Yes, there’s a run-off election tomorrow, but this post isn’t about that. This post is about all the awesome people who exercised their right to vote … for someone not officially on the ballot. The people who truly embody the Vote or Die spirit. Without further adieu, here are the top ten best Cobb County write-ins for Congressional District Six which featured Representative Tom Price versus .. *crickets*

10. Lizard People (Wait, I thought Tom Price was a lizard person?)
9. Space Ghost
8. Turd Sandwich (Guess that makes Tom Price the Giant Douche?)
7. Fuck Tom Price
6. Mayor McCheese
5. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayip Erdogan
4. Poker Players Alliance
3. Anyone Else, He’s Embarrassing
2. John McDonald, The Rent Is Too Damn High
1. Juliana Illari (3 Votes!)

Honorable Mention goes to Sean J. Greenberg, who amassed maybe twenty or thirty votes; however, his voter outreach gets a thumbs down as his voters mistyped his name about six different ways.

    At 4:00PM I was the 7th person to vote at my precinct. Does anyone know if Nathan Deal has released his birth certificate yet?

    Is it just me, but how do folks spell Juliana Illari correctly but not Greenberg. LOL.

    Poor Jeff Anderson, he should have done slightly better than that.

    2.) Art Linkletter

    3.) Buddy Darden (2)

    4.) One each for Thomas Jefferson, FDR, Harry Truman, Jimmy Carter & Barack Obama.

    9.) One each for Max Cleland, Mike Thurmond, ‘Petey’ & Santa Claus

    10.) 1 doz. (12) for Mickey Mouse. 20 for some version of ‘none of the above’. All beating unofficial write in candidate Jeff Anderson ~11.

    Honestly, electing Space Ghost doesn’t really seem like a bad idea.

    I sifted though all of ours too. Mickey Mouse was surprisingly popular, after all these years. Ditto for Donald Duck. Several family members showed up as well as ‘Anybody but…’ too. Very popular. Congrats to Juliana & as well to Melissa Pike, the new Cobb Chair. As they say, the fun’s only starting. JMP

      Thanks JM. I’m gonna need all the help I can get.

        Glad to do it Melissa & always willing to do whatever I can. I was trying to recall the complete line of folks I’ve worked with in Cobb. I think I started with Guy Drexinger & worked up the line of succession. But with lots of other fine folks too. Good Luck as always! JMP
