From “Get Smart”–the famous secret agent shoe phone
I thought I was writing a way off-the-wall satire yesterday (see “More Democracy!”) when I invented a scheme to allow unlimited voting by phone in our next national elections. Dagnabbit, it was supposed to be preposterous!
I had, of course, forgotten that this had already been proposed three years ago, for West Virginia–absentee balloting via “smart” phone. (“Smart” for liberals means “deadly stupid” for everyone else.) I’ll have to do some research and find out if they actually did it, and if so, how it turned out.
But it sure looks like it’d be a hundred times more dishonest than “vote by mail.” And you’ve really got to sink pretty low to get more crooked than vote by mail.
