Ever since our little buddy and the forum's favourite whipping boy, Echoes, left us, there has been a power vacuum among the intellectually vaccuous. (Yeah, I know, a "vacuum" in a vacuum sounds silly, but that's HCPP for ya.) Echoes brought us a certain amusing form of indomintable, dogmatic and largely unsupportable hysteria to the forum that was as amusing as it was pathetic. Or as pathetic as it was amusing, I could never decide which, since he, himself, flip-flopped from one to the other.
As with any gap in "leadership," the HCPP "conservatives" are wandering, lost and in need of a figurehead. So who will it be? There are a number of contenders:
And of course, everybody's favourite Coleman/Disney fanatic, Hoddy. Plus others I've forgotten about.
Each of the above have at least some of Echoes' traits: Religious fanaticism, pugnaciousness, "conservative" values and general cussedness. But none of them "owns" a fuel tank company. Still, somebody has to be the official "Echoes," so we can all agree on one person above (below?) all to hate, loath, despise and giggle at.
Any and all suggestions accepted. Pick a favourite from the list and say why he or she should be "The New Echoes," or nominate someone else, if you wish.
So who's it gonna be?
(DAMN, I wish this new forum had provisions for a poll!)
