|Is that a guilty grin on Z-Man's handsome mug!?|
I wish I were a tech forensics geek with the ability to definitively prove who or what was to blame for this gross miscarriage of democracy. As with all all-electronic voting debacles, there's no way to trace what went wrong or who was disenfranchised (though, frankly, it looks like nearly everyone was cut out of the official count). Was it Z-Man's minders (and I know he has quite an organization of them) scrubbing the record clean every time a competitor jumped out too far ahead of him? Then again, I know for a fact that Aryx Quinn's people were pushing votes for Denny based on the fact that Aryx was Denny's tormentor in his nominated OTK. Was it the Aryx Quinn/Tristan Baldwin machine throwing the vote when stuffing the ballot box wasn't working?
There's something ominous about this object lesson in relying on electronic media to approximate a democratic process. I try not to even think about the implications of electronic voting machines in national elections for fear that I'll never sleep restfully a whole night again in my life. Of course the notoriously ill-supported and impersonal Google overlords that run Blogger and its in-house apps like the Blogger Poll widget are likely supremely uninvested in the outcome of the poll to determine who suffered the sexiest in an OTK backbreaker, as opposed to cronies of Presidential nominees who invest in electronic voting hardware and software, so the comparison is surely spurious.
Ah, hell. I'm not going to sleep restfully through a whole night now, at least until November 7. The fiasco of this Reader's Choice poll will haunt my dreams until President Obama is reelected. I'm hoping they're the sort of dreams where Tagg Romney gets forcibly stripped (yeah, those "undergarments," too), surprisingly found to be packing a rock hard bod and 8-inches of pipe, and then cracked across Cage Thunder's thigh while the masked master crushes his balls and makes him scream, "Bernie Sanders, make me your sex slave!"
However, I suspect my dreams will be much, much darker and more disturbing...
