Election Night. Gimme My Fix.
« on: November 06, 2012, 04:02:32 pm »
Well, it's election day today.  More to the point, tonight is election night, and that means Roger gets his jones on, bigtime.  3 TVs (Fox, CSPAN, MSNBC), so there's RWNs to the left of me, LWNs to the right, and boring-ass non-partisan monkeys in the middle.  5 laptops for talking smack with friends in Germany, Guam, and Okinawa.  Coffee will be on all night.

Some people drink at election parties, but not us.  We are serious about this shit, and only caffiene will do.  By wednesday morning, I'll be stuck to the easy chair, crusted in my own filth, like a junkie waking up with a needle in his arm.  Some people might be disgusted by that, but shut up.  I'm an addict, and I make no bones about it. 

Bets will be made.  Butthurt will be had, especially if the house changes hands (unlikely) or the senate goes further democrat (likely).  But the REAL commotion will, of course, be the presidential race, which I am here and now stating will go to Obama with 300-308 electoral votes.  Nate, if you let me down, you bastard, I will have your guts for garters.

Anyway, no matter who wins, we'll be treated to two supposedly grown men in full election rut.  Their eyes will be squinted, and they will speak nothing but gibberish.  And THAT, my friends, is the real payoff...Watching two alleged homo sapiens act like howler monkeys.

Keep your football, your baseball, and your basketball.  Enjoy them.  But leave me and my election alone together.  We have something special, something we can't explain to those not in love.

Up the Revolution, Gasbags,
Roger

It is my favorite sport. Like the Olympics, it can only happen every four years. Unless you count mid-terms and the Winter Olympics, which.. meh.

I'm just looking forward to slapping the "Don't blame me, I voted for Nixon" sticker on my car tomorrow.

If there's no decision tonight, I'll be making a "A PLAGUE ON BOTH YOUR HOUSES" sticker for the Toyota.

Voting machines in Ohio are already blowing up.
Also, Fox says TEH BLACK PANTHERS ARE GUARDING POLLS IN PHILLY.
And, of course, AZ and TX have their cops out and about looking for UN election monitors to beat up.

The Daily Beast has a voting irregularity widget.

I sort of want to shake people. VOTE PROVISIONALLY if you haven't gotten an absentee ballot. VOTE PROVISIONALLY if there's some sort of irregularity.

It being Oregon, most everyone I know already voted a week or so ago, and it's been a favorite sport of my fellow Portlanders to say to a near-stranger during casual conversation, "so, vote for Romney?" just for the indignant response.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

Well, Capitol Grilling is offline.  Pretty sure the board owner didn't like us razzing him for voting for Romney, given his "I ONLY EVER VOTE INDEPENDENT/3RD PARTY" schtick.

Funny thing is, he's Tunisian.  I'm sure Romney's America will be very comfortable for him.

Back on, back off.

Zero must be using the same software they're using in Ohio voting booths.

Whee, let the voting interferance commence!

http://www.plunderbund.com/2012/11/05/true-the-vote-forged-signatures-to-get-observers-at-ohio-polls/

Ex post?  Can't see it.


Yesterday we reported that True the Vote was attempting to place observers at precincts in Central Ohio, focusing on African American districts.  We also noted that there might be some problems with the forms they submitted to the Franklin County Board of Elections (FCBOE).
 
The FCBOE met today and determined that True the Vote had likely falsified the forms submitted for general election observers. The new observer forms, filed over the past few days by True the Vote representative (and Hilliard Tea Party Member) Jan Loar, used candidate signatures copied from a previous set of forms filed in early October
 
All but one (Scott Rupert, an independent for U.S. Senate) of the six candidates whose names appeared on the original form had withdrawn permission to use their signatures prior to the submission of today’s forms.   During the BOE meeting Candidate Terri Jamison spoke up to say her name was “forged” on the latest round of forms.
 
The form for appointing observers reads ‘election falsification is a 5th degree felony’.  Election officials have confirmed that there will be a post-election investigation of True the Vote.
 
The forms have been rejected unanimously by all members (Rs and Ds) on the board.  True the Vote observers will not be allowed in Franklin County polling locations tomorrow.  Poll monitoring organizations expect they may still be stationed outside of polling locations.
 
Board member Zachary Manifold told us he was ”amazed that a group that goes to such extreme lengths to claim voting fraud in Ohio would knowingly forge or misuse signatures to try to gain access to Franklin County polling locations.”
 
According to a news release from the Department of Justice their personnel will monitor the election in Franklin County for Voting Rights Act violations.  The Voting Rights Act prohibits discrimination in the election process on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group.

Video from today’s BOE meeting is posted below, along with a copy of voting forms filed by True the Vote and letter from one of the candidates asking that her name not be used by True the Vote.
