Named Night Online News Editor for The Augusta Chronicle in February 2010. Responsible for laying out story priority and positioning on the site Wednesday-Sunday nights. So if you like what you see, thank me, and if you don't like what you see, let me know. Started working as an online producer at The Augusta Chronicle in August of 2006. Favorite news memories include meeting James Brown at the 2006 Toy Giveaway days before he died, live blogging the 2009 Masters tournament from the media center at Augusta National and anytime someone in power got in trouble because we caught them doing something they weren't supposed to be doing.

Best of 2010

You've seen the best videos of 2010. So why would I post this? To highlight my favorite*. Ohh, and you might want to look away and/or not watch the video if you're offended by the word D&mn.

 

Jimmy McMillan, candidate for New York governor during the 2010 elections, became famous for his campaign speeches during the debates. Representing his own party, "The Rent is Too Damn High Party," various editions of McMillan's rants have attracted millions of views. They're just funny. But they're so true.

 

His campaign successfully attracted more than 40,000 votes. Positions on the issues included:

  • Gay marriage: If you want to marry a shoe, I'll marry you.
  • Environment: Wants to bulldoze all the mountains in upstate New York.

 

Anyways, if you have a thing for extreme lambchop sideburns and need a good laugh, take a look at the man who has already come out to announce his 2012 run for the presidency. On the Republican ticket so he does not have to win a primary against incumbent Barack Obama.

 

*At least, my favorite one that I just saw again from 2010.
