Judge Restores Early Voting To All Ohioans Because He Hates The Troops

The Obama campaign filed a lawsuit way back when, like last month or something, to claim that it was unconstitutional for Ohio to allow military voters early voting time in the three days before the election without extending the same time to all Ohio voters. Mitt Romney predictably lied about it, because the only things that come out of Mitt Romney’s mouth are nouns, verbs, and lies about the nouns and verbs he just used. A federal district court judge ruled today that everyone in Ohio gets to vote the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before the election. YAY VOTING (BUT NOT FOR THE BLACK GUY, OKAY?)

Hero Elections Officials in Ohio Save Voting Process From Black People

It is kind of an open secret these days that the GOP is marching ever closer towards becoming a far-right nationalist movement that self-legitimates using Biblical discourse combined with claims to a monopoly on expressions of American authenticity. So we shouldn’t really be too surprised every time a prominent Republican says something overtly racist, in an email, to a member of the press, about voting rights and who should have them and on what schedule. And yet we ARE surprised! We are kind of shocked actually! Not just this time, but every single time! We think this is probably because we are bleeding heart liberals who do not watch Fox News and are thus shielded from what America has become, although we welcome other theories. Anyway, Franklin County (Ohio) Elections Director William Anthony Republican Party chair and elections board member Doug Preisse (sorry, don’t know how we fucked up that one!) is firm on preventing early in-person voting because it is only “fair” and “reasonable” for voting to take place on a schedule that fails to accommodate urban people, by which he means black people, which he is actually kind enough to state outright in an email to a reporter with the Columbus Dispatch: Read more on Hero Elections Officials in Ohio Save Voting Process From Black People…

Ohio Secretary Of State Turns Car Around, Gives Equal, Crappier Voting Opportunities To All

The New York Times opined yesterday that Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted was engaging in “overt discrimination” just because he was overseeing the systematic extension of extra voting hours exclusively to Republican counties. Well, Jon Husted got really angry on this road trip that we call Election 2012, and did what pissy dads everywhere do: HE TURNED THIS CAR BACK AROUND.

Ohio May Choose The Next President (Who Will 100% Be Mitt Romney Guaranteed)

It was only a few short days ago that Mitt Romney lied for no apparent reason about Barack Obama wanting to disenfranchise military voters. Somehow, giving everyone in Ohio three extra days to vote would be like the next Pearl Harbor, except instead of Japanese bombs, Obama’s planes would drop little Dennis Kuciniches to socialize everything. But hey, Mitt Romney, turn that frown upside down! (Or that weird grin-grimace thing you do when confronted with the spectre of human feelings.) Even if you can’t hide behind the military to temporarily disenfranchise Democrats, there’s like a million other ways you could do it, because Ohio Republicans are the Steve Jobses of Democrats not voting.
