Running for Office:

It's Like A Flamewar with a Forum Troll, but with an Eventual Winner

Okay, this is pretty cool. A geek-dude named Sean Tevis thinks his current Kansas Representative is a moronic dinosaur because he's anti-abortion, pro-censorship, anti-gay marriage, and thinks "intelligent" design should be taught in schools as actual science. So Sean decided to run against him. His web page is an XKCD-style comic -- check it out:

I'm downmodding him.

[More of the comic on his web page. Yes, I'm hotlinking, but since I'm trying to help him raise campaign funds, his bandwidth can deal with it. :) ]

So he's trying to get 3000 people to donate $8.34 each to his campaign. That'll get him the publicity money he needs, and by getting almost five times as many contributors as any candidate for state rep has ever had before in Kansas, that'll make the news and get him more publicity, for free.

I don't live in Kansas, but I think this guy needs to win. I sent him my $8.34, and I'll be rooting for him. If you're a US citizen, please consider supporting him too.

[EDIT: 11pm, 16 July -- he's up to 1414 donors! Awesome, keep going! :D ]

[EDIT2: 12:30pm, 17 July -- 2326! :D :D ]
