And so it begins. It looks like early voting has started off swimmingly.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - With memories of 2000 and the state's bitter fight over ballots still fresh, Floridians began casting votes Monday and within an hour problems cropped up.
In Palm Beach County, the center of the madness during the recount four years ago, a Democratic state legislator said she wasn't given a complete absentee ballot when she asked to opt for paper instead of the electronic touch-screen machines. And in Orange County, the touch-screen system briefly crashed, paralyzing voting in Orlando and its immediate suburbs.
What a great way to start the election in Florida. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, FLORIDA??? Are you trying to be a trouble-maker? And here is the Idiot of the Day:
Also coming out of the polls on Monday, Steve Perez, 44, said he came early to cast a "protest vote" for Ralph Nader. "What's important is that you vote. I didn't want to get in all the hoopla with all the turnout in Election Day," said Perez, a substitute teacher.
Argghhh. No, Steve Perez, you idiot, what's important is that Kerry wins. Nobody cares about you and your childish "protest vote." You don't get to cast a "protest vote" this time around unless you are a lifelong Republican voting for Kerry.
