George Bush Accidently Votes For Obama

Former U.S. president George W. Bush accidentally voted for Barack Obama today at a polling place near his Crawford, TX home.

According to local reports, the two-term Republican was confused by the instructions on his electronic voting machine and mistakenly cast a ballot he intended to discard.

Witnesses say Bush argued with poll workers for several minutes afterwards in a effort to redo his vote, but in accordance with state law they ultimately denied his request.

The embarrassing incident may have gone unnoticed if it weren't for a local newspaper reporter who happened to be voting in the next booth. Suzanna Everett, a politics correspondent for the Waco Times witnessed the entire ordeal and crafted a cunning scheme to make it public.

Rick Perry Forgets Who He Voted For

Texas governor and former Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry suffered another memory lapse today, forgetting Mitt Romney's name for an agonizing 146 seconds on live television.

The incident occurred this morning outside a Texas polling station where Perry cast his vote. He had invited the media along for the trip intending to stage a photo-op afterwards in an effort to get out the vote.
