George Bush Accidently Votes For Obama (satire)

From the Daily Currant:

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.

"First of all, everything was very mismaladjusted on the screen. You shouldn't put the senators and the congresspeople and the presidents all jumbled together like that. It's too crowded. Just confuses folks."

Bush then explained that after marking the wrong candidate, he sought to correct his error by clicking the red "Cast Ballot" button, thinking that it was designed to 'cast away' the ballot and bring up a fresh one:

"Usually red means stop and green means go. I thought I was stopping"

Oh. My. God. How much I wish this were true, it's hysterically funny.

Whole thing here:

1. Was that satire?


It was presented here yesterday as not.

2. Yes, it is

It was posted on The Daily Currant, which makes no secret that it is a satirical newspaper. I wish it were true, and it's certainly believable enough, but no. Not true.
