Update 6:50 pm…
We hit the mark!
Republican or Libertarian, or — more accurately — libertarian Republican (note the nuanced difference), Richard Rider is the generator of Rostra comment Number 10,000, with this gem at 3:13 pm:
“Filner will present his city pension reform plan as soon as his labor union bosses tell him what it is. And not a second before!”
Now, if that’s not the type of comment we were hoping for as the magic number, none is!
Oh, wouldn’t you know it, Rider just edged himself out for the spot. He had comment 9,999 too!
Rostra is at 9,998 comments right now. Who will post number 10,000? Make it good!
