• South Carolina Man Frustrated by Machine

    Ha, no, this is not about Mitt Romney. This is about the way we vote, in the South Carolina-shaped part of America, in 2012…

    None of the three electronic voting machines at the Midway precinct in Newberry County were working when the polls opened, and Randy Waddell of Prosperity was frustrated that he had to vote using a paper ballot.

    "It's ludicrous that we're still voting with a crayon and a piece of paper," said Waddell, who said only one of the three machines worked the last time he voted. "If South Carolina can't afford decent voting machines, we ought to give up on the election business."

    Come on, Mr. Waddell, that's not the spirit! We couldn't even muster decent candidates this primary season, and we're carrying on with the election business anyway, so what's a broken machine or two?
