Machine problems in TX-22 (yes, DeLay's old district)
For once, these help us (not that that excuses them)

I'm getting this from a friend in Texas:

So apparently Republicans have to write-in a candidate; it's not like Foley's seat in FL where a vote for Foley is a vote for some other guy the GOP picks. The GOP-endorsed write-in candidate is Shelley Sekula-Gibbs. Here's the problem: to write in on the voting machines, you have to use a trackball to select letters on an on-screen keyboard, and the keyboard doesn't have a hyphen.

I would want to cackle with glee about this, but it's even more important to me that people who (for whatever sick reason) want to vote for Sekula-Gibbs should frigging be able to.

1. Dems should insist that Dracula-Fibbs' name be correctly
spelled or thrown out. The two "e's" in Shelley have to be there or no vote. These are Rethuglican rules....

2. I agree.
Were these machines designed by chimpanzees? Everytime you go near one, there's another problem.
