DoN Encourages YOU to Practice Democracy NOW!

Here in the United States of America, paragon of modern democratic government to budding nations, place where "We" are all Time magazine's Person of the Year, it is only fitting that I get your input regarding a matter of critical significance to The Dept.

Many of you have come to enjoy and, if I dare believe you, even look forward to my nightly Brian Williams Tie Report. (I get a kick out of it myself although it is annoying that there aren't any good synonyms for the word "tie" unless I dip into foreign languages. I'm highly impressed that Brian hasn't repeated a tie yet since I've started reporting on his neckwear. Rick is frustrated that there isn't a screen capture online of each NBC newscast, and he is starting to get really worky on me, trying to figure out a way to get a picture of each tie and yadda yadda yadda da da da. )

But I digress.

This is where you come in. Below, you will find a poll in which I'd like my Dept. of Nance readers to vote. Yes, vote! Even though, ultimately, I will be the decider, I would like the input of all of you. I will look at the results, and, much like those of the Iraq Study Group, then I will consider it carefully, mulling and chewing it over, and then, like someone else we know, do whatever the hell I wanted to in the first place. No, I'm just kidding. I will seriously see what my readership desires most and by what margin. Then I'll take it from there. So, vote for which choice you like best. In the meantime, I'll have the Tie Report up in the sidebar each night I watch Brian, as usual. Have you had a favorite tie, yet? Or a favorite report? That Brian...what a figure he cuts.

Okay, now vote!

What should be done with The Brian Williams Tie Report?
Leave it as a sidebar feature here at The Dept.
Make it a whole new blog and link to it from The Dept.
Make it a daily Dept. blogpost so we can comment on it
Honestly, I'm not here for The Tie Report free polls

    New reader here. I'm a Blue voter in a Red state. And Brian Williams? So much more intelligent than Bill O'Reilly.

  2. wordgirl--let me welcome you enthusiastically to The Dept.! as a long-suffering Blue in a muddled, Only-Recently Blue state, I feel your pain. And with regard to Brian, I have only recently begun to begrudgingly embrace him. I still harbor secret, gnawing fears that he may be a republican, but his no-holds-barred reporting and dismay during the Katrina crisis made me respect him. I hope you stick around and comment often here.

    Tie one on, Nance! I rely on you to keep me informed. (I voted for sidebar status, by the way. Might be too much to commit yourself to an entire blog on his ties: he could turn out to be Republican!)

    I have no clue who Brian Williams is.

  5. o'tizz--i am all about simplifying, dear heart. the thought of another whole blog overwhelms me. but, i was willing to give it a go if my readers really wanted it. but i just checked my votes, and apparently either i have only a dozen readers or the idea of voting overwhelms my readers (LOL), so it looks like the tie report is staying as is. did you catch him on friday, btw? i was out to dinner and missed the news.

    V--you've been out of the US so long that you've missed the NBC News torch being passed from Tom Brokaw to The New Guy, Brian Williams, whose sartorial array I've become mildly obsessed with.
    I'm assuming you have The Google in Belgium? See what you can accomplish with that. hee hee.


Oh, thank you for joining the fray!
