xkcd: Privacy Opinions

I am very pleased to announce that due to my winning a lottery sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative former President Bill Clinton will post one item on Discourse.net later today, in which he will reveal his endorsements in the upcoming Coral Gables election.
Gables-watchers may recall that Mr. Clinton provided a robo-call endorsement in the 2011 Mayor’s race for Tom Korge. I do not know what prompted his interest in the 2013 race, but the former President is known as an avid follower of political races around the country, and Florida would be an important swing state were Hillary Clinton to run for President in 2016.
Check back often — I will approve President Clinton’s comments as soon as he sends them to me.

The gizoogle version of Jotwell is really quite something. The gizzogle version of Discourse.net has its own virtues.
Is this another sign of Ali G’s comeback?
