Vote for the Speaker

A little diversion from the Stakeholder:

Roll Call is having a little contest, "Speakerology," to see who can garner the most votes from citizens for Speaker of the House. The final round is between Republican Roy Blunt and Democrat Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, and Blunt's hometown paper has already given him a hand. This contest is less than deadly serious, but it would be nice to blow the GOP out. Take a look at Schakowsky's site if you want before you vote, she's awesome.

Here's how it works:

1) In this Championship game, Jan is running against Republican Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO)

2) You need to e-mail your vote to: afterthoughts@rollcall.com All you need to do is write "Future Speaker" in the Subject line, and then write "I vote for Jan Schakowsky for Speaker" as your message.

3) SEND YOUR E-MAIL ASAP. Do it by 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 6.

Bloggers give us a hand if you can spare the space, we should be able take this one easy- we'll be glad to give everybody a shout-out when the results come in.

As noted, this is not exactly a meaningful exercise, but if you're feeling adrift now that the NCAA men's tournament is over, this may help distract you for a few minutes. So take a second and drop a line.
