The Diebold Variations. Yes, I'm in a one-trick pony mood.

Nice notion, but the axe-grinding overshadows the clever.

"Because wit and charm can only take you so far" made me chuckle in a ruthlessly anti-W sort of way, though.

Those are amusing. However, if you make a USElectionFraudFilter post tomorrow, you'll win the Troutfishing Memorial Axe Nubbin.

I'd love to print these out on subway-ad size posterboard and post them in legitimate places. Some of them aren't quite evil enough to be considered fake.

Yeah, I'm no fan of ElectionFilter, but these are damn funny. "In cyberspace, no one can hear you vote" -- heh!

That's the first thing since the election that's got me to laugh about the election. Thanks.

Wolfdog, you must not have heard about who won! Oh man, it'll knock your socks off.

Dammit, I hate it when I'm the curmudgeon.

Once I'd dried my eyes from crying over another electionfilter post, I actually enjoyed the link. Thanks, P_G...now please stop. (Wait, that doesn't sound right...)

Oh, and Pretty_Generic, you will now eternally be my rival, as I have been waiting for serendipity to strike for a good first post idea, and I knew about this site and just assumed I learned about it on Mefi first, so I didn't use it. D'oh!
