Finally, My Vote Counts

Congressional Catfight: Dewey Defeats Truman - Wonkette

Wonkette is doing this bizarre Congressional Catfight thing where people vote on which of two members of Congress would win in a "no-holds barred catfight." I should be pissed about this--the bracket included six women, one openly gay man, and one closeted one--but how can I be angry when democracy works?

You see, I voted yesterday, and today the results are in: Barney Frank, the openly-gay Democrat from Massachusetts, beat Katherine Harris, the openly-bitch Republican from Florida, by ONE VOTE. My vote, in other words.

Here's hoping he can bearhug Nancy Pelosi into submission in the finals...

Hate to burst your bubble, but it appears as if your vote didn't count. There were "voting iregularites" and a revote was had with Harris winning. Sorry
