Do we live in Russia, or what?

Voters may be turned away from polls

I want to hear what everyone else thinks of this, before I make my points.

And let's keep it fairly civil.

Send a message via AIM to squeek.
I'm starting to regret getting this WWE shirt sewn into my skin...

I think they should worry about Obama shirts before the WWE...
That said, does it really suprize anyone that the Dems would try to stop people voting for a Rep?

Yep. Totally something only Democrats have done.

At least 10 states -- Delaware, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Vermont -- explicitly prohibit the wearing of pins, buttons, stickers, labels, or other "political insignia."

At last report, the Republican Party was petitioning the state to enforce a statewide ban on passive electioneering. The Democratic Party declined to join the effort.
Step off the horse, Mooga. It's a bit too high for you.

As far as my opinion on it... Who cares? Maybe singling out WWE shirts is a bit much... but is it that hard to wear something else? I can see the point in barring both sides from so called "passive electioneering" (which is what would have to happen), so it's a level playing field if it's in place or if it's not in place.
