    The practices and professionalism should be investigated and the state of Wisconsin allowed to make it's own decision. If the nation started firing government employees because of incompetence we'd be swamped with unemployed unskilled labor and not enough dirty dishes to keep them busy.

    There's an easy solution to this matter.

    The people have no immediate need to see "instant" results, and that desire should not override the need for accurate results. Therefore, early results of elections should not be made public, only the final official count.

    That would have prevented Dan Blather's deliberate attempt to skew the vote in Floriduh towards Al Gore in 2000, not to mention whatever effect it had on states in time zones to the west who's polls were still open (all of them). Fortunately, SeeBS's efforts at blatant manipulation failed.

    There should be a 24 hour moratorium on poll result, after the last poll for a given elective office is closed. And for US presidential elections, that means when the Guamanian polls close.

    the Mayor just did and revealed his own sick fantasies. Far too much information to be shared. Why is it that so many of you righties have to bring in your icky fantasies and perversions in political discussions?

    I guess it is too far of a stretch to ask you to honestly react to something based on other than your own skewed self imposed ideologically extreme belief system.

    The Mayor did react honestly. He said "ewwww" and stepped away quickly.

    In all circumstances the report to the privately owned Associated Press is irrelevant and what clearly occured was the equivalent of forgetting to add in the electric bill when calculating the monthly budget but remembering to write the check when it was due.

    The AP is irrelevant, the correct count was forwarded to the right people in the required time alotted.

    Oh.

    I forgot.

    That was an analogy and you've proven yourself immune to analagy and reason.

    You have proven that you think comparing apples to cinderblocks is appropriate and clever to boot. And then you wonder why you chipped your tooth on that nice grey but heavy piece of pie?

    We have become the instant satisfaction country. Hell, people already are doing polls for the 2012 election. You have the polls before an election and then you have the exit polls because we just can't take the suspense. Then the news media has to make their quick projections based on a small percentage of votes in.

    It would be funny if there was a 24 hour moratorium as the news station would just be in a hissy fit waiting.

    “We went over everything and made sure all the numbers jived up and they did…everything we went over yesterday afternoon and today, all those numbers jived up and we’re satisfied that it’s correct. And I’m with the Democratic Party, Vice Chair of Waukesha County, so I’m not going to stand here and tell you something that’s not true.”

    The Democrat Party of Waukesha verified the results and the Kloppenburg campaign is currently in Waukesha to do the same.

    There is no conspiracy here.

    I am glad the election turned out the way it did. When the votes are certified, this needs to be over. Recounts will only politicize the Court even more, and stopping that is more important than anything else now. The Court has been politicized too far already, I only hope we can repair that damage. Shame on everyone who turned our courts into politics. Prosser is the new SC Justice of Wisconsin. Finalize it.
    Wellll..... I can't get your first link to load so.....? (Duh duh DUHN!)

    But seriously, my post was more addressing the obnoxiously mocking nature of fate recently.

    Of course the lady who used to work for the guy in question, who is under prosecutory immunity for some election related offense, who has discovered an error on her part twice before that resulted in the flipping of a close election for the Republican candidate, who has sole access to the entire election data system, who has been informed of the inadequacy of her system and refuses to change anything only made another mistake that resulted in the Republican candidate winning when a key battle for the direction of this country hinges on the ideological balance of that court at this time.

    Of course. Happens all the time.

    Sometimes it's just the irony that offends.

    From the same county clerk? I seriously doubt it.
