Our Pounding at Weblog Awards Nearly Complete!

For those of us cherishing hopes of a Hollywood-esque (or perhaps, NE Pats 2001-esque) ending for Wetmachine and our quest for the 2008 best Weblog award -- forget it. We have settled rather firmly in 7th place.

So I'm here to beg for one last time for you to vote for us!. You can vote until 5 p.m. EST.

Help us stay respectable!

I called it!

In the fine tradition of Stephen Colbert predicting his own defeat at the hands of Barry Manilow (MANILOOOOOWWWWW!!!!!!), Tony Bennett (BENNETTTT!!!!), and Don Rickles (RICKLESSSSSSS!!!!), I successfully predicted my own butt-stomping at the hands of Ars Technica!

W00T. Go me.

Release the balloons.

Actually, we came in a respectable 6th, getting merely beaten rather than destroyed by TechCrunch. Still, given that Ars Technica does both real reporting and policy analysis, it comes as no surprise that they whomped us good.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to wrap myself in my tattered shreds of dignity, go home, and sob hysterically until I melt into a sad little puddle of self-pity until restored by my snuggly kittehs.
