Please tolerate a little shameless self-promotion: I’m competing in the 2009 Weblog Awards in the “Best Video Blog” category, and I’d love to have your vote.

Why is my video blog the best? Well, most recently, I’ve provided an airtight argument for why ethnic Vietnamese food was the key to Bob McDonnell’s gubernatorial success. I’ve made a harrowing escape from the throes of a tea party grim reaper, chronicled the destruction of my donkey pinata while traversing August town hall meetings, and barely survived the 2009 gay pride parade (a project for which I did not receive hazard work pay, as many readers have suggested).

Show me some love. Click this link, and scroll down towards the bottom of the page to find "The Washington Beat" entry. Then click the plus sign next to that entry. Many thanks!
