Bad News At Home

I lost my secret decoder ring, so I don’t know if I will get the message from AG Holder as to when it is my turn to go help the New Black Panther Party intimidate white voters in downtown Philly.

    I loved the clip from Fox showing the guy greeting voters and opening the door for them.

    It could only be sold as intimidation because the guy is black. That’s Faux for ya though.

    @kindness:

    There ya go. Big black dude courteously opening a door = intimidation. Overweight white dude opening a door with a surly snarl (ala Dick Cheney) = not intimidation.

    Comrade Mary says:

    I’m sorry, but when it comes to voter intimidation, you have to go to white people to get the job done right.

    Oh — wait:

    The right-wing group True The Vote has been prohibited from monitoring elections in voting stations around Columbus, Ohio, and may soon find itself under investigation for fraud, the Columbus Dispatch reported Tuesday.
    __
    The Houston-based group, which is dedicated to challenging the legitimacy of voters it considers suspect, had its status as an official vote monitor denied in Franklin County, after the necessary number of candidates to assign poll observers withdrew their support for the group, according to the Dispatch.
    __
    Elections officials in Franklin County told the paper that some of application forms requesting observer status for the group’s Ohio branch, the Voter Integrity Project, appeared to have supporting names that were falsified or forged.

    You just missed Erick fearless leader of the Red State Strike Force whining on CNN that Hurricane Sandy will be to blame if Romney loses. I may have to turn off the TV or might overdose on schadenfreude before the polls close on the East Coast.

    Oh, Hurricane Sandy is to blame? Not the fact that Rmoney is the worst major party candidate for President in my lifetime, which includes such gems as Nixon and the deserting coward?

    I have it on good authority that in Maricopa County, AZ, hispanics have been spotted voting. Sheriff Arpaio has yet to comment on this development.

    Hey, at least Dick isn’t shooting them all in the face. On the other hand, I only wish Dick Cheney would show up to my polling place to open the door for me. It’s dark and lonely out there and any number of bad things could happen…..Dick? Dick is that you? BOOM! Oh! I’m sorry Dick.

    That stupid hurricane had to come along and ruin a perfectly serviceable talking point that Obama is in over his head and can’t work with Republicans.

    Before that, the stupid economy had to improve, and wipe out that 8% unemployment talking point.

    It’s damned conspiracy, I tells ya. Arglebargle!

    Nov. 6 (Washington Post)– The Romney campaign now saying internals attributed to their pollster Neil Newhouse showing Mitt up in Ohio, tied in WI, PA “are incorrect”

    The numbers — showing Romney three points up in New Hampshire, two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin — have circulated on conservative blogs since the British tabloid’s report.

    HA HA

    I told my mom about this, and she used a word that people from Northern Ireland over-use, but in this case was entirely appropriate: “Desperate”.

    Only thing missing is that the polling place ain’t on Whitehall Street.

    SFAW says:

    @Culture of Truth:

    Is “are incorrect” the new Rethug-speak for “total bullshit”? Because it seems as if that phrase should have been used with more of Rmoney’s figures than just polling numbers.

    Well, if keeping the polling-place door open is what is required, I’m sure that the NBPP could find no better doorstop than our own Mr. Cole…

    I’ve been driving people to the polls today, and just like in 2008, no matter what part of my city I go into–even the worst housing projects–I’ve been treated with nothing but kindness. I suspect that all-white neighborhoods would not behave the same to black campaign volunteers.

    I love doing VoteRide–but I feel sad that some suburban white woman like myself is needed to help the poor among us get to the polls. It should be easier than this to exercise your right to vote.

    JasonF says:

    As a reminder, during the health care debate, when Tea Party members showed up armed to town hall meetings, they were only exercising their God-given Second Amendment rights, and anybody who felt intimidated needs to get over it.
