Well, Dilbert.com has ended its poll for the 2003 Weasels of the Year. Apparently, last year, a lot of Left-leaning personalities put up in the poll got voted for as Weasels, and the author said something to the effect of "It's just because some Right-wing site rallied its forces and stacked the poll." ... Right, because letting a bunch of people know about a poll so they can vote in it is tampering with the votes, right? I guess this means that if an election doesn't turn out the way you want, it's just because someone rallied support in those damn Right-wing states, and it doesn't really count...|
Er, anyway. The "winners" won't be announced until the 20th. (Why? It's an online poll, results should be available right away. The little tinhat angel on my shoulder says it's because this time, he wants to edit out any votes done by someone referred from a "Right-wing kook" site so it's "fair". The rational and cynical little angel on my other shoulder says it's probably more to do with his new book, The Way of the Weasel, coming out on the 21st. The devils are busy fucking each other.) But I wonder, if Left-wing people get voted as weasels again, he'll make some sort of similar statement...?
(Hm. Looks like no message boards on the site. Shame, probably would be a prime breeding ground for wank.)
