Say it. Just say it.

James Taranto . . . what a sense of humor on that guy, huh?

I like hot chicks.

I'm black and I'm proud.

I for one, have only voted for you. "Sorry, Sorry, Everbody." Nuff said.

Posted by: Scott B at December 10, 2004 05:41 PM

Hey, I boated too! Yeah, then I got seasick and threw up over the side and lost my retainer. Boy was my dad pissed. He didn't lay down 75 smackeroos just so I could straighten some shark's teeth!

Oh, you meant voted. Never mind.

Jim, I know I haven't kept in touch like I should, but I really didn't have anything important to say until now.

I very much need you to endorse "The Gleeson Bloglomerate" in the 1000-1750 category in the Web Awards.

I have been holding my own against this one mediocre blog whose only advantage has been to urge its readers, who are largely heroin dealers at grade schools, to cheat by using all the computers at their school libraries (for which by the way thank you, Bill Gates!). My only weapon against these underhanded tactics has been quality writing and funny drawings of young girls in tight shorts.

Even so, I was keeping a slim lead (about 40 votes ahead right now), but I've learned that the owner of this blog has acquired a powerful ally, and now as a result, a pretty high-traffic blog will be specifically targeting me for destruction all weekend.

And when someone mentioned that I was your good friend, you should hear what this bastard said about you! Well, no, you shouldn't hear it; I shan't repeat it.

I thank you in advance, for I know you will do the right thing.

Apparently, that comment about how conservatives don't have a sense of humor is true. But it wasn't about you or us, it was about the rest of them.

What is this, Daily Kos? Make with the free ice cream!

More left-wing pandering.

We haven't been punished enough.

Posted by: Brian Fanning at December 11, 2004 01:03 AM

I was going to vote for you, Jim. But then I thought, "ducks do have wings"! And he's a conservative duck! Thus, a right-wing duck.

You get it? It's cute. Like a puppy in a sock drawer -- that kind of cute. And who can vote against a puppy in a sock drawer? I certainly haven't met the person who can. But then, I don't hang out with demons and pederasts.

I've been getting these, well, "unintelligible" phone calls lately asking me to vote for you. I keep saying I did and I do but I can't get that point through to the caller. Puce again?

There should be a website where we can post pictures of ourselves saying "I'm sorry World, but I voted for Treacher." Not very consoling, I know, but at least there would be grist for the caption mill. Of, uh, one of those more funny sites.

Thanks for posting Michael Moore's "O" face!

Posted by: Sortelli at December 11, 2004 12:56 PM

Jim, just a follow-up:

Thank you for the e-mail you sent to my private address. I won't divulge the details here, but rest assured, that's all water under the bridge. I've remarried since then, and my new wife doesn't even LIKE leeches, so there's little chance of a reoccurrence.

And thank you especially for your "behind-the-scenes" work to put The Gleeson Bloglomerate back on top in that little category. After you explained your reasons, I fully agree that a prominent endorsement post might do more harm than good, what with you-know-who doing you-know what. You are quite right that this inconspicuous comment thread is the best place for it, all taken with all.

Should we put the actual link here for people to go vote for The Gleeson Bloglomerate? I'll leave that up to you.

All my best: Sean

I miss "Caller Go Ahead".

Good news, Jim. The results are back, and it wasn't dioxin!

Posted by: Sean Gleeson at December 12, 2004 01:48 AM

Y cant U show pics of your pet's that would be awesum thanks.

Posted by: Hax0r at December 12, 2004 04:24 PM

OK, bring on the Moore/Rall/Kos fansite. I think it'll be an interesting departure.

Um.... shit, I knew I was going to fuck up this post.

Posted by: Jim at December 15, 2004 08:27 AM

Sorry that I'm coming late to the party. You seem less concerned about being seen as a conservative blogger right about now.

Posted by: ugarte at December 16, 2004 09:21 AM

Huh? I'm only concerned with being seen as a funny blogger.

Posted by: Jim Treacher at December 16, 2004 10:20 AM

I don't know.

I know.
