Wampum’s Koufax Awards finalists have been announced, and HA has the distinct honor of making it into the final cut for Best State or Local Blog. All of the finalists are deserving, but because I am narcissistically impaired, and desperately crave the love and affirmation of strangers, I strongly urge you to vote for me. Simply click here, and leave “Horse’s Ass” in the comment thread. (And feel free to leave a testimonial.)
Two of my favorite locally produced blogs also made it into the finals, and in multiple categories, so if you have the time, please show them a little love too:
Most Humorous Blog: Jesus’ General.
Most Humorous Post: Jesus’ General, “Less painful than a crucifix”
Best Expert Blog: Orcinus.
Best Single Issue Blog: Orcinus.
Best Blog, Sponsored/Professional: Orcinus.
Jesus’ General is not only one of the funniest blogs out there, the General is also a constant reminder of the power of satire to effect real change. I love the General… in a manly, heterosexual way. And Orcinus is always a compelling read, both because of its often disturbing coverage of right-wing extremists, and because… well… Dave Neiwert is simply one of the best writers blogging.
So if you think we deserve it (and you want to cater to my fragile ego) please cast your votes. But please keep it honest… one vote, no freeping.
