove. Donald Rumsfeld. Rick Santorum. Antonin Scalia. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Rep. Jean Schmidt. O.J. Simpson. Tony Snow. Ted Stevens. Cal Thomas. Donald Trump. Chris Wallace.

Edited way down from their list, but still.


  1. Those Watchtower magazine guys even piss me off. One can only imagine how an Islamic fundamentalist will react. Anyway, brilliant suggestion BG. I doubt anyone will top that.

  2. As to the A-hole competition, the field doesn't exactly seem to lack quality candidates does it? DICK CHENEY SHOT A GUY IN THE FACE, and he barely makes the top ten. Look how far down the list is O.J. Simpson! And the odious mAnn Coulter isn't even there. Malkin, O'Reilly and Limbaugh are going to tease the heck out of her.

    If there was a collective/group category I would have to give my vote to the US Congress and Senate for passing the execrable Military Commissions Act. With provisions that suspend habeas corpus and allow for the torture of detainees, the act immolates the Constitution and buries the ashes.

    This is a no brainer.

    Sell hope instead of bullets and bombs.

    If that doesn't work. Marijuana.

    Because US troops need to do less killing and more relaxing.

    Legalize marijuana and illegalize war.

  4. Hey Blue Gal,

    Your site is amazing! Once I saw the "The only bush I trust is my own," I WAS SOLD. I love the commentary and your creative images. Consider it bookmarked. Also, would you be interested in a link exchange? I write on many topics and am a liberal blogger myself.

    Keep up the good work and spread the word. Dems in '08!!!

    They're all such GOOD choices! I choose Arnold Schwarzenegger. He has more power, I think, than aging Pat Robertson. He would also like to change the rule that says you have to be born in the U.S. to run for president.

    I'll add "anonymous" - as in anonymous comment-leavers - to that list.

    And where's Sean Hannity?

    I think the Watchtower idea is brilliant! :) Maybe we can send them all our uneaten fruitcake, as well.

    I don't know how I could even vote for one person off that list -- I would have to vote my top 10. 5 at the very least.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
