Throw Your Vote In The Trash Right Here

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.

      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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

      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…

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

        1. SorosBot

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

      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"

      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.

    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.

      1. UnholyMoses

        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.

    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.

    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!
