Democracy in America ... P. Willie challenge back on

There's an old adage about democracy and sausage -- both are great, but you don't want to see either being made. That was the case earlier today when some malfeasance shut down our P. Willie Nickname Challenge. I blame Maiocco, but our tech guys say someone was trying to rig the vote for one of the other surveys in our forums section. Anyway, the election is back on (for now) and you can click here to vote. We'll leave the challenge going for a few days and hopefully get a nice showing by the electorate.
