Election-Day Cheerleading

That’s right, y’all.  I’ve got my best cheerleader skirt on, shaking my pom-poms to the beat of Democracy; encouraging y’all to vote Republican.

I’ll admit to a bit of nervousness.  Although it wouldn’t exactly be the END of the world if the Democrats took control of the House of Representatives, it would lead to a whole mess of distractions and would probably delay the President’s agenda.  Also, privately, I’ve made some predictions regarding the depressing lack of utility of public polling.  It would suck to be proved wrong, but I’ll get over it the way I always do.  Crow, although slightly greasy, isn’t all that bad with proper seasoning, is all I’m sayin’.

Looking around the web today, I’ve seen that, even though this particular midterm election is more tense than usual, the usual shenanigans are being perpetrated.  It seems that just like in previous elections, the dead in California refuse to give up their franchise; indeed, some vote in multiple election cycles.

Of the dead registered voters, 336 were listed as Democrats, 173 were Republicans and 52 had another party or no party affiliation, reports the local CBS affiliate.

Records show that at least 17 of these deceased voters casted support for a candidate in 2016.

One deceased name that showed up in the records, Ralph Howey, was found to have voted in 2010, 2012 and 2014, despite having passed away in 2009 at the age of 104.  (emphasis theirs)


For a chuckle on this important day, you can also check out this post from the Babylon Bee.  You could probably use a laugh right about now.

If election stuff is too much to deal with, you can rest assured that an age-old “problem” is being addressed by everyone’s favorite billionaire.
