    Enough with the IJ. It's no better than citing Rush Limbaugh as a source.

    You don't expect HuffyPuffy or AlterNut to run such a story, do you? :lol:

    Alternet is just another blog-rag too. Huffington Post is at least a legitimate news outlet.

    Okay, fine, I'll explain.

    First, there are not any ballots being lost. There is a dearth of absentee ballot requests. So the headline is false, for starters.

    Second:

    Uh, dipshit. You are assuming all 126,251 Viriginians serving in the miltary requested ballots and that 124,505 of those requests got lost.

    How did you get to be so stupid? That's a good question.


    Finally:

    They have one third the requests they had four years ago. That is certainly notable, but not surprising.

    But 2008 was the exception, not 2012.

    The enthusiasm in this election is quite a bit lower than it was in 2008. Everyone was "Fired UP and Ready to GO!" back then. Remember?

    Not so much today.

    Obama has been a huge disappointment for his supporters, and Romney is a bumbling idiot. There is no love. No spark.

    You're ruining her thread by inserting logic.

    Not to mention, in 2008 there were alot more military personnel overseas at the time. Now that we've brought a good many of our people home, there will naturally be a lesser need for absentee ballots.
