The Rights of the Dead

By late yesterday, some analysis had been done by the South Carolina's Attorney General over voting on Saturday.  The Attorney General....Alan Wilson....decided that he had to call up the US Justice Department, over possible voter fraud.  The issue?  Well.....953 dead folks voted in the Saturday Republican primary.

I know it's a bit shocking.  Typically, dead folks vote Democrat (what we've been told over the past decade since folks started noticing the dead voter trend).

We could analyze this and come to several conclusions.  First, the dead folks were mostly independent voters and decided to dump Obama, and hang with Mitt or Newt or the Rick guy or that Ron Paul dude.  No one has ever interviewed dead voters to determine their affiliation, and one might suspect they were more Democrat than Republican, but maybe folks are wrong on that account.

Second, typically....dead folks only voted in major elections....and not primaries, so this creates a new window of opportunity.  If we can get more dead folks out in the election, it might mean more votes for Republicans during this primary season.

Third and final, some state investigators are going to show up at various homes and ask some stupid questions.  Some widows, and widowers are going to be asked how their dead husband or wife (for over a year), came to vote in the primary.  Some nephews are going to be bluntly asked if they used Uncle Karl's absentee ballot that came in the mail.  Some folks are going to look at the postal delivery guys and suspect that they intercepted the absentee ballot that came.  I'm guessing that a dozen folks are going to face state charges and have to find a lawyer.

So here we are....stuck with 953 dead folks voting in South Carolina's primary.  Yeah, they might have all voted for Ron Paul....that's my thinking on this.  I'd like to believe that anyway.
