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.

2. Early onset dementia perhaps

Makes you wonder if he wasn't suffering from this while in office. It certainly answers a lot of questions and it's not as if it isn't without precedent.

5. You need to move this to GD or Humor.

Your link is a satire site; not LBN. For future ref, your headline needs to be exact.

It is hilarious, though--Nate Silver Predicts Scarbourugh Remains An Asshole, though satire as well, is quite true in spirit!

Sorry, locking. Funny as hell--do repost in a more suitable forum or group.

But it is.
