Poll: Who Will Be Our Next Front Page Guest Editors?

UPDATE: Congratulations to Voyageur and ProgressiveCowgirl, your front page editors for the first half of 2013.


This poll (after the jump) is an election for two new front page guest editors at Colorado Pols. The new editors will start January 1st, and barring anything unexpected will hold their position until the June 2013–at which time we’ll have another election. Remember, there’s only one poll of nominees, and the top two finishers will win the coveted front page editor spots.

Due to the field of excellent nominees competing for two available slots, this will be a “multi-vote” poll. You may vote for your two (or more) top choices for front page editor.

Good luck to our nominees, voting ends at 7:30 PM Sunday night. New account creation, currently disabled, will be restored at that time. Remember, we are closely monitoring voting to prevent cheating, so please don’t bother trying.

Happy voting!

    Vote Willard Smitten and be free of the nany-state political brinkmanship.

  2. Willard Smitten says:

    That is the question you must ask, dearest Polsters, when judging the reign of tyrants like PCG.  And Club Twitty, that guy is so washed up reused, spin cycled out its like re-electing Mitch McConnell over and over again in spite of all reason to the contrary.  I, Willard Smitten, am the Ashley Judd of this election!

  3. BlueCat says:

    that I was nominated. As usual, I don’t feel prepared to and will not serve. Just saying this as a precaution since I consider it  highly unlikely that I’d win but please don’t vote for me! To all those who wouldn’t dream of voting for me, my heartfelt thanks.

    Too many good posters to choose from. Something tells me we’ll be in good hands.

  5. Duke Coxdukeco1 says:

    But, didn’t SSG Dan have to leave because of a job? Did that change?

  6. poodlelord says:

    Does the site need them?. From December 1st to yesterday, 54 diaries have been front paged (Open Thread, Friday Jam, and FPE announcement excluded). Of these, 35 were Colorado Pols (65%); an additional 10 were Jason Salzman’s promoted by Colorado Pols. Together these make 83% of front paged diaries.

    As near as I can tell, only one diary in the month of December (PTF promoted by Club Twitty on 12 -13) got promoted by an elected FPE. So what’s the point?

    but Ari’s allways shown an ability to see both sides to a reasonable degree.

    I saw the Sarge’s name, and can only hope.

    BC, PCG, and the Duke.

    This is an impressive group.

    What? You think Voyageur and Progressive Cowgirl paid us by check? You can’t follow a cash money trail, Pols.

  9. VoyageurVoyageur says:

    Personally, I voted for PC and BlueCat, before noting BlueCat’s disclaimer.

      But seriously, thanks to the pols community for this honor and I’ll try to live up to it.

    Sniff sniff…

    Just kidding. Congrats to PC and Voyageur. Looking forward to a new half year of diaries and discussion.

  11. ProgressiveCowgirlProgressiveCowgirl says:

    I will accept “Nate Silver” as my new nickname.

    Seriously, though, thanks to those who saw fit to give me a fourth term, and I regret only that I can’t serve with all three of the above described nominees. Thanks especially for keeping me around after I spent the last week convincing most of you I’m a blithering gun nut. I felt sure I was headed out this time, after some of the replies recently. I’ll try to do a better job of figuring out where I stand before announcing my opinions in the future, as Blue especially has illustrated to me that I need some improvement on that score.

  12. ClubTwitty says:

    Why wasn’t I mailed my ballot?  GESLER!

  13. Willard Smitten says:

    I want a recount.  Hanging chads.  

  14. Duke Coxdukeco1 says:

    a couple of heavyweight braniacs, were there ever such. This is going to be a very interesting session at the state Capitol…

    power shifts..seismic policy changes…monumental constitutional battles…an oil and gas guy on the first floor…

    You two will be busy…thanks for serving!

  15. Sir RobinSir Robin says:

    On second thought, can I deliver it personally to Voyageur and PC across the coffee table in Arvada?

    Thanks to the 6 who voted for me. I was pleasantly surprised.

  17. Diogenesdemar says:

    new state-of-the-art platform, the FPE will enjoy vast, almost limitless,  powers.  This brave new will be a markedly different paradigm.  Couple that with holography and 3-D printing, and you have the recipe for untold liberty and learning, or immense tyranny and destruction.

    Choose wisely . . . or perish.  

  18. ProgressiveCowgirlProgressiveCowgirl says:

    Post-election and pre-legislative session.

  19. Diogenesdemar says:

    these days . . .

    It’s your destiny, BC.  

  20. GalapagoLarryGalapagoLarry says:

    It’s all held together with safety pins.

  21. ProgressiveCowgirlProgressiveCowgirl says:

    I submit that under my admittedly tyrannical reign, our children IS learning! In fact, Libertad learned to fuck off during my third term, defying nearly universal predictions that he would NEVER learn he was unwanted here.

  22. ProgressiveCowgirlProgressiveCowgirl says:

    To notice and decline his nomination.

    I miss him :(

  23. Pam Bennett says:

    No outright bribery or giving out of bottles of cheap booze either. Or any chipped ballots.

    The Cadillac, as usual, went to the Big Green PC Machine;-(

  26. AristotleAristotle says:

    If I’d won the Caddy, I would have traded it in for these and a more sensible family car.

  27. ProgressiveCowgirlProgressiveCowgirl says:

    And invested in sock puppets…

    This Caddy doesn’t look like it’ll pull a horse trailer though.

  28. BlueCat says:

    and I’m honored that you’d think of voting for me.

  29. Gray in Mountains says:

    you are just beginning with guns and their lingo You are such a rookie with that propaganda. It takes a few years to completely intenalize it. Congrats on your re-election

  30. Duke Coxdukeco1 says:

    brainiacs, I guess. Where is that damned edit button?…can’t find it anywhere…

  31. Gray in Mountains says:

    Merry Xmas Smitten

  32. Willard Smitten says:

    rigged I say.  I hear that PCG’s brother-in-law owns share in Soapblox or at least I would like to start that unsubstantiated rumor.

  33. Gray in Mountains says:

    to the luncheon sausage dude. You’ll get your chance
