ABC News: Kerry Criticizes Election Outcome
In Democratic districts, it took people four, five, eleven hours to vote, while Republicans (went) through in 10 minutes same voting machines, same process, our America," he said.
So there were Republicans and Democrats standing in the same line and some people were moved to the front of the line because they were voting Republican? Or wait, there were two seperate (but equal?) lines, one for Democratic voters and one for Republican voters, and the people running the Republican line had their shit together?
This makes no sense Sen. Kerry - even if someone screwed with the machines in your so-called "Democratic Districts" there still would have been people in those same eleven hour lines that intended to vote Republican - didn't hear from them though, did you?
I wonder if the election had gone the other way, if Sen. Kerry had been elected - would the Republicans be making the same charge - that machines were distributed unevenly, that people's names had been purged from the voter registration roles? I doubt it. Only nasty Republicans would stoop to those levels - and of course they are smart enough to tinker with the process just enough to ensure a victory, but not make it so obviously lop-sided that one would have to cry foul. 286-251, Sen. Kerry - do you really think the saboteurs are THAT good, that they could cut it that close? I don't.
A Christmas Story
Caleb's birthday is Dec 19th, so on Christmas he was still full of pride for achieving the ripe old age of 4. He was showing Great Grandma Dix (my grandma, now 90) how old he was with his fingers. She asked him if he knew how old she was. Then she began to open and close all ten of her fingers, counting up ten, twenty, thirty as she went. When she got to fifty, Caleb said "Holy crap." And turned and walked away. While I was mortified, my Dad's sisters all fell off their chairs laughing, so did Great Grandma.
