Take the Poll: FDL YearlyKos Breakfast

Okay, I’m working with the YearlyKos people to set up an FDL breakfast.  I didn’t exactly inherit the "event planner" gene so many gay folks seem to have, but my business consultant side tells me to get some data before I make a fool of myself.  Therefore, I need you to take a 3 1 minute survey to help me know how best to serve you.

The FDL breakfast is meant as a celebration of this blog community, which means it’s all about you. It’s also a chance for dear virtual friends to become closer in person.

In that spirit, I’ve put together my own Top Ten Reasons FDL Rocks:

10.  Joe Wilson lurks here (Hey, Joe!  Ignore the wankers:  you look hot in that Vanity Fair photoshoot.) 

 9.  Troll Trexing.

 8.  We’re getting too big for our britches! 

 7.  Dammit, I got EPU’d! 

 6.  All the right people hate us.

 5.  Intelligent, compassionate discussions on complex, controversial topics, all day, every day.

 4.  We don’t just write:  we organize and fight.

 3.  Koufax, anyone

 2.  This is no place for Snarkaholics Anonymous.  

 1.  You.  Just you.  [Insert your name here.]

The survey will close at 5:00 PM EST tomorrow, April 6.  I want it up long enough to get a reasonable sample of our community, but not so long it gets spam stuffed.  You can only complete it once.

So, what do you like about this place?

Pachacutec did not, as is commonly believed, die in 1471. To escape the tragic sight of his successors screwing up the Inca Empire he’d built, he fled east into the Amazon rain forest, where he began chewing lots of funky roots to get higher than Hunter Thompson ever dared. Oddly, these roots gave him not only a killer buzz, but also prolonged his life beyond what any other mortal has known, excluding Novakula. Whatever his doubts of the utility of living long enough to see old friends pop up in museums as mummies, or witness the bizarrely compelling spectacle of Katherine Harris, he’s learned a thing or two along the way. For one thing, he’s learned the importance of not letting morons run a country, having watched the Inca Empire suffer many civil wars requiring the eventual ruler to gain support from the priests and the national military. He now works during fleeting sober moments to build a vibrant progressive movement sufficiently strong and sustainable to drive a pointed stake through the heart of American “conservatism” forever. He enjoys a gay marriage, classic jazz and roots for the New York Mets.
