Super Wednesday

Hi Everyone,
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.
