"Edward "Skippy" Ball, Assistant County Election Commissioner for Barboursville, West Virginia, a small village in eastern Cabell County, West Virginia has a "red face" today owing to sloppy ballot counting in his three precincts that have forced the US Supreme Court to suspend the overwhelming mandate Republican and Tea Party voters apparently won yesterday in the mid-term election.
"The mandate of the voters must be ignored whenever election irregularities occur," said that Chief Justice with the bad hair. "You'll remember, we ignored the voters twice giving two terms as President to George W. Bush."
Sarah Palin, author of the evening's Republican rampage, told reporters that "She understood the difficulties faced by local pollsters but would not challenge the court decision because, well, I wasn't running anyway."
