Placebo Ballots: Stealing California From Bernie Using an Old GOP Vote-Snatching Trick Two million ballots in 2008 were provisional and most were thrown in the garbage. We are heading into a primary where poll workers are going to try to shunt the independent voters to the provisional ballots and get their votes thrown away. If you take a provisional ballot and you are an NPP voter, it will 100% be thrown away because you're not allowed to use that ballot even if they give it to you.

Koch answered: "I want my fair share -- and that's all of it."

Here's a telling example of Scalia's humor from a crucial voting rights case.

Bernie Should Take Satan's Advice Clinton ran a campaign that basically sneered at idealism. It was the vice-principal telling us, "You can't have universal health care, you can't have low-cost education, you can't bust up the banks. A permanent coalition of Bernie activists will quickly turn that sneer into fear. Because if there's one thing a politician hates more than full disclosure of their donors, it's an informed, organized, and activated voter.

The Mandela Barbie I can't take it anymore. All week, I've watched Nelson Mandela reduced to a Barbie doll. From Fox News to the Bush family, the politicians and media mavens who body-blocked the anti-Apartheid Movement and were happy to keep Mandela behind bars, now get to dress his image up in any silly outfit they choose. It's more nauseating than hypocrisy and ignorance.

BUSH STRAFES NEW ORLEANS. WHERE IS OUR HUEY LONG? Hurricanes happen, but death comes from official neglect, from tax cuts for the rich that cut the heart out of public protection. The corpses in the street are victims of a class war in which only one side has a general.

Off the Rails: Big Oil, Big Brother Win Big in the State of the Union There was that tongue again. When the President lies he's got this weird nervous tick: He sticks the tip of his tongue out between his lips. Like a little boy who knows he's fibbing. Like a snake licking a rat...

LOSER NATION America is a nation of losers. It's the best thing about us. We're the dregs, what the rest of the world barfed up and threw on our shores.
