An Endorsement, Sort Of, From Tradercaddy

In my role as “egregious moderator” I’ve been lucky enough to hear from a couple of the “regulars” around here. I mean, it’s the Internet, but even so, if you read this site daily, you almost get to know how people are going to weigh in on stuff. I was interested in knowing a little about some of these commenters, and how they planned to vote this evening.

So here is the first of two such interviews… the other, featuring the beloved Jake Gint, will be up a bit later.

DT: Tradercaddy, you’re one of the older visitors to iBC, and while that doesn’t necessarily make you wiser, it probably makes you a little richer, and hence, more important. I, for one, despise poor people. Anyway, how long have you been frequenting “The Fly’s” blog?

TC: For about 20 months.

DT: Other than “The Fly” which tab do you visit most often? Remember, my blog doesn’t apply for this answer because technically, I’m not a member of the gay iBC team…

TC: Adam and then Woodshedder… it was the other way around up to about 3 weeks ago.

DT: Really? Wow… do you want to say some bad shit about Woodshedder then?

TC: No.

DT: Fair enough… but just so you know, Woodshedder thinks you’re a “dick.” True story. Anyway, is your wife hot?

TC: Of course. She’s looking over my shoulder now.

DT: Seriously?

TC: Of course…

DT: Okay, before I get into trouble with that line of questioning, other than yourself, who is your favorite commenter?

TC: Calvino, then Jake.

DT: What are some other stock market blogs that you visit regularly?

TC: 24-Wall Street, Carlfutia, Notable Calls, Ducati (sorry Fly), One Bad Trade, and your illustrious third-tier blog.

DT: Nice selection. OBAT is a member of the VO, so naturally, I have a soft spot for that blog as well… anyway, do you trade for a living?

TC:  Yes.

DT:  What are you looking for in a tabbed blogger?  Humor?  Stock market ideas?  Porn?

TC:  I’m looking for both… I’m looking for humor from “The Fly” and the comments.

DT:  And the porn?

TC:  My wife is still here DT… let’s move on.

DT:  Okay, well… in a related question, is Hillary Clinton a “smelly pirate hooker?”

TC:  She’s just another politician willing to say anything to get elected- only JFK and Ronald Reagan have been worth a crap in my lifetime.

DT: Damn, you are old…

TC: Word.

DT:  Okay, so who are you endorsing to replace Gunner’s tab?  And why do all the other candidates suck?

TC:  It’s a three way tossup right now (honest)-GW,Alpha, Dpeezy (because I always wanted to vote for a gangsta from the hood for something).

DT:  Wow, so no real endorsement there… perhaps we’ll find it later this evening in the comment section then.  Maybe after “The Fly” drops his official endorsement at 10:30.

At this point, our “interview” was abruptly ended as Tradercaddy’s wife forced him to stop talking to “that weird reptile man over the Internet.” Alas…

ELECTION NIGHT NOTICE:  Up next, Jeremy’s endorsement…

    Great interview.

    TC is a true gentleman, unlike the presently imprisoned BOOMER.

    I’m crushed TC.

    Was it the pics of my wife’s boobs in a Viz shirt that pushed you over the edge?

    Great interview, this is the kind of stuff I’ve been waiting all day for. I can hardly wait to read Jake’s.

    All my favored candidates are doing well today, it’s an exciting election, better than the presidential primary results. GW has been in his self-imposed cone of silence, taking the high road, AW and DPeezy are stirring up the crowds and handing out kisses to babies.

    BTW I’m pleasantly surprised how many people voted so far, a true compliment to iBC.

    I just swallowed my gum (from laughing). DT is the Barbara Walters of the interviewers of the blogging world.

    Dpeezy and GW coming on strong, threatening Alpha for second.

    I hate to say it, but if one of my favorite 3 candidates cuts a deal with one or both of the other candidates (perhaps permanent guest blogger status on the tab) then the other two candidates could easily beat out BEAS. Go huddle in a smoke-filled room somewhere and see if it works.

    The horror, I’ve just suggested throwing the election. I’m ashamed of myself, believe me.

    Boca- Don’t be ashamed of such thoughts as Palm Beach County is well known for election shenanigans.

    that’s it, TC, I’ll blame it on the evil influence of my neighbors.

    A split tab between Alpha and DP?

    That would be great but in a communist kind of way.

    Perhaps we could call it a ‘coalition of the willing’.
