New Feature at Big Lizards!

Hatched by Dafydd

I have decided to inaugurate a new feature at Big Lizards: the Dhimmi of the Month award.

Each month, starting this one (even though it's half over), I'll be nominating some well-known blabbermouths as Dhimmi of the Month. Then, at the beginning of the next month -- assuming I can figure out how to do this -- I'll do a "poll" post, where you all can vote on which nominee wins the coveted "Four Feathers" trophy and plaque. (The plaque will remain metaphorical until I can find some really cheap plaque-making place to produce one.)

The plaque -- real or imaginery -- will remain at Big Lizards central; but if I ever get around actually to having one made, I'll take a picture and post it here, so you can see what it looks like. Each month, the winner's name will be "etched" onto the plaque below the other winners (by "etched," I of course mean "hand-scribbled with a paint pen").

Readers are invited to suggest nominees; you must include a link to a respected Antique Media article (not just somebody's unsourced blogpost) describing the incident for which you believe he or she deserves being immortalized. If I accept your nomination (totally up to me), I will of course hat tip all those who suggested that person.

This could be fun... I've never tried to make a poll post before! But it's just XHTML -- how hard could it be? (Uh oh, my hubris may have just angered Blogetheus, the Titan of the blogosphere!)

The next post will have our first Dhimmi of the Month nominee, the man who in fact inspired me to this reckless promise....

Can we make nomminations from the floor?

Anticipating your enthusiatic approval, I nominate the President of Yale! Richard Charles Levin has possibly outdone every useful idiot in the free world (haven't had to use that term in years!) with the admission of Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi to Yale as a "guest student", whatever that is.

Does he get a plaque or a little gold statutette if he wins?

Yep, I'm accepting nominations for March.

I must apologize for not yet having posted the poll post; it turns out those are a lot more difficult to set up than I thought!

I'm trying to install a program called Advanced Poll (ver. 2.0.4), and I'm most of the way there; but it will still be some time before it's working.

If it takes much longer, I'll just slop Gore over to March (since he was the only nominee for February, and this will at least set up a competition).

But certainly Levin is a great nomination. I'll try to find a "good" picture of him!
