"How can we expect our soldiers to go off to war for another countries right to vote in a democracy, when our own voting system is so crippled?" Senator Barbara Boxer, D-CA, sure has a lot class.

Let's all adhere to the same voting guidelines and gee golly fuckin' willikers, boy and girls, is a paper trail too much to hope for? We wouldn't tell the Afghans or the Iraqis, now in this part of Afghanistan or Iraq, if you've ever had a felony, you can't vote.

In one part of your country, you must register 90 days in advance for the privilege to vote; yet in another part, you can register a week in advance.... You get the idea. Think I'll go see what the blogworld and World news has to say about yesterday's events on Capitol Hill. more...

Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
