Okay, I still owe someone $50. I ran a contest back in 2004, called "Guess the Hanging Chad" where I challenged folks to guess which excuse the Dems would use to explain Kerry's humiliating defeat at the polls. I asked for guesses, then said that the first one who found a Dem using their guess after the election, would win $50.
Shortly before I headed out on a six month extravaganza of deployment fun, one of you readers sent in their winning guess with matching quote from a Dem. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to check it out, or get a check out, so please, if you are still reading, and are the one who sent in your winning guess, please do so again. Put it in the comments below, as I will once again be incommunicado for about a month as I deploy to Baghdad, and my email will surely be full to bursting. It will be easier for me to check the comments here, and then return an email for an address to send the money to.
Anbd thanks for your patience, whoever you are.
