#9 “Having recently abandoned his plans to privatize liquor sales, Gov. Bob McDonnell mounts another slippery slope”
Our judge, Senior Editor Dwayne Yancey, writes:
This one was really hard. I didn’t much care for #6 because I thought it was a cheap shot against Liberty’s academics. All the others I really liked, many because they went in other directions and brought in other characters — Palin, Cuccinelli, etc. I also love misdirection in humor.
I ultimately went with #9 because it was the shortest — “brevity is the soul of wit,” Shakespeare said — and I loved the reference to ‘slippery slope.”
I’m not sure it’s accurate that McDonnell has “abandoned” his plan, but figure it’s set in the future.
But I wish I could give a prize to the others; they were all hoots.
Congrat, Mike! Please help yourself to a volume from Dan’s Bookshelf, let me know which one you want, and send me you name and address and I’ll get it in the mail.
Also, I haven’t until now gotten around to announcing the winner of our Boys of Mowvember contest. The winner is:

We’ll take a short break from the contests, folks, because after today I’ll be on vacation until the New Year. I’ll be lurking a bit on the blog and will set up threads, but many fewer than usual, at least until January.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone!
