Vote for ME!

I spend an awful lot of time entertaining and informing my loyal readers, and I don’t ask much in return: a little beer money, the occasional fawning e-mail… and of course, your blind obedience in voting the following categories in the Seattle Weekly’s “Best of Seattle” poll:

3. Best local talk radio host: David Goldstein
8. Best local website: Pacific Northwest Portal
9. Best local blog:
11. Best activist/hell raiser: David Goldstein
14. Best scandal: Dino Rossi’s meritless election contest
15. Best local cause: ending homelessness
16. Best reform we need: a state income tax
42. Best fish market: Tim Eyman

The deadline is today, at 5 PM, so if you haven’t already done so… cast your ballot now.

Yeah, I know I’ve already asked you once before, and this shameless act of self-promotion is incredibly childish and petty… but then, I never claimed not to be childish and petty. The folks at (un)Sound Politics asked their readers to vote a slate, and frankly I just don’t want to give them the satisfaction of winning. Do you?

Of course you’re always free to vote your conscience, but could you really live with yourself if that lying sack of shit (u)SP won best blog?

    Asking Cynical or prr to vote their conscience is liking asking water to flow uphill. They have no conscience. No thought process either.

  3. 5

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    My vote for
    Most Fiscally Responsible Citizen: Richard Pope
    Best Money Sleuth: Richard Pope
    Person to most likely Embarrass King County (Besides Logan, Huennekens, Phillips & Sims): Richard Pope

    Read the article in today’s Seattle TImes about King County’s Unclaimed Property. He found almost 400 Unclaimed Property Items. Way to go Richard!

    Hell, I found 7 for my little County.

  4. 6

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    So, Cynical, how many times have you voted in the SW poll and under how many different assumed names?

  5. 8

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Have you voted under each of your 93 identities you use to post shit on these Blogs like Don/Alan/DubyaSux/Priscilla/thatPrick/on & on & on???

    Not everyone needs more than 1 identity Sybil!!!!

  6. 10

    prr spews:


    As to Cynical votoing under assumed names, just think of it this way. As, SW offices are in king county, If he kept coming back under assumed names and using provisional ballots, he would have a margin of at least 1,600 votes before it would be considered illegal.

  7. 11

    prr spews:

    Best Local cause: Firing Dean Logan/Ron simms
    Best Happy Hour? King County Elections Office
    Best Specialty Cocktail? 2004 Governors Electtion
    Best Splurge? Absentte Ballotts
    Best Street Performer? Joel Horn
    Best Reason To Leave Seattle? David Goldstein
    Best Place to get your hands Dirty? King County Elections

    dj spews:

    And, don’t forget,

    Best Washington white wine: “I want do-overs!” from Republican Whineries.

  9. 15

    righton spews:

    Best Democrat machine victory; owning the KCRE machine meant victory in the Gov race

  10. 16


    I alreadly voted, and although I forget what was on my ballot – I know I did NOT vote for you and I did vote for KVI.

    I also voted for Reagan Dunn as “Best Local Politician”. You can guess why… or click HERE.

    After clicking there, you can guess why I called the biggest scandal something w/ the initials K.C.E.

    3. Best local talk radio host: David Goldstein

    When and where did you ever host a radio show Goldy?

    Dumbest DumbAsses:The LEFTIST PINHEAD Cult of Seattle

    Group Most likely to get squashed by a falling Viaduct: The LEFTIST PINHEAD Cult of Seattle

    Group Who Wastes the Most Tax Dollars Mistaking Motion for Action: The LEFTIST PINHEAD Cult of Seattle

    Hey Goldy, if Dean “Weird Al Yankovic lookalike” Logan and Bill “Pocket-protector” Huennekens are in charging of counting the ballots, you are a shoe-in!

  13. 23

    windie spews:

    most 1 track blog commentator: Mr. Cynical
    worst abuser of TYPING IN CAPS: Mr. Cynical
    most unoriginal catchphrase: LEFTIST PINHEAD
    most Bitter loser: Mr. Irr./Cyn. or maybe Dino Rossi, your pick!

    christmasghost spews:

    goldy…if you actually have to tell people how to vote are they really voting their concience….or your ego?
    you can always go out and just buy yourself a trophy you know….that’s pretty much what you are doing right now.

  15. 26

    Goldy spews:

    Ghost @25,

    Well… duh-uh!

    Online polls are entirely bogus, as they are so easy to be freeped. But hell if I’m going to let the other side freep it unchallenged, and then claim some kind of a victory.

    This is a game, and little more.

  16. 27

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Someday Goldy’s gonna be famous
    Does he have talent…well, noooo.
    These days you don’t really need it.
    Thanks to reality shows.

    Cuz when Goldy’s a celebrity
    It’s adios reality.
    Goldy acts just like a fool
    And PINHEADS think he’s cool
    Just cuz he’s on a blog.

    Goldy can throw a major fit
    When his latte isn’t just how he likes it.
    When people say Goldy’s insane
    Goldy blames it on the fame
    And pressures that go with.
    Bein’ a celebrity!

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Say, isn’t this Monday, a work day? Does Mr. Cynical ever do any work? More to the point, does he bill his clients for the time he spends posting on HorsesAss? Just curious …

  18. 29

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    I voted only once, and I got each of my 7,185 children (i.e., the cute fluffy little baby bunnies running loose in Green Lake Park) to vote once — so that’s 7,186 votes for Goldy.

    Best scandal — Karl Rove’s treason, which I notice is hitting MSM big today.

  19. 30

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    I’m retired…just like you. Although I don’t have a fat guv’mint pension like you do. I have to manage my properties I’ve bought over the years. Just had my first tenant bounced check today. I also have to invest our cash & retirement funds so I can pay taxes so assholes like you can have a free-ride.

    And I’m also tired…of assholes just like you.

    But I enjoy the verbal jousting RR!
    Hell, if you didn’t have me to slap around, we’d be seeing you on Jerry Springer!

    christmasghost spews:

    goldy…..god, you are just too funny sometimes. “yeah it’s totally BOGUS [dude] but i just HAVE TO WIN.”
    if it’s totally bogus should we all just ignore the “best hell raiser-activist” thing at the top of your blog? what else is bogus? are any of your opinions really real either….or just theater?

  21. 33

    Goldy spews:

    Ghost… I think most of my readers do a pretty good job of discerning what is theater and what is not. For those few cases where I intentionally blur the line… well… that’s what makes it interesting.

  22. 34

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Goldy has his ass covered…..
    Whenever he says something stoopid & outrageous, he just says “it’s theatre”!!! KOOL!!
    All of the LEFTIST PINHEADS are doing “The Goldy”….they talk out of their ass, finally realize how stoopid they are, THEN say “I’m just kidding”!
    That’s what 4 year-olds do Goldy.

    Standup and be a man Goldy. Speak the truth at all times. Standup Goldy….oh, you are standing….all 5’7″ of you!

    Mr. Cynical @ 30

    I feel for ya, man. I was a landlord once and I’ll never do it again. Looks like I planned my retirement better than you planned yours … I don’t have to depend on tenant checks to eat.
