Just a reminder that today is Super Wednesday (Super Tuesday was
already taken) and today is your very last chance to get your votes in on
who will be the Hosta Party candidate in this fall's upcoming Presidential
Election. Hey, if the Communist Party is still fielding candidates, it's
about time we put one of our own up there.
For those who haven't been watching the elections at
http://www.hostalibrary.org/firstlook/, I'll give a quick recap of the
action to date. Chris Wilson, popular Commander-in-Chief of the Hallson
Gardens Forums, dashed to an early lead but was slowly overtaken by most of
the other candidates. Though he led through much of the campaign so far, the
lead has at times been held by Lu Nelson, Bob Solberg, and Carol Brashear.
After a slow start, Chick Wasitis has rallied a little and has begun gaining
momentum, though he still trails the others by a wide margin. In a
surprising move that began last night, Carol Brashear has surged forward and
now commands a strong lead going into the final hours of voting. Nelson,
Solberg, and Wilson remain more or less in a three-way race as they try to
rally support to catch back up and Wasitis still trails but is showing some
signs of having legs. Little, slow moving legs, but he is attracting at
least a few votes.
Remember if you haven't yet voted, there are some qualifications you
must meet to have your vote counted. First you must be a citizen of the
United States, as this election is for US office. Second, you must be a
living human being, with only one identity, even if you are a citizen of
Chicago. Third you must own at least one hosta, or have plans to do so in
coming years. Fourth, you must not have any past or current affiliation with
any other (companion) plant-oriented political party, such as the Iris or
Daylily Parties. Fifth, you must agree not to have marigolds planted within
five feet of blue hostas in your garden.
Be sure to stay tuned as this exciting race draws to a close at
9:00PM EST tonight.
No tax dollars were spent to make this announcement.
