That’s because if you have to pee during your six-plus-hour wait to cast a ballot, the bathrooms are verboten. Closed. Not available. No matter how long the line, or if you are elderly, or if the weather is crap (oh, you can’t do that either-no potties for you voter types).
From the article:

Instead, he received a written response announcing that the county would close all restrooms at polling places “to ensure that individuals with disabilities are not treated unfairly,” a January email stated. “[T]he Department’s policy is not to permit access to restrooms at polling sites on election days,” Assistant County Attorney Shanika Graves said in a Feb. 14 email.

This latest voter-suppression effort is, of course, designed to keep the elderly, minorities and working poor from casting their ballots: Democratic voters, in other words. The local Board of Election is pretending that this is a decision based on the rights of the disabled, which is a lie more transparent than a hooker’s blouse. No, it’s Miami-Dade county doing what it does best: rigging elections so that “Republicans” win.

If it’s any comfort to all those voters waiting in long lines to vote this year: no matter the state of the diapers they may have to wear in order to exercise their franchise, they will never be as full of s*** as the elected officials who concocted this, well, crappy idea.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Mr. Blunt and Cranky has so many worthy recipients for this week’s Crown O’ Polished Turds, he may have to outsource the manufacture thereof. There are multitudes of these worthies, and it would be unfair to leave any of them out. He speaks, yea, verily he does, of the “Social Welfare Organizations” who are calling for the defeat/victory of Obama/Romney even though they are not allowed to do so.

These groups (run by Rove and funded by who-knows-whom) are running ads that are pretty damned explicit, and doing it tax-free and behind closed doors, thanks to an amazingly stupid Supreme Court ruling: they are advocating for and against the candidates, and are hiding behind laws meant to benefit charities that do, well, actual charitable works.

Your cranky neighborhood blogger is particularly hacked off about this, because he has  a friend who runs an actual non-profit organization under a 501(c) designation – his is dedicated to raising money for cancer research. These people bust a** to do something good for their fellow citizens.

Rove and his fellow loophole-enabled scumbuckets are using laws meant to encourage people to take care of one another, and using them instead to line their already corpulent pockets and steal elections. Because of their most awesome lying scumbucketry, we not only place the COPT upon their noggins, but we shall grace them with a Bucket O’ Pond Scum right before their coronation, so that the populace may better know what sorts of eminent individuals that they are dealing with.
