DL Person of The Year: Official Poll

This poll is bogus!

I project a Nate Silver/Poll Troll win.

Queen Ann Romney deserves to be on this list more than Dionne.

R3, on the nominations thread, Dionne was mentioned numerous times and many felt she was #1. Queen Anne was only mentioned in the "Annes" collective along with Hathaway and Shitty Little.

One more for the Queen Ann write-in campaign.
AND the horse she rode in on.

WTF is the Precious Moments Girl? That was a thing in 2012?
About half of the nominees are names/things that cause me to avoid reading threads when I see them associated.
That being said, I'm voting for one that I mostly avoided all year.

C'mon...Patsy Ramsey had some of the best and most inappropriate and disrespectful lines ever. She deserves a spot.

I loved Rafalca, and it's wrong to make me choose between him & Poll Troll, but I confess, I couldn't have remained sane and got thru the past election cycle without Poll Troll. I would check in to DL several times a day looking for my "fix."

The Poll Troll wasn't really Nate Silver, was he?

I'm happy Meryl is in the poll, but it really should be me instead of her - since this is about DL, first and foremost.
I fought the Viola fanbots tooth and nail, I persevered, and, naturally, I won.
My impact on all award threads here on DL has been illimitable and shoreless.
This makes me the DL person of the year!

R14, are you the poster who wanted the "Who is your favorite Joan?" thread? You seem to crave attention and credit like him.
|by Anonymous||reply 15||12/28/2012|
Poll Troll was an insufferable bore, who at some point thought he was a pollster and a pundit and forgot that he was just another guy just posting on DL. He did nothing special or unique to warrant this title. At least Rafalca was interesting and didn't allow all the praise to go to his head.
|by Anonymous||reply 16||12/28/2012|
The Poll Troll was dreadful, just piggybacking off Nate Silver's work (who was piggybacking off other people's work) and acted like he was changing the election. I couldn't be happier to see them fade away after the election.
Hissing Eldergay FTW.

"At least Rafalca was interesting and didn't allow all the praise to go to his head."
Yeah, that's because his severed head is now on someone's bed.
|by Anonymous||reply 18||12/28/2012|
I voted Rafalca. But Queen Ann and Mrs. Patsy Ramsey, formerly of Boulder, Co. should also definitely be on the list. In fact, PR might be the DL icon of all time. Her acid commentary on various news events is the gift that keeps on giving.
|by Anonymous||reply 19||12/28/2012|
I am, r15. Well observed!
And I do, yes. I own my trollish need for attention, fully and completely. I do call myself a 'troll' for a reason, see?
Thanks for remembering my beautiful 'Joan thread' btw. I'm glad I made an impact on your memory.
A belated Meryl Christmas to you !!

Streep Loon, the only thing you'd win is DL Psycho Diahrrea-drinker of the Century.
|by Anonymous||reply 21||12/28/2012|
How about Datalounge's own Josh Kilmer Purcell of the Beekman Boys/Amazing Race?
|by Anonymous||reply 22||12/28/2012|
Well, r21, at least you fed me just now.
That is what every genuine troll wants, as you surely know. Never feed a troll! And yet you couldn't help yourself, and you replied to my trollish post bursting with trollism.
That, in all honesty, is honor enough for me. :)
*Kisses* just for you, r21!

R14, your self-congratulatory, needy writing style gives you away. Oh, and spend the $18 to start your own threads. You'd be good at it. Finally, you can be an OP. That or get a blog and publicize it here on DL.
|by Anonymous||reply 25||12/28/2012|
The list is lovely, I'm sure, but where are the STARS? To those on said list of which I am not a part-- I'm bigger and I'm faster. I will ALWAYS beat you.

I voted for Bomer Butt

Mmmm, Bomer's butt cheeks. Delicious. Voted. For this and many other reasons. :D

I love that the Hissing Eldergay and the Poll Troll are tied for first.
Two opposite ends of the DL spectrum right there.
|by Anonymous||reply 29||12/28/2012|
I would have voted for Sweet Brown too.
|by Anonymous||reply 30||12/28/2012|
Rafalca first choice
Also would have liked Sweet Brown as a choice
|by Anonymous||reply 31||12/28/2012|
Dione Warwick should win, those threads are legendary.
|by Anonymous||reply 32||12/28/2012|
The Poll Troll kept me sane whenever we were invaded by nutcases predicting a Romney victory so Poll Troll for the win.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||12/28/2012|
I agree that we missed putting the Beekman's on the poll and Patsy Ramsey as well. I love the hissing gay. An instant classic.
But the Poll Troll held things together and worked himself to death.
Ciaran, the Poll Troll used mostly Nate's stats so even if he wasn't Nate, in a way, he kind of was.
|by Anonymous||reply 34||12/28/2012|
I think Poll Troll really [italic]was[/italic] Nate Silver.
Dione threads were so masterful that she would win any non-election year...although I think they started before 2012.
I hope Rafalca stays a DL staple like PR, formerly of Boulder.
2012 has been a good year for DL.
|by Anonymous||reply 35||12/28/2012|
The Hissing Eldergay is back in the lead.

|by Anonymous||reply 37||12/28/2012|
Hissing Eldergay is number one, that's going to be with us for years and eventually become a DL legend.
The Poll Troll/Nate Silver is number two for me because he was so goddamned useful all year long. We'll need him again so I hope he sticks around.

I'm starting to think the Meryl troll is also that miserable cunt with the blog.
|by Anonymous||reply 42||12/30/2012|
The Meryl troll is whoever wants to be the Meryl troll but he's been around forever. I'm not sure how long the School Marm has been here, but I'd guess Meryl existed before he came along.

I think we should have a run off.

There is a glaring omission, here, that invalidates this poll.
Lisa Whelchel is clearly a top-3 contender for DL Person of the Year, and her absence from the nomination list is skewing the results.

No option for Jaclyn Smith and her shelter cat, Bootsie Gumdrop?

Clearly the Streep troll is Prisspot asshat, the posts reveal the same affectations and neediness. Fucking loser.

I just voted for Hissing Eldergay (The).
But it has to be Hissing Eldergay (The). Not The Hissing Eldergay.

I think Sweet Brown would be top 5 in the poll...I'd vote for her.

Ah ha! The Streep Troll posted in the Oscar Reactions thread that he is in Switzerland. Didn't the prisspot cunt say she was moving there?

I nominate Pollyanna Prisspot/Streep troll as the worst of DL. Not since Thoughtless Critic has there been such a needy fucktard.

Thanks, R11! : )
I'm glad people here enjoyed my polling threads.
As you can tell from other posts here, I have a few detractors, though. ; )
I guess no one is universally liked - we all have our preferences. I shall note both the compliments & the criticism for future reference in case I do it again for the next election. . .
