    Can anything get worse for the Repugs? The folks from SNL are having fun galore.

    Yet 8 precincts can't verify because the ballots are gone. What is with Republicans and elections? They're the ones always screaming voter fraud, trying to take away minority voters' rights, yet things like this occur with their elections time and again. Wasn't it a clerk in a county in Wisconsin for a supreme court judge's re-election who had some problem with the ballots – suddenly found enough to change the election results? Good grief, do we need other countries to come in and watch our elections, like we do around the world? This is getting ridiculous.
