Mission Accomplished

Thank you very much!
Thank you very much!

That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me

--Thank You Very Much
, Scrooge (1970)

How 'bout them transparent dangling carrots

How 'bout that ever elusive kudo
--Thank You
, Alanis Morrisette

I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks

--William Shakespeare


We won, we won! You like us! Thank you one and all for voting Ranger, Best Progressive Florida National Blog from the Florida Democratic Party Netroots Coalition. Our shameless grandstanding hit the target, and you got out the vote. Thanks.

We now know what it's like to win a contest based on votes alone. One knows one was the most popular, but not necessarily the best. (Well, in this case, the best.) So with Obama and McCain who are also fighting a personality contest, as we have no Solomon to mediate such matters (or any matter, for that matter.)

We'll just have to hope for Surowiecki's wisdom of crowds to prevail. In that vein, if anyone knows what the logo represents, please tell us.

At first glance it is a stylized Pacman. On second, it appears to be a blue and orange billiard ball wearing a yellow hardhat. Why a billiard ball would need a hardhat escapes us. Blue and orange are the colors of the University of Florida football team, which we must oppose out of reflex, hailing from Tallahassee as we do.

Well deserved!!!

I suspect the logo is an eyeball of 'der Aligator', albeit in the mod U-of-F colors.

Hooray for Jim and Lisa! You are the conscience of this little spit of ancient coral reef they call the Sunshine State. I wish I could organize a militia of all you brave old soldiers and march on Washington.

that's a great idea arkhamite, but, too many of us old soldiers (and, in my case, sailors) remember what happened to "the bonus army."

sometimes gathering in a group is not the best tactical idea.

those of us from special forces backgrounds can be far more dangerous operating independantly. it's much easier to hide.

Fantastic and congratulations. I know the competition was keen -- I read and love "Bark bark woof woof" so it was a tough task.

Well done!
