Since May 20th we've conducted 15 interviews in our ongoing series including our very own Joe C., Nevada Senate Candidate Sharron Angle, son of former Vice President Dan Quayle, Ben Quayle, who is a candidate for Congress, and Tom Reed, the candidate for Congress in New York's 29th District.

This is the first time in three GARs that Mr. K. has not been at the top of the most popular articles list.

This is the first list of most popular articles with no satire pieces in them.

Joe C. tied his posting amount from the last GAR with five, but is short of his record of 11.

Sirchadthepro's top article was his Starcraft 2 review, with 27 views.

Joe C.'s most popular article was on why President Obama is not a socialist, with 59 hits.

Alezend's only article about his review of DragonAge got 5 hits.

Don't forget to comment-- that means you, Joe.

Joe C. has hired a dream team for his Senate Campaign after taunting Kirsten Gillebrand.

We've received a lot of comments, including from FenwayNation, Innominatus, Sr. Frijoles, and jdcroft2001. Keep 'em coming!

    I wish Joe would write more.

    Mr. K said...

    Excellent article. The reason I am no longer numero uno is because u guys are posting more news/polls than I do, and because I am more of a opinion/article kind of person. Kudos to you fellas.

    Sr. Frijoles said...

    Wow You Post A Lot Matt

    Joe C. said...

    I would write more if I were literate.

    Sirchadthepro said...

    I would write more but i don't have that much to say. Not much of an opinion i guess.
