SUPER TUESDAY POLLING PIX  3:20 pm March 6, 2012

Throw Your Vote In The Trash Right Here

by Jim Newell

Dump your prostitutes here too!Wonkette back-alley trash operative “Jim S.” sends us this Super Tuesday Polling Pic of democracy in action in Huntington, Virginia, where some rascally teenagers or volunteer poll workers put a comical “Vote Here” sign over the fetid waste depositories. What does this mean?

Since Virginia’s primary is only between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul, we can only assume that this is a plot by the Trilateral Commission to trick Paul voters into throwing their votes away, maybe. Oh and wait, those cans are BLUE, generally connoting recycling? The neoliberals are definitely up to something.

Did you see other hijinks or something else horrid at your Stupor Tuesday polling station today? Share it with tips@wonkette.com or the Trilats will give you the hantavirus and gonorrhea.

Just like Tehran and Moscow.

James Michael Curley March 6, 2012 at 3:50 pm

The invisible hand of the free market works for votes also. In one Russian Precinct Putin got 387 more votes then registered voters. Classic supply and demand curve for such a popular leader.

OneYieldRegular March 6, 2012 at 3:22 pm

That tree in the background looks like it might have carried ACORNs. Coincidence? I think not.

nounverb911 March 6, 2012 at 3:28 pm

It's also just the right height for Newt to hang himself.

weej_bain March 6, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Already did, he's not on the ballot in VA.

actor212 March 6, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Needs moar coons.

Barb March 6, 2012 at 3:23 pm

A place to vote and dump a baby, a twofer.

Lascauxcaveman March 6, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Better check with our expert, Prommie, on that.

meatlofer March 6, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Fucking Virginia,again.

Puffperney March 6, 2012 at 3:25 pm

No.. No.. West, by God, Virginia!

Data Exactly March 6, 2012 at 3:23 pm

You're not supposed to convey any message at the place you vote at though. Gingrich would be up in arms if he wasn't upside down in the trash can nearby.

nounverb911 March 6, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Is Huntington, Virginia, the home of Huntington's Disease?

Puffperney March 6, 2012 at 3:24 pm

Perhaps coincidentally, Huntington, WV was determined to be the "unhealthiest city in the U.S." last year.

chascates March 6, 2012 at 3:25 pm

It's funny 'cause it's true!

MissTaken March 6, 2012 at 3:25 pm

As CalTrans says:

Slow For The Vote Zone!

weej_bain March 6, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Our principal engineer is a CalTrans alumnae and a DRat.

OkieDokieDog March 6, 2012 at 3:28 pm

I'm sitting out this Stupor Tuesday. As a registered Republican – yeah yeah – it's along story – anyway living in Okhelloma the only satisfaction I get in voting is voting against people like Gov Mattress Mary TWICE! I just can't bring myself to vote for any of these… humans?… today.

actor212 March 6, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Virginia is a blue state? Do we have confirmation on this?

ChernobylSoup March 6, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Oscar the Grouch's petition to the Southern Poverty Law Center finally paid off.

SayItWithWookies March 6, 2012 at 3:30 pm

That's the libertarian full-service grocery store.

OneYieldRegular March 6, 2012 at 3:51 pm

I may well remember that for the rest of my life.

Callyson March 6, 2012 at 4:01 pm

Just tell your hoodlum friend outside
You ain't got time to take a ride
Yeah, that sounds like the best rejoinder to the GOP nominees that I've heard in a while…

actor212 March 6, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Wait!

Did Newell actually put alt-text in???????????????????????????????

SorosBot March 6, 2012 at 3:50 pm

It's a Super Tuesday miracle!

MissTaken March 6, 2012 at 3:59 pm

I think a Jim alt-text signals the Airing of the Grievances. Or am I mixing up my Festivus with my Electivus again?

SorosBot March 6, 2012 at 4:02 pm

Well there are a lot of grievances to be aired with the final four GOP candidates so it works. An hee, Electivus is good.

BigDumbRedDog March 6, 2012 at 3:31 pm

I compost all of my votes. They are great for the garden!

DaRooster March 6, 2012 at 3:40 pm

Careful. 'Cuz too much fertilizer will burn the plants.

SorosBot March 6, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Aren't Ron Paul voters already throwing away their votes?

GOPCrusher March 6, 2012 at 4:21 pm

I thought they were fighting the system?

BaldarTFlagass March 6, 2012 at 3:33 pm

With all due respect to "Jim S." and Mr Newell, I'm just not feeling it. I guess it's part of the general (primary?) malaise I'm experiencing.

actor212 March 6, 2012 at 3:36 pm

This "Jim S." gets around. He was at my AA meeting last night.

I only went because I like to laugh at quitters.

nounverb911 March 6, 2012 at 3:35 pm

And their money.

SorosBot March 6, 2012 at 3:50 pm

Their blimps also too.

Sharkey March 6, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Somebody should photoshop that onto the dead-rat-in-a-toilet pic.

chascates March 6, 2012 at 3:38 pm

Isn't blue the color worn by United Nations troops, who are therefore trying to quash this election?

WhatTheHeck March 6, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Garbage in. Garbage out.

Mumbletypeg March 6, 2012 at 3:42 pm

Could we do Caption contests, like the olde WaPo Style Invitational used to provide wacky cartoon scenes for readers to submit entries?

Pfft — that was back in the day when I still read things in print. OK can we suggest ALT-TEXT's, then.

Joshua Norton March 6, 2012 at 3:45 pm

We interupt our regularly scheduled blog to bring you the Super Tuesday Exit Polls so far:

I thought I was shopping at Wal-Mart – 60%
That Kenyan Guy – 30%
You're kidding me, right? – 10%

Also, Newt accuses his ex-wives of "going Negative".

We now return you to our regularly scheduled snark-fest.

actor212 March 6, 2012 at 3:51 pm

Also, Newt accuses his ex-wives of "going Negative".

I thought negatives were what kept their mouths shut in the first place?

For Newt, "going negative" ought to be a synonym. In fact, we ought to simply call it "going Newtative"

BarackMyWorld March 6, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Off topic, but in case anyone did see this…it was perfect. Just perfect.

weej_bain March 6, 2012 at 4:04 pm

Looks like he got some santorum on his fingers when he removed his hookah.

onemoretime79 March 6, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Not necessarily off topic, no. Now that I've seen it, not at all.

This is what bothers me, it's NOT OT ! How any female could, in good conscience, cast her vote for any of the GOP field (this year, especially) is beyond me (and has been for pretty much all of my voting past (but I digress). The tepid response from the real GOP candidates says it all.

Thanks but fuck! seeing this has pissed me off all over a -fuckin-gain.

prommie March 6, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Looks just like where Bristol Palin got knocked up.

VaWyo March 6, 2012 at 3:48 pm

I was thinking about voting in the republican primary today, for fun. But couldn't get motivated. With only Romney and Paul on the ballot, it was too boring.

UnholyMoses March 6, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Your move, Diebold.

Generation[redacted] March 6, 2012 at 3:57 pm

You mean those aren't the new Diebold voting machines?

UnholyMoses March 6, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Nah. Those are recycling bins. Diebold goes straight to the incinerator.

Or the home of a Republican Attorney General who happens to be the state chair of a presidential candidate's re-election campaign, and that candidate just so happens to win despite historically-at-least-somewhat-reliable exit polling showing the exact opposite, and the fact that there were more complaints to the FEC in one city than they usually get nationwide over the course of several decades.

But the pic is from Virginia, not Ohio.

johnnyzhivago March 6, 2012 at 4:00 pm

I like those plastic trash containers. Really sprang for big bucks on those.

JustPixelz March 6, 2012 at 4:08 pm

No voter ID needed!

Repubicans recycling Bush policies.

Ken's not home, man.

Sassomatic March 6, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Dead fetuses on the right, civil rights on the left.

pinkocommi March 6, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Of course, Mittens has no idea what those big blue containers are. He likes to fire the people who move them around on his behalf though.

actor212 March 6, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Fuckityfuckfuck….

Jukesgrrl March 6, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Be polite. Save those middle-aged lady poll-workers the trouble of carrying your ballot to the trash.

HarryButtle March 6, 2012 at 6:32 pm

To great fanfare, the Viginia GOP wheels out a newly refurbished Voting Booth for the Coloreds. New recepticle made from high-tech polymers, but it still has that authentic, old timey Jim Crow feel!

ttommyunger March 7, 2012 at 6:36 am

Waiting for Wolf Blitzer to explain this to me…..waiting…….waiting……
