Thread Name: Ballotgate in Florida
Subject: RE: Ballotgate in Florida
I'm a teacher. Sometimes a student does not understand my directions. If I recognize this, I restate my directions and give a second chance. Usally it is just one or two students. When a signifigant number of students fail to understand my directions, then I have to look at the way that I am explaining things. I don't ever call them dummies because it insults my intelligence more than theirs.

Our fellow citizens do not deserve this ridicule. They deserve to have their vote counted. And it doesn't matter if a Democrat or Republican or Moses himself designed the ballot, it was bordering on the illegal, under Florida law.
