I was very happy to cast a vote for Towleroad. I was weirded out though by seeing Tammy Bruce in the LGBT blog voting. I knew Tammy from her NOW days and see her on talk shows. If Charles Manson and Anita Bryant had ever hooked up, Tammy would be their love child

For those who inquired, the model is Evan Wade (or Wadle, depending on your source).
I already voted for ya, Andy, but I gave you another vote for using gorgeous Evan as bait.
Not going to fall for a copycat. I voted for Joe.My.God. I read your blog as avidly as I do his. But, here's the rub. You have way too much of the young and pretty. Not saying there's anything wrong with young and pretty. Just...oh come on! Where are the bears? Where are the not so pretty. You run a good blog and you deserve the nomination. But you hardly reflect the regular gay, do you.

"(t)he regular gay"? Robert, if you could point to one example of that, I'd be interested in seeing him for myself. If he exists, I haven't met him yet.
And bears are "not so pretty"? Geez, with friends like you, bears don't need enemies!
Joe's blog reflects him and Andy's blog reflects him. Joe's blog is a little basic in appearance and use and Andy's is a little slick. Joe's content comes from an older perspective and Andy's from a younger.
It's all apples and oranges (what does either Joe's or Andy's blogs have in common with the wretched Gay Patriot blog, for instance?), and it doesn't mean that one is necessarily better than the other.
And, I'm sorry, but it's funny that Andy would steal Joe's own dirty trick right out from under him.
