When asked the following question, you responded;
Do you want to see these people run for the Mayor of Calgary?

Gary Bobrovitz
Yes 26%
No 52%
Don’t Care 18%
Don’t Know This Person 4%

Darryl Raymaker
Yes 35%

Don’t Care 12%
Don’t Know This Person 9%

Dave Taylor
Yes 52%
No 37%
Don’t Care 0%
Don’t Know This Person 11%

Small sample size, but getting larger.
The margin of error for this size sample is directly proportional to
the percentage of people who believe Elvis is still alive (He is, isn't he?).


  1. Are these guys actually making it official? Dave Taylor isn't resigning his seat, is he? I hope not! He's part of what little pulse we have left in the ALP.

    You're just playing around because you're bored, right?

  2. Valerie,

    Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean there isn't somebody out to get you.

    Well, I voted "No" to Dave for Mayor because I think he should stay where he is w/the ALP and "Yes" for Darryl because I like his blog. How's that for strategic voting?

    Does that ruin your chances for a free drink? I'll make it up.

    This reminds me of the noon-hour horse racing at the St. Louie back in Ralphie's dayz.

  4. valerie2008,

    As Jane Auer said, "Voting is one of the few things where boycotting in protest clearly makes the problem worse rather than better."

    I'll drink to that.

  5. I think you should put Captain CLUCK up on your sidebar and see how he does against Big Red. He's the only one to commit so far.

    As to strategic voting, I did that when I voted for Preston to usurp Bobby Sparrow. What happened? It opened the door for (yikes) Stephen Harper. Careful what you wish for.

  6. I think will save Captain Cluck for a few days.
