The Children Will Have to Be Spanked

If appearances aren't too decieving it seems that many of the young 'uns will need to have their bottoms beaten badly. Apparently, alot of the mythic cavalry of the "youth vote" stayed home or went home early, playing Xbox instead of playing Democracy.

Could it be that the eight hour lines at the polling places were too much for their little attention spans? Quite possibly.

But if that's the case, the real fault is the Secretaries of State, who must be punished drastically. My early take is that the under-availability and underpreparedness for the high voter turnout was engineered with exactly short attention spans in mind. "If we can't convert them, let's bore them," would be a good distillation.

The Secretaries of State will have to be taken to task and to the carpet in order for elections to be fair and free. An eight hour wait is acceptable in maybe Afghanistan, but not here. My bet is that the "Conservative" noise machine will be making fun of short-attention spans, talking about how "in some countries, an eight-hour wait is standard," rather than looking at why it happened and changing it.

No one should have to wait more than an hour.

Karl Rove is brilliant.

    I don't know how Secretaries of State can be partisan hacks and still keep their jobs. We had Katherine she-devil Harris announcing GB the winner in 2000 and then Andrew Card "calling it" for Bush in 2004! Isn't that a little rife with conflict of fraudulent interest?? Bastards!

    I'm sure the long lines was one of the many fraudulent tricks, and the problem should be addressed. But I believe that if all the votes had beed recorded and counted correctly, John Kerry would be our new presdident. George Bush is still illegitemate!
