Vote for Slog!

posted by on December 7 at 19:03 PM

I’m not sure what we’re voting for, but CHS has pitted our widdle blog against their own widdle blog in some sort of poll or something. I read the CHS post three times and I still can’t quite figure out if winning this poll is better than losing, but right now CHS is crushing Slog. CHS has almost 80% of 28 votes cast, which would be, uh, nearly 22.4 votes. Or something.

This can not stand! Vote for Slog!

UPDATE: Slog has pulled ahead—Slog now leads CHS by nearly 30 points—but we can’t rest until the polls close. And, uh, I don’t know when that is exactly. So we’re going to keep the phone banks open and we’re going to crank up our GOTV efforts and we’re going to make sure every vote gets counted. Vote Slog!

UPDATE 2: A commenter points out that CHS has a cute little kitten. “What do you have, Dan?” We’ve got him:


UPDATE 3: Well, we’ve learned that the polls will close tonight. It’s 10:45 PM now, and with just one hour and a half left to vote, Slog is crushing CHS. Slog’s lead—74% to 26%—calls to mind the Cantwell/McGavick and Casey/Santorum vote totals from earlier this month. If Slog’s lead holds, Slog is going to go until the weekend with a strong mandate. A mandate to do what? We don’t know. But we have earned political capital in this election and we intend to spend it.

UPDATE 4: Going in to today’s election, CHS feared “a slaughter of Shoprite vs. Walgreens proportions.” In that recent election Shopright gave Walgreens a thumping, the former besting the latter 62% to 38%. Worried about their standing, CHS choose a little kitten as its running mate. But the kitten was an ineffective campaigner and did not do well in its one debate with the Stranger’s mascot, the boy shown above. Now, with less than an hour—we think—left to vote, Slog is pounding CHS 76% to 24%.

Where’s your kitten now, CHS?

UPDATE 4: It’s shortly before midnight and the final numbers are in: Slog 76%, CHS 24%. Slog has been waiting for CHS to make the traditional call to concede the race. Apparently CHS has no intention of conceding—graciously or otherwise. This short statement was released moments ago by the CHS campaign:

We don’t really want to talk about what happened…. We’re hurt.

Hmph. Soreloserman. But it’s been a long night. The people have spoken. God bless America.

Slog's pathetic call for votes seems to be working. You're ahead now. (Of course, I can't resist pathos and voted for you.)

We should have paired the Slog with this. Oh well. Good luck in the next round, Sloggers. ShopRite is a tough competitor.

Dan, you're up against ShopRITE next Thursday so stay humble, my man. Sloggers, we've moved on to a much more important neighborhood battle today.

Wow, is there that little to do in Seattle on a thursday night? 4 updates?

That kitten never had a chance against the boy.

Wow StrangerDanger - that's more than twice as many votes at CHS actually received in the poll.

Must be satisfying to know your time there was so well spent.

Keep up the good work, you're doin' a heck of a job.
