For months, the Obama campaign has been targeting discrete demographics in the hopes of securing a victory of the president: they've gone after Ohio autoworkers and Pennsylvania muppeteers, binders of women and satchels of young men, single moms and office park dads. But it's possible that for all their effort, they'll be unable to overcome the advantage Mitt Romney has among one key demographic: Our nation's voting machines.
Consider the experience of one Pennsylvania voter, who repeatedly selects the icon for Obama, only to see a check mark appear next to Romney's name…
At least that's what they want you to think. Just as likely, this represents the revenge of the machines. After months of listening to painful, repetitive "jokes" about Mitt Romney's robotic nature, his kin-bots are rising up to take what's theirs. I, for one, welcome our new touch-screen overlords.
