Stupid early voters

I heard this morning that 45% of the electorate in Orange County has already voted.

And, they had to wait in long, long lines to do it.

That's just stupid.

Early voting was only available at a handful of locations, thus the lines.

All the better for us intelligent people, though.

There will be 262 polling places tomorrow, and we should be able to stroll right up to a booth in our precinct to cast our ballots with little or no waiting involved.

Now, I know there are some people who legitimately needed to go vote early, because they will be out of town on Election Day or else had to vote by absentee due to illness, etc.

But, it seems to me the vast majority of the people loitering around our local libraries last week had no legitimate reason for being there, except that they're a bunch of lemmings who've gotten drunk on the Kool-Aid of a false prophet.

I wonder, drunk as they were and are, how they would feel if something transpired in the days after they cast their early ballot that would make them change their minds about a candidate or initiative. By then, of course, it would be too late.

That's just one of the many reasons why we have an election DAY, not an election WEEK.

But, the lemmings will never understand that, I suppose.
