Election Whoopee in a Banana Republic!

Item: GOPs Brian Kemp purges over half a million voters.

Item: Georgia Secretary of State running for Gov. says he’s ‘concerned’ if everybody exercises their right to vote.


So is it 53,000 voter registrations that have been tossed in the proud State of Georgia as those e-announcements shrill? or 340,134?

Greg Palast says it’s 340,134 and he’s got their names. Now why would  a nice man like Brian Kemp ever think of doing such a nasty thing? When he was elected Secretary of State—that’s the proud State of Georgia—didn’t he swear he would uphold the Constitution? Well yes, he did. But the constitution he pledged to uphold was his own robust constitution, and not the state’s. And it must be pretty robust ‘cause he tossed 1 in 10 Georgia voters off the rolls, especially those who might cotton to his opponent, Stacy Abrams, Georgia’s first black woman candidate, for Governor.

Now if you knew you would lose, and lose to a black woman, wouldn’t you try to whitewash a few names off the rolls, say maybe 10,000, or why not a little more, say, maybe 50,000, and while you’re at it, why not go whole hog at 340,134?  Who’s counting anyway, and if anyone actually tries to question you, why it’s simple, old buddy:  you say they just moved.  Moved?  Well, yes, they didn’t answer my nice glossy junk mailer I sent them, so they must’ve moved.  And who’s this Greg Palast anyway? Some Yankee smart ass, meddling where he has no bidness.  And anyway, as Secretary of the proud State of Georgia, you got every right to ask for a recount anyway, so if you don’t off them coming, you get to off them going.

Republicans annonce the elephant as their symbol has outlived its usefulness. It's headed out the door to be replaced by the noble condom.
(Is there any other kind?)

RNC chairman, Reince Priebus explained that the condom more clearly reflects the Party's current stance because the condom accepts inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you're actually being screwed.
