One of the more interesting sites from this past election

What the Helen is down. While I could say defeat got them down, maybe not, they've served their purpose this time. It would have been nice if there was an archive but there won't be now.

Another Uptown blog had this to say about What the Helen...

46th Ward Alderman: Helen Shiller by a mere 53%, with challenger James Cappleman capturing 47% of the vote. The What the Helen folks (the site seems to be down, now) should be happy for at least creating a race in their ward. We wonder if Alderman Shiller will take the hint that she has some very unhappy residents in her ward and reach out to those folks who voted for James Cappleman, or if she’ll see her slim margin of 53% as a “mandate” to keep things the way they are.
Perhaps that was their only purpose they served it. Maybe Shiller will watch herself, perhaps she won't. But the coverage of that election up there was certainly very entertaining. Hopefully next year there could be as much entertainment or in 2010 0r 2011.

To WhatTheHelen and IrishPirate I royally salute you!!! See you guys around or perhaps not.

And check out the links to the What the Helen blog on Technorati.
