A voice of reason.
And yet we still don't allow the squirrels to right to open casinos.
visiting slog this week is a nightmare come true, with all these goddamn squirrels everywhere.
but, man, you guys get the good weed.
This is some kind of reverse psychology trick!
Just to be on the safe side, I've been voting Slog from work and Squirrels from home. Either way, I welcome my new overlords!
any catch the "Vote Squirrel '06" flyer hammertacked to the Stranger's front gate this AM? haha
Your goddamn spam filter gobbled up my SUPER OUTSTANDING squirr*l c*sino joke. Darn it.
Actually there are two species of squirrel here in the Pacific Northwest, the red squirrel and the grey squirrel. The grey squirrel is a non-native east coast transplant, and far out-numbers the native red squirrel. In fact red squirrels are almost entirely absent from urban areas altogether as they have been pushed out by their bigger more agressive east coast cousins; you can basically assume that any squirrel you encounter is decendent from east coast bully blood and does not take precedence over the Stranger. Vote Stranger.
And the black squirrel is chopped liver?
This is right up there with Gov. Gregoire's non-decision on the Viaduct as one of the most embarassing and blatant cop-outs of the year.
Squirrels don't need Slog's support! They already rule!
k. in the event of a tie the urban hunter should be locked in a dark closet, drunk and naked with a healthy smattering of peanut butter on his sack, with a squirrel that has been starved for a week. after an hour the winner should be self evident ;)
I used to have a teacher in Highschool that would rant about the transplanted grey squirels. In the right situation we could get him to waste 20 minutes of class time talking about grey squirels and how they were destroying the eco system.
I vote Slog!
Savage just knows that's he can't beat the squirrels, and so his tactic is to join them at the last minute to be able to claim victory.

Enough with the rodents!!! Can't we just go back to all the hot pieces you put on the cover?
I've only seen black squirrels in Vancouver, and then there are the white squirrels in the Midwest.
I hope the Stranger will soon publish an all-squirrel issue soon (maybe early April).
well, i guess it's too late to write in construction cranes.
The tie rages on. In the meantime, suggest a fitting championship prize.
We're leaning toward massive bag of nuts. BTW, we're *not* voting on the prize. No more polls this year!
thinking the squirrels might win out, me and a friend of mine tried to get their representative's reaction:
Sensing the biddings of a Higher Squirrel?
Dan is a surrender monkey.
Yes, I agree that this is a lily-livered cop-out! Now when you loose the election you will just say, "well, we let them have it." If you win, you'll say, "Wow, even when WE endorsed the squirrels we won! We must be so great!"
