Austin Chronicle Best Of...

AUCHRON.jpgThe AusChron is once again running their 'Best of...' list. I've found the thing to be largely hit or miss mostly because these things seem loaded down vote-wise by granola fucks who think healthy food ROCKS and that Ginny's Little Longhorn is just unbelievably cool because they have Lone Star... and not much else.

Not to mention that this ballot is arduous...ChronPeople, I salute you for taking the inputs from these ballots and turning them into awards. That's an assload of work. And I hope you're well compensated for it. Seriously, you deserve a fucking amazing party and the kind of bonus money that would make Paris Hilton blush.

But back to the voting... Here's a link directly topolitics and personalities. And here are a few of our humble suggestions...

Local Issue - Traffic Congestion/Mass Transit

News Story - Toby's reign of EVIL ends

Scandal - That Brewster is STILL on Council

Elected Official - Will Wynn

State Legislator - Eddie Rodriguez.

Council Member - He Who Stands Up To Toby

Unsung Behind-the-Scenester - Matt Curtis

Job - Following behind Mindy Montford with one of her signs after the County Convention

Public Service - Cleaning up shit? Somewhere? We really are not at all about this.

Nonprofit Group - Human Rights Campaign

Activist - Garry Brown

Local Politics Blog - Your choice... we'd say go for us, but honestly while we are based in Austin, we write as much about the rest of the state and the country as we do about Austin. And the last time I checked, there are only about 500 people who are physically IN Austin who read us on a daily basis. I think more people read us in Dallas than here... and I HATE Dallas like a motherfucking rash.

BOR would also be a good choice, as would EOW and TK.

Local Politics Blogger - Eh, vote for Mayor McSleaze. I want to see him get angry if he wins.

Grassroots Movement - Texans for Mark Thompson (seriously, WAS there a bigger surprise in the primary?!?!?!)

Environmentalist - Marguerite Jones. The rest of those fools are triflin'.

As for the rest of the ballot, feel free to fill out as much as you'd like. Just say nothing of that Place That Shall Not Be Named In Midtown Where You Can Still Smoke Inside. And tell them Trudy's is your favorite restaurant.

But Mr. McBlogger, you're way too modest. Let's put you in the Wild Card selection.
