Who needs Republican dirty tricks when you can rely on stupid Minnesota Democrats?
Defeated Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry likely is going to get one less electoral vote nationally than he should have—251 instead of 252—because of an apparent mistake Monday by one of Minnesota’s 10 DFL electors.
One of the 10 handwritten ballots cast for president carried the name of vice presidential candidate John Edwards (actually spelled “Ewards” on the ballot) rather than Kerry.
There was stunned silence after the announcement that Edwards had gotten a vote for president, but none of the 10 electors volunteered that they voted for Edwards as a protest, nor did anyone step forward to admit an error.
Meuers said he was certain that the Edwards ballot wasn’t his, but he noted that “both the candidates were named John, and the ballots looked pretty much alike.”
As Free Will’s Aaron notes: “Look, guys, you got the benefit of the doubt with the ‘butterfly ballots’ in 2000, but we can’t dumb it down for you much more than this.”
