This is hyst-fucking-erical.
OK, we’ve been recounting ballots pursuant to the implementation of actual Democracy in the Coleman-Franken race for U.S. Senate.
So what do you think the standard JOKE among the Democrats … working as volunteers to observe the count for Franken … has been? This:
“I challene this ballot because the voter filled in the bubble for Norm Coleman. Obviously, this voter is delusional.”
Ha ha ha. Well, even if it is not the funniest joke you’ve ever heard, it IS a joke. Right?
Well, no, not if you are a Republican. The Coleman challengers have apparently challenged a number of ballots where a voter voted for McCain and Franken, on the grounds that if the person voted for McCAin, they MUST have MEANT to vote for Coleman! In one case, they’ve even challenged a ballot where the voter did NOT VOTE FOR ANYONE FOR SENATE. This is a ballot where there is no choice for senate. The Coleman people want this vote counted as a vote for Coleman because that voter voted for McCain. So they MUST have MEANT to vote for Coleman!!!!
Wow. Don’t believe me? Watch and weep:
