    I luuuurve me some Mark Steyn. But Pamela does put her neck out there. So I vote for Pamela.

    Sorry, Pamela. Steyn is swoon-worthy. :-)

    Except, of course, when BFH posts a less-than-glamorous picture of Mr. Steyn…

    LadyGun, you don’t think Fur is engaged in a bit of “perception swaying” do ya? I’m sure it’s not an intentional attempt to affect the outcome of the race… Although if he was, he might’ve posted a little sum’n sum’n to nudge the fellas a little farther Pam’s way (IYKWIM). ;)

    This IS the toughest one for me because I do know (or at least I think I know. Realistically, I probably have no clue) just how crucial Pamela’s work is and how she selflessly sacrifices her safety and her very self for the sake of what is Right and True and Good! But Mark is by far my favorite media personality. I’d rather listen to Steyn pontificate on the radio than to watch Megyn Kelley editorialize in the nude! Between his wit and that accent, it just entertains the shit out of me. I gotta think on this one a while!

    What do I know about what makes a woman swoon??

    All I know is Racist rather listen to Mark Steyn than watch Megyn Kelly, even if she were nude.

    Who’s your PollDaddy??

    Absolutely love them both. This was a tough one so I boiled it down to website navigation ease.

    Yeah, I’m a simpleton at times, but I didn’t know how else to vote.

    Love you Pamela.

    Under normal circumstances I’d go Pamela, but she handled that whole Tommy Robinson/EDL thing badly last week by not noticing Quilliam right away, and seeming to throw the EDL under the bus when they did nothing to deserve it, so I went Mark. Also Mark is taking out the Hockey stick Mann (Michael) in court soon, so he gets added points.

    Not fair! Not fair! I’m going to flip a coin. Heads Pamela wins, tails Mark loses.

    Oh shit, it landed on its edge. Now what?

    LadyGun, I think Mark Steyn is swoon-worthy no matter what. :) I also love his writing, so I have to go with Steyn.

    Most women are suckers for a foreign accent. But I think Stein is a genius, so he gets my vote, too. (Not to diminish Geller, at all.)

    Like I said before, you people are nuts. Steyn is a great wordsmith. Pamela is something way beyond that.

    In a war of words, sure. But eloquence doesn’t win real wars. All respect for Steyn, I’d rather be in the trenches with Pamela Geller. And I am, in fact.

    Steyn tells us what we want to hear.

    Pamela tells us what we need to hear.

    No contest.

    Should be Pamela, hands down.
    Thought this crowd understood. :(

    jclady:

    Exactly. You nailed it.

    Get all your friends on here to vote for Pamela. She should not be trailing in this vote. If, that is, there is any justice. But seeing as how y’all didn’t vote Jihad Watch into the top 20, I won’t expect much. Still, here is a chance for you to redeem yourselves!

    I love reading Steyn, and wish I could craft articles like he does. And his insight is astounding and invaluable.

    But without Pamela’s work–and yours, too, Mr. Spencer–a lot more Americans might be praying to allah five times a day

    Not me though. I’d have been eliminated as an “infidel” who will never renounce Christ.

    Should go for the fellow Canadian now living in New Hampshire, but have to love Pamela for her acknowledging Ayn Rand, even though Pamela is somewhat religious.

    I knew you could not make it and voted for Pam in your place. I also voted for Pam for other people who could not make it today. No good the dear sweet thing still lost.
    But…. At least she still looks “39″.
    How does she do it?
