Look, allowing regular citizens to vote is a necessary evil. You don't like it, I don't like it, Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster doesn't like it. Nobody likes it. But we put up with it even though they sometimes do ridiculous things that damage the nation like electing Democrats to office.
But having black people vote??? In Maine??? That's kind of going too far, isn't it? When you see something like that happening, there's definitely something nefarious afoot, wouldn't you say?
Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster certainly would…
"In some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted on Election Day," he said. "Everybody has a right to vote, but nobody in (these) towns knows anyone who's black. How did that happen? I don't know. We're going to find out."
When Carrigan pressed Webster on where it happened, Webster provided no specifics or proof of his claims, but said the party would investigate further.
Dozens of black people?! Dozens?!?! Like, are we talking 24 or 36? You don't mean 72, do you? Because that's more black people than even exist in Maine, isn't it?
Okay, I know that Webster is going to investigate this, but, to me, it seems pretty obvious that Obama had a bunch of black voters bussed in from some other state, like Virginia or Ohio or Florida, to lock down Maine's four electoral votes. Because that was always the central piece to his re-election strategy.
We're through the looking glass, people!
