The Top 10 Rightblogger Stories of 2008

According to the Village Voice. Please to refer to No. 9.

#9: The Cheapskate's Guide to Civil Disobedience. In the late days of the campaign emails circulated about a guy who pissed off an Obama-supporting waiter by giving his tip to a bum instead. Haw haw! Rightblogger Dr. Helen discussed undertipping waiters, maids, gardeners, etc. if Obama won as a way for rich people to express their displeasure. "If we had deployed this strategy six months ago the election would not even be close," said Ghost of a Flea. Actually this one panned out: the election wasn't close. Maybe voters figured Republicans don't tip anyway.

The election wasn't close, no. Let us hope the average Village Voice reader made the right call. The rest of us are going to be paying for it for some time to come.

"...if Obama won as a way for rich people to express their displeasure..."

Ah yes, because only rich people leave tips and desire to keep what they earn.

Congrats on the mention!

Thanks. It is satisfying to be ridiculed in such good company. :-)
