And so it begins . . .

From The Agonist:

Thousands of Floridians who think they're registered to vote could be turned away at the polls Nov. 2 because their voter registration forms weren't completely filled out, officials said Friday.

Secretary of State Glenda Hood said some groups registering voters are turning in application forms with information missing, such as unchecked boxes asking whether applicants are citizens, mentally incompetent or felons.

A group that's been seeking copies of the incomplete applications in an effort to help people complete them said Hood's office, citing state law, has begun blocking them.

"Clearly, way over the number that could determine the election" won't be able to vote, said Judith Browne, a lawyer with the Washington-based Advancement Project, which promotes multiracial participation in voting. She was referring to President Bush's disputed 537-vote victory in Florida.

[. . .]

Just FYI, Glenda Hood is 2004's version of Katherine Harris, the Florida Secretary of State who facilitated the Crawford Putsch of 2000. This is the Republicans' ace in the hole, key Republicans in swing states who are in a position to influence the vote count. And don't forget Diebold, the corporation who makes most of the digital voting machines and a big Bush/Cheney campaign contributor. Remember, Karl Rove told Sean Hannity that he had some 'surprises' for Kerry.

Update: 13:55:

Pink Bunny of Battle: Return to Sender.

No more Land’s End shirts for this rabbit. [1]

Some Lands’ End employees said Tuesday they were hoodwinked into attending a speech by former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani at the company’s Dodgeville plant.

Viewers said the company told them Giuliani’s speech would be motivational in nature. Instead it was a political speach supporting President George W. Bush for reelection.

They'll do anything to win, including attempting to brainwash their contributors' employees.
