Get to it!

I have an ACTION ITEM for you. Perhaps other bloggers, in a spirit of collaboration, will pick this up.
You might consider going over to CRUX – again, in a spirit of cooperation! – to participate in a poll on their left side bar about the ordination of women.
–> HERE <–
As of this writing, it is on the front page, but you have to scroll down a bit and look on the left (where else) side.
As of this writing…
So, get to work! You might ask your friends to lend them a hand. After all, who doesn’t want a large sample for their poll?
UPDATE… 15 minutes after posting this
UPDATE 1607 GMT:
NO was up to 80.3 but it has slipped. I think the heretics and low-information types are waking up.
A bit of humor….
I noted in the comments section for that poll – who knew there were comments for these polls? – that some of the liberals don’t like the fact that you are voting.
Well done, Luke.
Which leads me to advertise some of my Z-Swag!
You were originally accused of being “Zed-Heads” by one of the libs either at Crux or at the Fishwrap (who can tell them apart?). We should merrily embrace the epithet.
Here are some spiffy mugs and car magnets, to celebrate your mind-numbed minion status:

From the comment at Crux.
I really find it abhorrent that the followers of Fr. Zuhlsdorf do his bidding with such unquestioning loyalty. [I wish!] This priest did not get the proper formation – something was obviously lacking in his RCIA formation and training [No, I wasnt asked to portray my life experience through macramé]. He lives and works as a total free agent, living thousands of miles and an ocean away from his bishop, having little to no communication with him, and most certainly not being supervised by ANY Catholic prelate. [Tell that to my bishop! LOL] That is not how the Church operates and is not how it was established by Jesus Christ. [Because YOU hold everything the Church teaches. Right?] Fr. Z operates as a Protestant, setting his own schedule, justifying his actions because of the current crisis in the Church – as Martin Luther did some centuries ago. [That’s what Luther did?] Pride is the deadliest sin. OK, so “Fr. Z” is fluent in several languages and “brilliant” – we get it. [No. You don’t “get it”.] He uses every opportunity to make others believe he has a superior intellect to the rest of us poor ignorant peons. [Yes. YOU are a poor ignorant peon. [eye-roll] Therefore I will go easy on you here and pray for you offline. ] When will someone in Rome call this wayward priest to task? This is not how Catholic priests are supposed to behave – to just take off and set up independent shop in any jurisdiction they please, and solicit funds from the lay faithful for who knows what purpose… Doesn’t this guy have to at least give a financial accounting to someone???? [Believe me the IRS is deeply involved! Meanwhile, please sign up for a monthly donation?] Aren’t there some rules about this??? [???… !!!. ???? .. ??? … Let me add… ?!?!????!] He bans anyone who disagrees with him from making comments or giving their opinion. [No. I ban jerks. Disagreements are fine, so long as they are not persistently pointless, heretical, ad hominem, scandalous, etc.] And Fr. Z supports wholeheartedly the schism of the Society of St. Pius X (the SSPX), [Have you ever read my blog? …. ??!?!? !?!] openly supporting the SSPX at any chance he gets – he edited their Spanish/Latin Missile for them, [I did? I didn’t know that. Sounds like really dangerous work.] thus doing work for this illicit, breakaway group. Fr. Zulsdorf [sic] even encouraged Catholic parents to send their young children to the schismatic schools run by the SSPX. [Yah… that sounds like me. [eye-roll]] He insisted that Catholics can meet their Sunday obligation at SSPX Masses, which of course they cannot do. [Yes, they can.] Thanks for giving me the opportunity to vent. Maybe a faithful bishop will read this and decide to finally take action and reign Fr. John Zuhsdorf in, but I’m not holding my breath. [Please. Do.] Piests seem to be able to get away with just about anything these days; there is no discipline at all.
Sad business. In most comboxes you find the vilification of people, direct attacks on people rather than on ideas or thoughts. I’ve edited by own interjected comments, above, since I at a few points I failed in charity… for which I apologize. Usually this sort of thing rolls of my back, but it was a really nasty day and this sort of low-information, libelous ad hominem got under my skin. In any event, I try to keep the combox here on a fairly even keel, deleting comments which clearly go over the line.
UPDATE 17 Oct 1507 GMT:
Have you voted today? You might be able to vote again.
UPDATE 17 Oct 19:53 GMT:
The latest… slightly off but still showing well.
And now I see that dear old Phyllis Zagano has leapt to the defense her project!
NB: Apparently anyone who has expressed “No” to the ordination of women is “angry”. Also, take note of that “again”. Fantasy.
Odd. I don’t see a lot of anger in the comments in this thread, above. Some jocularity, but no anger.
Who are the real angry folks, I wonder?
UPDATE 18 Oct:
Apparently you can vote everyday.
