Gee, the political party most closely affiliated with voter fraud and Nazi Germany has an early lead in the polls. I'm shocked. I really am.

Whiskey Pete: I have another theory: What Romney and Ryan would do to this country if elected frightens even the most lackadaisical voters shiatless. I think this will be reflected in the outcome.


I don't understand.

How can you not want this magical budget of a 20% tax cut across the board, a 2 trillion increase in military spending, a maintain of social spending, and elimination of the deficit, all paid for via closing a few tax code loopholes that only detrimentally impact the 1%?

I think it's fantastic.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Vote early and often, it's the Democrat way


At least on those days they isn't being lazy and shiftless like those crack smokers usually are. Right, brother?

You know who else had an early lead in the polls?

No, wait, you already done that one. Never mind.

Damn libtards, didn't you get our calls? Republicans vote from January 20, 2009 to November 6, 2012. Libtards (especially enthusiastic libtards) vote November 7, 2012.

There is this hardcore guns owner, fox news watcher, self proclaimed Republican that told me he is voting for Obama because Mitt doesn't stand for anything. Mitt will say anything to get elected.

Jonny Chimpo: I will be voting early as I teach at a charter school, so our buildings are not used as polling places, ergo we have school. I was somewhat surprised how easy it was to register to vote, as I had moved to North Carolina but not yet established residency. I had a proof of residency but they didn't ask for it. I will take one when early voting either way.

The one thing is that I have no clue what to do for local offices. Any suggestions for humorous write-in votes?

There are more self identified Dems than Reps at this point so more Dems voting early should not come as any big surprise but it's still good to note. In terms of the "enthusiasm gap" I have yet to meet anyone I would describe as an "enthusiastic" Romney supporter yet. Heard a few derpers IRL go on about how much they admired Ryan"s "intellect" though. I just laughed at them until they stopped.

I'm looking forward to the all-expenses paid trip to Iran! Of course after a dozen years of war Romney will have to reinstate the draft instate "compulsory patriotism" in order to have enough cannon fodder.

/kidding of course

I wonder which unit Zip, Trog and Blert Romney will be deploying with when we invade Iran?


The unit that has a private mansion in France for missionary work obviously.

Speaking of enthusiasm gaps, what's it say that RON PAUL still won't endorse Romney?

Ya got to admire his reasoning.

"I've been in this business a long time and believe me there is essentially no difference from one administration to another no matter what the platforms," said Paul, a former hopeful for the GOP nomination.

Both Sides Are Bad so... Vote RON PAUL!

Bless his heart.

I know you think you're being clever and snarky here, but re-read how you "fixed" that. You are accusing dems of being aware that it's illegal to vote twice.

Weaver95: Because most rank and file GOP voters don't understand the implications of another war in the middle east.


Or, inarguably more frightening, they understand another war in the Middle East, especially one that involves Israel, will make the Jeeb come back, whisk all Real Americans to Hebbin', and leave us heathens burning in hell on Earth or what the fark ever.
