The cartoons were downloaded from the Go Comics Website.

I wonder how much it’s going to cost the taxpayers to prove that some of ACORN’ problems with voter registration amounted to some dishonest employees and some very lax supervisors instead of deliberate fraud.

Incidentally if there is fraud involved it’s registration fraud, not voter fraud. Misdirection piled upon misdirection. Apparently there is very littile evidence of out and out attempts to vote illegally, but there's plenty of evidence of voter intimidation.

It doesn’t matter how many times you fill out a registration card, you still only get to vote once.

It doesn’t matter if someone filled out a card under the name Donald Duck, unless he/she presents some proof that they are Donald Duck they don’t get to vote.
In the meantime I haven’t seen any cartoons about police or sheriff’s cruisers parked near polling places in minority neighborhoods in Texas. I haven’t seen any cartoons and barely any news stories about the rumor mongering that claims that undercover cops with be at polling places on the lookout for voters with outstanding warrants or traffic tickets. And will arrest those voters on the spot. Where are the cartoons about the wholesale purges of eligible voters in states where people with felony records aren’t allowed to vote? Where are the cartoons skewering aggressive “poll watchers” who try to intimidate voters?
God/dess I love Oregon’s vote by mail. And official or not, there are estimates that as many as one fourth of the eligible voters will vote before Election Day. Gee I can’t imagine why they’d want to do that. ;-)
I see Blogger isn't always cooperative when it comes to paragraphs. :-P

RE Paragraphs in blogger: If you compose your post on a word processing program, and copy and paste, you have to go back into the post and separate the paragraphs manually. Kind of a pain, but it is what it is.

RE this post: The GOP continues its self-serving manipulation of the "liberal" media...

So true. Even the "liberal media" asks how high when somebody says jump.

Thanks for the hint. I did that but it didn't carry through. Just be contrary. LOL

I have a migraine and I don't suppose the cure is even round the bend. :::sigh:::

My ex and I went and voted in Texas today, but I have to admit, it made me nervous that we voted electronically, with a touch board, with no paper to show for it. My son who's a locksmith doesn't like those electronic touch boards. He says they're relatively easy to hack. I hope he's wrong. Lines were long here in Texas. We waited a good half hour.
