Kucinich's xmas present idea: a Floriday voting machine
:rofl:



"Dennis Kucinich has an answer for your holiday gift-giving," our Gannett News Service colleague Chuck Raasch writes. "A Palm Beach County voting machine from the 2000 election 'containing actual chads,' with a 'replica butterfly ballot' and a letter signed by Kucinich proclaiming 'the stolen presidential election of 2000.' "

As Chuck reports, the Democratic presidential candidate's $219.95 gift idea (go here if you're interested in buying one or just seeing the Kucinich campaign's pitch) isn't just an offbeat bit of political promotion. It's also "one of the more vivid examples of the merger of Internet commerce and political action in virtually every presidential campaign this year. Every major candidate sells campaign brochures, T-shirts and other political paraphernalia on campaign Web sites. But some, like Kucinich, are adding much more."

1. Cool!
Too bad I already own one. Nabbed it when PBC switched to the "electronic" ones.

send them to the selectors.
