Is early voting a “travesty”? Why is it so difficult? Seems to me people managed to vote on election day without all the high drama and need for early this and that for the first two centuries.
Here’s a travesty, though – that members of our military routinely see their votes disallowed. Shouldn’t our military men and women, in this era of modern communication – and in an era where folks in Ohio can register themselves as living on parkbenches and vote the same day – be able to “register” wherever they are stationed (their “precints), vote there and have their votes counted and reported on by their superiors? Why is this so damned difficult? Our military deserve to be able to vote, real-time, and to have those votes counted.
The other travesty, of course, is that here in America, in the year 2008, the press can publicly withhold useful information from voters, and other members of the press don’t care about it, and no Democrats think honor demands some transparency. We’re not supposed to know about or care about yet another dubious association of Barack Obama’s, we’re just supposed to get in line and vote for him. I don’t like that version of America
Or, as Andrew McCarthy writes: The Los Angeles Times’s Strange Notion of Journalistic Ethics is very odd, indeed.
