We were granted this award for coming closest in predicting the midterm election results (out of the SLOBS - San Diego Local Order of Bloggers) and which was created and presented by our friend Leslie of Temple of Mut at the latest SLOB confab a couple of weekends ago.

Thanks, Leslie!

P.S. The imagery of Don Draper from "Mad Men" perhaps needs an explanation. In the run-up to the midterms, the House minority leader John Boehner, became the target of attacks from the Democrats, obviously, but also an anonymous Republican who called Boehner "a lazy bar hopper". Lumping this together with the fact that Boehner smokes and (in another pre-midterm smear) is an alleged womanizer to go along with his rakish good-looks, it hit us like a bolt of lightning - this idea that Leslie was working on at the very same time...

We implored America to embrace its dark side and indeed it did. And we were just grateful to play a small part in fabricating a new American folk hero and role model for aspiring pols everywhere.

BwD: You were missed. I hope you had a good time. While I couldn't give myself an award (that would be too Obama-ish), everyone agreed I would have nabbed the "Peggy Olsen" award for perkiness and advertising savvy. I, however, think I earned the Betty Draper prize for diabolical thinking in stylish attire. :)

Check out my post today. I have a cute graphic and details on the SB 510 vote.

PS. Did you like the Star Wars Beer Mug. :)

I did indeed, Leslie. Thanks!

I would've given you the Peggy Olsen award, also.
