Chris Dodd Rulez LOLZ!

|

Chris Dodd isn't going to win the presidency or anything, but his campaign web team are enjoying their work. Like they did with Sunday's Democratic debate, Dodd's team clocked the time each GOP candidate got on Tuesday. But they put a joke in the code:

I'll blow it up. Check the green text.

Tip from Jerid of BuckeyeStateBlog's New Hampshire project. Here's his great post on Rudy's town hall.

  1. Quit shilling for Big Code.

  2. This is a brilliant idea; I am sure there are scores of people across the country who were going to vote for Giuliani, but when they saw how much time Blitzer gave Rudy, decided to vote for Dodd.

  3. Oh look, someone hid a joke as a comment in the html code. I bet no one was ever that puckish before. And they use that slang writing style the kids use today. Isn’t that oh so clever.

  4. All the cool kids use Firefox too.

  5. I’m glad my code comments don’t get republished on someone’s blog. I’d have the FCC all over my ass for indecency complaints.

    Who was the fucktard who wrote this fucking idiotic line of code? I’m leaving it here as a tribute to fucking idiots everywhere.

  6. MP – LOL

    Mitch, I’m sure Dodd wasn’t going for the Rudy McRomney crowd, but if he’s got a cool tool for political junkies on his site, then he’s going to get more political junkie traffic on his site. More political junkie traffic means more people who might submit tidbits from his site to blogs. More blog coverage, maybe more press coverage. All of it leads to more attention for Chris Dodd, and, as a politician, he likes attention.

  7. They all look like Pez dispensers in the graph.

  8. The classic code comment, way back when the internet was first invented:

    <!– You’re not expected to understand this -AlGore –>

    Oh. I see what you did.

  10. Nothing to say, EH MATTXIV?

  11. Nothing that didn’t get stripped out when the comment was parsed. 🙂

  12. joke as a comment in the html code. I bet no one was ever that puckish before.

    zomg!!111!

    I got into ‘trouble’ on occasion for indirectly poking fun at other programmers in my code comments. At one point, someone working for another company which did code reviews on our code said to me when we first met over the phone “Oh, you’re the one with the sense of humor.”

  13. mp:

    Ok, you win, I never was that direct. I preferred the more subtle approach:

    //Hmm…two lines might have sufficed here, in stead of the 45 badly written and poorly organized nonsense.

  14. Actually, putting stupid things on your website that get the attention of the internets is a pretty smart move. I knew nothing about Chris Dodd before today. Now I know that he’s just another unremarkable New England Democrat, but he’s apparently got a web designer on staff that enjoys tired worn out jokes.
