Mayoral Madness: Josiah Failing Regional, Round 2


Scroll down to vote. We have a few things to say first.

When we started Mayoral Madness last week, we had high hopes. But the race between Jack Bogdanski and Packy the Elephant has exceeded our wildest dreams.

Sure, it was pretty great when Bogdanski went negative early on his blog. ("'Packy' was also the nickname for Bob Packwood," he wrote Wednesday, "who used to serve women box wine and tongue-kiss them even if they weren't into it. How can you vote for someone like that?")

And it was even better when Packy formed the first Super PAC of the tournament. It might just be a Twitter feed called Packy SuperPAC, and it may not technically have any money, but do not underestimate the influence of this thing: It's even pushed Felicia Heaton to align herself with a potential future opponent.

But the contest really kicked into high gear yesterday when Bogdanski accused Packy of illegally campaigning with public money—in the guise of a 50th birthday party, no less.

This is delightful. Bojack and Packy, we salute you. You have both already won. Now one of you has to lose.

To the races:

1. Thomas Lauderdale, Bandleader extraordinaire
9. Courtenay Hameister, Live Wire! producer and host

Two born performers with real stage presence, they'll have to take their appeal from the box office to the ballot box.

12. Terrell Brandon, Timberwolf/barber
13. Jody Stahancyk, Fearsome divorce lawyer

Brandon gives haircuts. Shahancyk gives haircuts. They will not reach a settlement.

11. Packy the Elephant, Painter
3. Jack Bogdanski, Breaking-news blogger

Need we say more?

7. Jenny Conlee-Drizos, Decemberist
15. Felicia Heaton, @ShitMyScnrSays

This is the story of your red right ankle / and that time you were busted for DUII and we heard all about on the police band. La la la la la.

Remember, the full bracket is here. Polls close Monday at 8 pm PST.
