You’re kidding, right? jmaster November 2, 2004 Howard Stern said they were all Bush votes. Drudge doesn’t say. Barney Bush November 2, 2004 It’ll be colored green with envy by the losing side. Maggie November 2, 2004 Come on guys, some disenfranchised voters just decided to avoid any GOP hassles at the polling site! lawhawk November 2, 2004 Suspicious powder thrown at polling place in South Jersey: The incident happened at 9 a.m. at Fleetwood Elementary School at 231 Fleetwood Ave in Mt Laurel, N.J., police say. A witness at the scene said a person apparently entered the building, threw a white substance into the air and fled. tongancat November 2, 2004 If they were Republican votes, why did the Kerry campaign come out with a quick denial, saying the story was false? They would have had it all over the news wires and television as quick as possible, if they had been Bush votes! Dee November 2, 2004 The bogus votes in Philly were in areas that no way Bush would get votes. Gore won in those areas about 6-1. I know the city well and I can say with certainty they were NOT Bush votes. Kimberly November 2, 2004 I’m amazed that you had to ASK whether Philly was blue or red, but I suppose if you don’t drive through it every day like I do, and see the literally hundreds of Kedwards signs everywhere, you wouldn’t necessarily know. Out in the burbs it’s a tad more balanced – signs for both candidates on my street, and no signs of vandalism. My car’s in a protected lot during the day; otherwise, there’s no way I’d park in Philly with the pro-Bush bumper stickers that I have. JWhite November 2, 2004 The Republicans are wanting the “Preloaded” machines impounded. When Stern’s misguided bias comes through it makes him sound like a prevaricater. Once you have that repretation (like Gore, Kerry, and Clinton) its difficult to get away with screaming “the sky is falling”. I’m surprised he didn’t blame it on Rove. JWhite November 2, 2004 Boy someone needs a spelling lesson (ME!). Or maybe is was a faux pas. I meant “reputation” not repretation (or did I mean reprehensible reputation). Tripped November 2, 2004 I just heard a little bit of this but 30-40 cars, that the GOP rented for a get out and vote rally, tires were slashed not sure where it was will have to look it up MahaRichie November 2, 2004 Did anyone see Kerry address the press after voting with his family?He may as well had a sign on his forward saying ‘we lost’.The negative body language was overflowing.Tereza stood stone faced with head cocked at his side.His two daughters were all but holding each other up.Kerry himself seemd pissed and drained.My guess is the DNC internal polling is not looking good for KE04. MahaRichie November 2, 2004 I meant ‘forehead’ not forward. mac November 2, 2004 Er….I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade, but those ‘votes’ that were on the machines weren’t votes at all. It’s the number of times those machines have been used in an election. The local news has been making fun of this story unmercilessly. BR November 2, 2004 Mac – I heard differently: that the “votes” on those machines were from the last time they were used and never cleaned out. Sounds deliberate to me.
