Homecoming "queen" update 

Regarding our post on the male homecoming queen, Powerline adds a note from their correspondent in St. Cloud (they could correspond with me, couldn't they?)
By now, you've heard about the guy elected homecoming queen at St. Cloud State. My best friend's wife was quoted in the St. Cloud Times' Friday edition. This morning, the New York Times called and talked with her. The uproar over this event is huge and one can sense the uproar over this is changing votes daily. The bottom line to all this is that, based on this information, there isn't a snowball's prayer in hell that Kerry wins Minnesota.
The correspondent reports 20,000 Bush/Cheney signs have gone out of the Waite Park office, busting the record, and that they need more volunteers.

I have no idea if this will be true -- it strikes me as far-fetched that this thing is that big that it changes votes appreciably -- but there's little doubt that it's created an uproar.

And to heck with the New York Times. We made Fark!
