Lets make it happen for Perry!

Citizen-003528 on December 22, 2011 at 3:07 PM

It’s been a long time since I was excited about choosing “Lawn Gnome” as a viable candidate. My how quickly the times change.

Merry Christmas everyone. Lorien, always good to see you :-)

BruthaMan on December 22, 2011 at 3:14 PM

I nominated gophergirl

More categories:

Least missed: crr6

Most missed: crr6

Favorite newbie: Flora Duh

Batshit craziest: ernesto

I’m sure we can think up more categories, but not enough for Not Coach or me to win anything. And I try so hard.

novaculus on December 22, 2011 at 3:23 PM

We are trying to make happen for Perry also .

csdeven for the win.

steebo77 on December 22, 2011 at 2:13 PM

You were my first choice for best commenter, but you said poo-poo once and that put you down just a little bit.

Sorry.

lol..That was hilarious..:)

Dire Straits on December 22, 2011 at 4:31 PM

I voted for Cindy Munford. Smart, Respectful, Kind.

Also, this marks the first time I supported Santorum as a first choice. Said Gingrich would make a good Veep.

Awww geez, thank you. I’m humbled.

Flora Duh on December 22, 2011 at 5:11 PM

I wish they had listed ‘Ham Sandwich’ along with ‘Lawn Gnome & Obama’ as candidates.

I really like Ham Sandwiches!!

Pecozbill on December 22, 2011 at 5:12 PM

I should’ve done what cartooner did and chosen Obama for “who did the most for the movement”, but I went with TeaParty (all one word since Patrick was insisting on a “last name”, lol) because we are reaping what they sowed in last year’s election. They’ve driven me crazy this cycle — hopping from one silly, unserious candidate to the next — but they deserve all the credit for the 2010 midterms.

For commenter, I chose Allahpundit because I love it when he posts in his threads and mixes it up with us… he’s usually really snarky, smacking idiots, or genuinely engaging/asking questions of his readers.

Aslans Girl on December 22, 2011 at 5:40 PM

I made sure to lie about all my survey answers again. I wanted to give the Fig Newtons here some false hope.

MJBrutus on December 22, 2011 at 5:59 PM

I really like Ham Sandwiches!!

Pecozbill on December 22, 2011 at 5:12 PM

Ham Sandwich In 2012 !!

Tim_CA on December 22, 2011 at 6:00 PM

Scott Walker. Courage and Truth Personified.

balkanmom on December 22, 2011 at 7:46 PM

Lawdawg86 on December 22, 2011 at 2:49 PM

voted for ryan as well

cmsinaz on December 22, 2011 at 7:53 PM

liberal4life is the most hated

gerrym51 on December 22, 2011 at 8:07 PM

I voted for hawkdriver. It was close as I also thought of Cindy Munford. I like the way hawk smack downs idiotic posters. Mrs Cindy is just classy nice all over

karenhasfreedom on December 22, 2011 at 9:00 PM

I nominated Aslan’s Girl! Presidential Primary and death of bin Laden were the top stories IMHO. Oh, and I’ll take the Lawn Gnome over President Zero, too :) :) :)

louisianapatriette on December 22, 2011 at 9:24 PM

I nominated gophergirl

GW_SS-Delta on December 22, 2011 at 3:18 PM

Ahhhhh thank you. That is so sweet :)

Here’s hoping next year we are all making final plans to meet in DC for his swearing in.

That would be the best Christmas present ever!

gophergirl on December 22, 2011 at 10:55 PM

You’re going to make me search the entire year to figure out who got the most Comment of the Days out of me? Really?

No way! Aw, thank you so very much, you’re very sweet and I’m honored!

Aslans Girl on December 22, 2011 at 11:48 PM

KATY the mean old lady !! She zaps the trolls pretty darn good !!
bishop is ALWAYS entertaining
hawkdriver is my heart – thank you for your service !!!
Cindy M. is always a CLASS ACT !!!!
too many favorites to list !!

Perry for President
Gingrich for VP because he could ‘handle’ the senate…
but West would be awesome VP. He would POUND the ‘o’ into the ground and not even blink.

kennedyk49 on December 23, 2011 at 12:01 AM

Oh, yes, and I chose Perry/West as my dream ticket, and Lawn Gnome over O any day of the week!

Aslans Girl on December 23, 2011 at 12:26 AM

Perry/ Jindal
Huntsman
Romney
Lawn Gnome
Cindy Mumford.
How’s that?

annoyinglittletwerp on December 23, 2011 at 12:59 AM

I picked Scott Walker for Republican of the Year.

Yep I did too.

Since we are going with categories.. Can I suggest Pablo Honey for least likely to add anything of value to Christian threads?

melle1228 on December 23, 2011 at 2:02 AM

Didn’t we elect a lawn gnome in 2008 as our nominee?!?

The Nerve on December 23, 2011 at 4:50 AM

I’ll always be a commenting bit player, but I enjoy a lot of the commenters here.

BKennedy on December 23, 2011 at 5:24 AM

lawn gnome 2012

IowaWoman on December 23, 2011 at 9:50 AM

I just voted, but I don’t think it counts? Confusion reigns.

SouthernGent on December 23, 2011 at 11:50 AM

I picked Scott Walker for Republican of the Year.

Y-not on December 22, 2011 at 2:04 PM

I’m proud to call this man my governor.

Jetboy … like the guys who make me laugh.

After reading the Lourdes meltdown thread, have to add steebo77 to the list–perhaps the best one-liner I’ve ever read.

Italia on December 23, 2011 at 1:15 PM

Bah. Don’t have a “favorite commenter”. We all know the straws that stir the drink. Story of the year: the endless runup to the primaries. Republican of the year would have to be Scott Walker.

ddrintn on December 23, 2011 at 2:33 PM

SCOTT WALKER

liberty787 on December 23, 2011 at 3:30 PM

Come on America, save our country and vote for a srtrong leader. Governor Perry has been the 800 pound political gorilla since he even thought about getting in – because of PROVEN CONSERVATIVE GOVERNANCE, the Texas record on jobs, and his electoral success (i.e. never lost one).
I pray that Governor Perry will fight his way back into this with a good showing in Iowa – that the field will thin out – and that with four or so podiums instead of 8 he will look much more credible as a POTUS.
A good man. A great American. Goodspeed, Governor Perry.

Italia on December 23, 2011 at 1:15 PM

And what was that remark by that jerk? Writing in comments that I ‘used meth’ or some similar ghastly nastiness?

HA commenting standards are pretty grim if that’s what you consider a worthy “one-liner.”

By the way, your list there sucks.

Lourdes on December 23, 2011 at 6:17 PM

Italia on December 23, 2011 at 1:15 PM

And isn’t it convenient how “anonymous” commenters write crud on the internet about other people and never are brave enough to reveal their own identity?

steebo and his (and your) lot melted down a long, long time ago. I’m just fine and have decided not even your crap will ruin my Merry Christmas.

Lourdes on December 23, 2011 at 6:19 PM

Lourdes on December 23, 2011 at 6:19 PM

I’m sorry; I don’t recall mentioning anything about ‘meth.’ The comment to which I refer was an innocent remark—nothing derogatory, and therefore I found it amusing. Look around at the world in which we live. I choose to go through life with a sense of humor. It makes things bearable. Of course you would think my list sucks because, again, I have a sense of humor.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
