Poll Rage

I am completely shocked by the "Poll Rage" incident in Cleveland today.

Shocked!

Shouldn't this sort of thing be happening in Florida instead?

Apparently, a voter became so enraged over the American political process that he went berserk-- damaging voting machines, attacking a bystander, and resisting arrest.

I am completely mystified as to why anyone in Ohio would feel frustrated or peevish over our government, the questionable political process, the stranglehold of conservative special interests, the morally bankrupt foreign policy, inadequate/unusable machines in Democratic precincts, or the pervasive political control by corporate entities.

Apparently I'm not the only one, as the article notes: "It's unclear what caused him to become upset."

Yes, I know I'm lame-- working my dainty little fingers to the bone this week.

voting in Ohio was way more pleasurable an experience than it was down here. I miss it, a lot.
