Oh Lord…

Take me now.

Senators Propose Funds for Paper Ballots to Back Up Electronic Ones
Three Senate Democrats proposed emergency legislation today to reimburse states for printing paper ballots that can be ready at polling places in case of problems with electronic voting machines on Nov. 7.
The proposal is a response to grass-roots pressure and growing concern by local and state officials about touch-screen machines. An estimated 40 percent of voters will use those machines in the election.
If someone asks for a paper ballot they ought to be able to have it,” said Senator Barbara Boxer of California, a co-sponsor of the measure with Senator Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut and Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconson.

They should have left it paper to begin with, duh. But not punchy things that blind-as-a-bat 85 year old transplanted New Yawker ladies in Palm Beach can and do f*ck up routinely. Let’s go uncomplicated and eezy cheezy, like here in Escambia County. It’s called a BIG FAT MARKER and…a straight line.

  1. If they’re too stupid to read a simple voting machine ballot, what makes you think they can read a paper ballot?

  2. But they get to COLOR IN THe LINES!!!

    They should make it more familiar and recognizable, like a bingo card and stamper. Then the old dears would get it.

  4. Um, dear, if I may quote myself: “I should think it patently obvious that someone who is to fucking stupid to work a punch card machine is too fucking stupid to color within the lines.”
    But then, my views on the subject are well known.

    No matter what you try to make idiot-proof, a huge idiot will come along and screw things up anyway.
