Vote Vote Vote for Delingpole!

I’ve just been nominated for a Bloggie – the internet’s answer to the Oscars, though obviously far more significant, glamorous, and life changing.

Unlike the Oscars, the awards do not automatically go to someone of the liberal persuasion. In my category – Best Blog About Politics – the nominees include the very soundly Conservative American Thinker and the not-noticeably left-wing Politico. My great fear is that one that is going to win is the other nominee in the category – Occupy.

Anyway, what I’m asking for here, obviously, is your vote. I ask not for selfish reasons but for The Cause. It seems to me that of all the defiant statements you could make this year against the global Progressive hegemony, there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that is going to annoy liberals more than helping to secure a Delingpole victory in the Bloggies.

No really. It will be more politically incorrect than mowing down a whole school of baby polar bears in your Hummer; more satisfying than spraying an Occupy encampment with the thing these people most hate – hot, soapy water; more joyous than you’re going to feel till at least 2018 when America finally twigs that Obama really was the worst president in US history and you find yourselves a new Reagan to replace him.

Yes, that’s how important it is that you vote for me in these awards. (Oh, and do vote for Watts Up With That? in the best blog category, won’t you?). Here’s the link to the address again, it only takes a few seconds. Strike a blow for liberty, for justice, for Ricochet!

    Per my blog below, it’ll be no surprise you’ve got my vote! Hope the glamour and glitz won’t go to your head!

  2. mask

    How many carbon credits do I get for voting for you?

  3. Barkha Herman

    done :-D

  4. Percival

    As long as you promise – promisenot to sing I Dreamed a Dream on the next podcast.

    Or on any podcast.  Ever.

    James,

    What you don’t want “Climate Audit”  to win the science category.

  6. Kay Ludlow

    You’ve got my vote! And the votes of all my internet aliases… muahahahaha.

  7. Jo

    I love Climate Audit; I worship Steve McIntyre. But it’s a difficult one for me because I also love Jo Nova; am a great admirer of Tallbloke and I owe much to Watts Up With That. So you see, it’s not so easy a choice for me. · 18 minutes ago

    So you are saying popluar also means high quality when it comes to Science Blog nominations. If it were only true on the political side.

    Are my 100 votes so far over the top?  Just trying to emulate the Chicago Way.  You deserve to win.  For the People.

    I’m so Chicagoan I don’t even have a US birth certificate.

    There is apparently a PDF template if you’d like to do one up.

    From your lips to God’s ears . . .

    Every time you vote Delingpole, another bald eagle is saved.

  16. Jonathan Werner

    Done.  Now I suppose I should actually start reading your blog….;)

    Clandesteyn: It was an easy call to vote for you, but I agonized over my vote in the LGBT category, just above your (politics weblog) category.  It was a real Sophie’s/Sammy’s Choice. · 7 hours ago

    It seems to me highly discriminatory that I wasn’t considered eligible for the LGBT category. My children are often accusing me of being “totally gay”, after all.

  18. Edward Smith

    My vote is in.

  19. Edward Smith

    “sussed” means what you think.

    It’s not common parlance, though.

    Which is just jive.

    David Williamson

    James Delingpole

    “Twigged” means the same thing as “sussed” or “sussed out” and is used in the same way. This presumes, of course, that “sussed” is a familiar US usage. Is it? 

    Nope. Maybe wises up?

    But I am often confused between the English and American languages. · 8 hours ago

    I was stuck at first between you and Perez Hilton. Then I came down on your side because his gossip isn’t as manly. You’re welcome.
