We might as well get a head start on the complaining. Vote fraud in Ohio, who'd a thunk it? From a tiny Acorn a mighty tree doth grow.

Dead Voters Submit Ballots From Beyond

CLEVELAND -- Among the thousands of graves at Highland Park Cemetery, one modest tombstone stands out. Alex Holmes Sr. has been at rest in that cemetery for 15 years. But recent election records show he cast a ballot in this year's primary. And our 5 On Your Side investigation found a home on Cleveland's east side listed as Holmes' address.
Jeremy Moore, Holmes' grandson, was stunned. "He's deceased. Deceased since 1993," Moore said. And it doesn't appear to be a name mix-up.
Records reveal Alex Holmes Jr. -- who is still alive -- voted in the same election as his deceased father.

Oh yeah. I'm sure there's going to be teeth gnashing on either losing side after Tuesday, though I think it'll be doubly so if Obama happens to lose. If McCain loses, I expect various GOP subsets to file lawsuits and demand investigations/recounts. If Obama loses, the same will happen.

And if Barr wins, my guess is the pig's will already be flying and we'll have to watch for failing pig poo.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

Pay attention, there's no exclamation mark at the end of the name.

It's easy to recognize dead voters by their liberal stench.

If Barr wins I'll be keeping an eye out for the other three horsemen of the apocalypse.

No matter who wins I plan on rioting and busting up and burning all my stuff, then forcing the rest of the country to buy me new stuff.

The joke here is that kohanim (who for religious reasons avoid graveyards and dead bodies) should not vote between 4 and 5 because that the hour the dead come to vote.

To use more American witticisms, an old slogan from Chicago: "Don't let the fact you're dead stop you from voting!"
