Military Absentee Ballots Delivered One Day Late, Would Have Swung Election For Mitt

Does the left still think every vote should count?


Quote:
WASHINGTON, DC Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.

Officials say the ballots were delivered late due to problems within the military mail system. Tracking invoices show the ballots sat in a warehouse for a month, then they were accidentally labeled as ammunition and shipped to Afghanistan. At Camp Dwyer, Marine Sergeant John Davis signed for them and was surprised at the contents.

Quote:
Its a shame, Rear Admiral John Dawes said when asked for comment. I expected a delay so I ordered that everyone cast their votes eight months ago. Its really unfortunate that our mail system failed us and directly affected the course of history.
The whole report of incidents is pretty bad. Another military screw-up or the advantages of incumbency?

Feel free to delete it, then. That's what I would do if I had the option. But it's not a post so I can't.

To be fair, that web site does suck. It's not nearly as funny or clever as the Onion, and the article you posted does read like a serious article.

I does. But if that site is satire...oh brother is it poorly done. It's not all blatantly obvious either. Not like say the Onion or even the Cube.

It's frowned on by the establishment. It's really not a big deal.

If you can read that text and in ANY way not IMMEDIATELY know its either satire or insane, it says a lot about your intellect.

Not when you know how govt operates....particularly the post office.
Apparently, you have never had anything valuable and irreplaceable lost by it. I have.
My dad worked there for 30 years and complained.

But I did a quick read...not a careful study. But ya' know, smart people make mistakes. Look at how often scientists have been wrong through history until a single one comes along to straighten things out for the rest of them.

Very much this.

In other news, I think HCF is still demanding a full investigation.

It actually means nothing regarding intellect. It's called just not being careful. The guy who linked it actually posted in parentheses at the end of his comment, that it was satirical but also believable because of how govt operates. I didn't read beyond his link though. But flame away, it says more about your own character.

Meanwhile statists like Fat Elvis, Dave Lane and FD believe the most demonstrably false ideas proven by history time and time again. That somehow we can all pay $10 in taxes, with the bureaucracy getting $7 of that dollar but still get $20 back.

You know that there are problems when your beliefs fall hand in hand with a satirical piece.

You thought for a second that some rear admiral could order the entire military to fill out ballots in MARCH?!
