Re: Marvin Says: Vote Early, Vote Often!

No one is stumping for their platform?

No one offering free rep clicks in return for votes?

No one badmouthing the other candidates?

What is this forum coming to?

Re: Marvin Says: Vote Early, Vote Often!

I don't want to start slinging mud at my opponents, but...oh, what the heck.

Two of my opponents clearly did NOT follow the campaign rules, which clearly stated that the running mate had to be an EBAY auction. Running with a craigslist post is akin to running for president without being born in America.

Also, people voting for LISmama810 should vote TODAY. People voting for other candidates should vote TOMORROW.

I'm LISmama810 and I approved this message.

Re: Marvin Says: Vote Early, Vote Often!

Hey, Nikki said Ebay *OR* Craigslist.

I'm only giving the people what they asked for.

Yes, I'm Starlight, and I listen to the people and give them what they want!



Plus, my running mate? Actually in this country! Who wants a running mate who is cruising around other countries?

Nikki obviously has no idea what she's talking about.

Re: Marvin Says: Vote Early, Vote Often!

I'm not trying to sway the election but I'm going on the record here and announcing my official endorsement of QuasEE and her running mate Renolux-the-Deathtrap. I praise all the other candidates (the Houdini seat was a great find!) but QuassEE's pick was in a league of its own.

Now I have to figure out if it's worth driving to Secaucus (an hour away) to pick up that deathtrap. I'm not scared of too many things (spiders don't bother me, snakes are fine as long as they're outside, heights and enclosed spaces are no problem) but the sight of that seat gave me shivers!

LOL

I've got a feeling that I'll be buying the Houdini seat when this is all over, regardless of the distance. Blech. It's definitely one of those props for ingenuity, and hey, the clips are atleast in the right place, but It's all I can do not to flag it. LOL

Re: Marvin Says: Vote Early, Vote Often!

I can't see the seats. I am at work and ebay and craiglist are blocked. I am frustrated. I did see Starlights yesterday when I wasn't at work (before the kids needed me), so I voted for hers by default. Will someone post the pics somewhere?
