propasaurus: Oh noes! NAACP members were wearing NAACP labeled clothing!


Worse that that, they didn't hide the fact that they were black.

Rockford received a phone call from downtown telling her to "stand down."

"All of the sudden one of the clerks, Dayan Cohen, said that someone wanted to speak to me on the phone. It was someone from downtown. I got on the phone and she said she was from downtown and that I needed to stand down and that it was okay for the NAACP to be within 100 ft. and they could hand out water.


was it Petula Clark?

"I told her that the NAACP was inside the building, wearing the NAACP clothing and caps"

the horror.

Jackson Herring: PanicMan: Jackson Herring: PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: charges dropped by Eric Holder?

People actually do this? Just go on the internet and lie?

As a millionaire cowboy astronaut, I'm outraged by this.

My mircopenis and I completely agree


I asked around here at NASA and we all agree it's perfectly normal and you have nothing to be ashamed of. Also, stop sending us pictures.

OMG! There were black people handing out water! And they didn't even hide the fact that they were black, just like the kenyan muslim communist usurper-in-chief!

And then instead of smoking demon weed and sexing white women driven crazy with demon jazz, they were helping the old and infirm move to the front of the line! Clearly they were behaving in an atypical manner to influence tbe election.

United Nations-affiliated Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe will deploy election monitors from Europe and central Asia to polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week, according to a report on Saturday.

The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), among other groups, warned this month in a letter to Daan Everts, a senior official with OSCE, of "a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans - particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities."


Still going with "EHRMAGERD!!1! BLERCK PERNTHERS!!!!" Really?

Jesus, "conservatives" are pussies.

I think the best part of this article is the lady angrily describing how all the poll workers just ignored her when she started ranting about black people being near the voters.

But don't worry, crazy bag lady, Townhall is there to take you seriously.

I'm not a Republican, but am the type of liberal that shares in common with them the trait of constant pants-wetting fear and reflexive outrage and was unmanned and dismayed upon voting in the local church and seeing the walls muraled in a childish rendition of the Noah's Ark story which I felt was an extremely provocative, underhanded but aggressive promotion of the GOP. Caused an instant anxiety attack which left me physically incapable of voting for my preferred candidate. So don't pretend like Republicans aren't guilty of voter intimidation tactics.

During the last election in Virginia, some guy had painted a facsimile of the "hope" poster on a huge plywood sign and stuck it to the side of his van. He parked it on the outer edges of the parking lot. I got there early, and the funniest thing was this: there was a small group of Republicans walking side by side, step by step, making sure it was 100 feet away. When I left the polls (they were pretty busy), they were doing it again.

The funniest part: the van was probably something like 250 feet away.

This is just too funny. 3_Butt_Cheeks: tries to say I'm a racist because I posted a quote from the guy in the article, therefore proving that he MUST think the guy in the article is obviously a racist since he's the one who actually said it!

3_Butt_Cheeks: Um, you posted a clearly racist statement. Trying to deflect it now with spin and wharrgarble changes nothing.

Trying to convince yourself that is wasn't a shiatty thing to say is normal, but prob. not the best idea to post it online.



yes. I did post a clearly racist statement. It was a quote from the article. Thanks for proving my point!

But I have to admit. I love how you always bum rush a thread to scream about "OMG! TEH RACE CARD! YOU THE REAL RACSIT!" It's pretty much all you post.

Well, doubtless these were some of Presifart F. Fartsein Fartetoro Fartfarta's personal legion of stormtroopers, which is why these True The Vote shiat wizards chose to go snivel to Clownhall rather than risk ending up like Vince Foster by just calling the cops.

MurphyMurphy: starsrift: ShawnDoc: You heard it here folks, Texas is now a swing state that might break for Obama.

If they keep seducing software companies into their state, it damn well will be.

Seducing?

I can see them running late night tv ads with sultry and scantly clad women:

"Come on down to Texas."

"We'll let you scrum your db in our oracle until you compile. "


Busty chicks on mechanical bulls, with "continuous integration" flashing on the screen.

Sorry, subby. In Virginia, the boundary is 40 feet from any entrance to a polling place.

I used to vote at a school where people would stand just outside the legal boundary handing out party "voting guides." They would hand one of these to you, you would walk into the school and immediately an election volunteer would start yelling at you because you're not supposed to have the campaign literature in public view. It was literally 10 seconds between the time it was handed to you and the time you got chewed out for having it in your hand.

God Bless Democracy.
