  •  ok so mebbe I like Armando, too (none)
    but doncha think we give him more leverage for personality? he's an Uber-Male here in a very male place.

    and since this is all conducted in typing isn't Armando the sex-god name?

    •  He was the first "old timer" (none)
      to make me feel really welcome here. Honest.  I trust him when he says I missed him at his most asshole-ish.  But, he's got a real knack for arguing in the best sense of the word, not for the sake of making you agree with him, but the love of the give and take of ideas. That makes him a good "community" choice and it pleases the people who like tenacity at the same time.

      Isn't AGG female?

      •  I ground my teeth out one day (4.00)
        blogging against Armando, and thought I'd hate him forever. Ran up against him another time and the conversation was fresh and without undertones...I don't care if you like what the guy says, I have a great deal of respect for a man who doesn't hold grudges.

        (Even if it's only because he's too stoned to remember his previous arguments.)

        Just kidding about that stoned part.

        No I'm not.

        Yes I am.

      •  he makes us swoon (none)
        yuh, I got that to as a newbie. only trying to point it out.

        obviously, I have a little fleabite in my mind that says ok, there can be such a thing as "I chose people irregardless of gender", but I'm still scratching a mosquito bite that says, what exactly matters about gender?

        to whit--I may get tacit support for wondering why Plutonium Page wasn't on the list, but I don't get explicit support from males about her inclusion, even though, I can tell she is appreciated by many.

        •  Page is one of my faves around here (4.00)
          and I'm not normally one to elevate. Although I denegrate freely. Everyone sucks but her.

          Sorry, that should read, "Everyone sucks butter."

          •  Totally agree on this (4.00)
            Page is one of a kind -- the best kind.  But something tells me she's still gonna be posting her midnight diaries that I don't see until the morning here on the East Coast.  But I'm still gonna read 'em.

              •  I'm not into conspiracy theories, but... (none)
                first this, now the "God Is Still Speaking" commercial is banned by CBS and NBC.

                Somebody's got it in for the UCC.

                I think it's PBJDiddy.

            •  You and Page (none)
              were the two names I thought might be on the list that I was disappointed not to see -- not to take anything away from those who were chosen, of course.  Keep up the good works, Pastor Dan.

            •  Pastor Dan... (none)
              I'm sorry to tell you this, but I'M the reason you weren't selected. Kos called me and asked my opinion, and I recommended you...had I realized that it was OPPOSITE DAY I would have said, "anyone BUT Pastor Dan..." My bad.

                •  Let's start our own blog! (none)
                  With your evil genius, and my good looks...no, wait...MY evil genius and your...no...my evil, your looks...wait, wait....I got it!

                  With my heretical blatherings and your mind-numbing normalcy, we could bore 20 -30 people a month! (provided of course you know that many people, I'm not shall we say socially integrated...Sanctuary!! Sanctuary!!)

                  We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.

        •  Yes, I got that from your questions (none)
          that you were disappointed about there not being a female voice.  But, that's why I asked about AGG, a gilas girl, isn't she female?  

          If so, that's one female more than last time.

          I think the answer to the question about Plutonium Page is the pre-scoop criteria.  I can understand placing a premium on 'long standing', though I love Plutonium Page, too.

        •  aoeu (none)
          Maybe she can be a midseason addition to the lineup?  She is going to be moving overseas in the near future right?

      •  He's made me feel very welcome, too (none)
        Seriously, I LOVE Armando...think it's a great handle for him as well, as I used to work for an Armando who wasn't as intelligent but who was definitely an alpha-male type.

        Also congrats to the rest of the folks - I think we're in great hands!

      •  he was one of the (none)
        biggest Clarkies during the epic titanic Clark/Dean battles (and for all those who missed them--you didn't miss anything). But then he revealed that Dean was actually his second choice and then we all got along much better after that.

        Or maybe it's just that we've all been here together for so darned long...

        I actually don't recognize a couple of names on the list...maybe they do a lot of posting on weekends?

        But thank you kos for offering a spot to a gilas girl, and thank you a gilas girl for accepting. Solidarity--not lock step...

        Abortions go up under Republicans. Business is better under Democrats. Pass it on.
