I’ve been waist deep in the voting problems in 2002 and 2004. So, when Keith Olbermann did a story on voting problems, it peaked my interest.
BTW, I’m convinced that electronic voting machines are the work of the devil (ok that is a little strong but they are NOT what is best for this country.)
So, I figure I could run to DC for the Cowboys – Redskin game. The Cowboys looks somewhat better last week. The Skins looked terrible in their last 3 loses. So, I plan a quick trip. I leave Asheville late Saturday afternoon. I take only a change of clothes. NO COMPUTER. I almost never go anywhere without my computer. So, I go to the game and the Cowboys lose on one of the goofiest plays that I have ever seen (more on that in a future post). I catch my return flight and we sit in the airplane for over 2 hours. I was flying from DC to Atlanta to Asheville. We finally take off from DC and pull into the gate at 10:55. My flight to Asheville leaves at 11 pm. There is no way. The flight is ever leaving from another terminal. No way. So, I ask for my bag. I can go and stand in that line for an hour before I ask the right person and then I’ll have to wait some more.
I’m at a hotel using the lobby computer with some of its keys missing. I’m hoping that I should be able to blog tomorrow evening. All I can say is don’t let the Republicans confuse you. Read the newspaper and figure out where you need to vote. If you have legally registered don’t let anyone talk you out of voting. Don’t let them disqualify you without a fight. Vote. We need every vote. VOTE and make sure your friends vote, too.
Zogby Reuters – Shuler up by 5% 11/1
