    What’s scary is that Jason’s dad is correct.

    That’s Jason’s brother – but you’re right, it is scary.

    For Foxtrot to go political though is pretty surprising.

    (to nitpick the other character is Jason’s big brother, not dad.)

    Sorry, I have not read comics for about three years now and forgot the cast of characters in Foxtrot (which I used to like a lot back then).

    Coturnix: I don’t see how you can’t tell that the character w/o a costume on is about 16 years old. To be Jason’s father, Jason would have to have been born when Peter was 4 or so.

    Yeah, I was pretty taken aback when I saw that panel today. Foxtrot doesn’t usually go that route, so you know that Bill Amend is just as concerned as a whole bunch of the rest of us. (Unless you’re voting Republican. I understand the glitches with that have all been worked out.)

    The machines have equal-opportunity hackability. Are there more Democrat hackers, or more Republican hackers? Bad idea, no matter what side of the aisle you’re on.

    Alison, while the likelihood is that the Republicans will be doing the hacking, there really are a few Republicans and conservatives who have a sense of honor and decency, One of the first MSM folks that stood up and made a major complaint warning about this — and he’s kept it up all summer — was Lou Dobbs, not your raving lefty. Another was Randy Hedgecock, who sometimes substitutes for Limbaugh. Both were talking about this when the only other place you’d hear about it was BradBlog. (Catherine Crier, who also did several stories on this for Court TV is another.)

    Whenever possible this election, vote by paper ballot — many places give you that option.

    And if there are exit pollers there and they ask you, RESPOND. If there are any dirty tricks, exit polls are good ways of showing them — we’ve even used them in foreign elections to prove there was fraud.

    We should have used the exit polls in Ohio ’04 to show there was vote fraud, but somehow the media didn’t just miss it, they actively worked to smear the entire idea of exit polls being accurate.

    As far as I’m concerned, any Republican who would vote to keep the Rubber Stamp as the majority is worth throwing out.

    Will this election be between Smartmatic and Diebold?

    Amend isn’t the only cartoonist who hit on this (though obviously he’s the more popular of the two):
