From ABCNews’s excellent daily political briefing, The Note (registration may be required):
Roll Call ‘s Henry reported yesterday, “Exercising his civic duty in Tuesday’s Democratic primary for governor, [Sen. Bill] Kerry [D-MA] showed up at a Boston polling place at 7 a.m. ÷ only to find people milling about because the machines weren’t working. An aide tells HOH that Kerry slipped on his eyeglasses, spent the next 15 minutes reading the manual for the voting machines and fixed the problem. With order restored, the crowd started clapping.”
Kerry for President! Remember: 41 didn’t even know what a bar-code scanner was….
More from The Note. You may well know that Arnold Schwarzenegger has become active in California Republican politics, no doubt horrifying his in-laws. The Note points to an L.A. Weekly item to the effect that Ah-nuld is testing the waters for a write-in campaign in November’s gubernatorial election.
The Note debunks the report, but misses the obvious. A write-in? For S-c-h-w-a-r-z-e-n-e-g-g-e-r? Against candidates D-a-v-i-s and S-i-m-o-n? How accurate does the spelling need to be on a write-in ballot, anyway?
