Most of you have probably seen this already but we're at the end of the "campaign" and the strongest effort is needed now:
This is the time of year for the annual Wizbang Blog Awards (think the Oscars for blogs). This year, Spunky (a.k.a. Mrs. Braun, a homeschooling mom from Michigan) has been nominated in the Best Educational blog category. She is currently trailing her two primary competitors—one a Ivy league news, gossip, and sex blog, and the other, a professor at Penn State—by 200 votes.
This wouldn't be so bad by itself—homeschoolers can accept defeat graciously—but both of these blogs, besides being exceedingly secular, are also exceedingly elitist. They seem to have a built in disdain for homeschoolers. A sampling of comments from their blogs:
The important thing is that IvyGate and I crush the homeschoolers."
"And seriously, we do need to beat the cr*p out of those homeschool freaks."
For all these reasons, I'd like to encourage all of you to get behind SpunkyHomeschool and help vote her to victory. You are allowed to vote once a day (from every available computer) until the end of December 15th. For more information, click here. You can also visit The Rebelution blog for updates.

Spunky has a tight lead, keep voting to keep her there!!!!
