Millions of Minnesotans voted on November 4, 2008.
The survivors of the U.S. Senate race called the recount
%#$%& drawn out. They lived only to face a new
nightmare, the war against the Machines
in a state senate committee hearing room....
Update: Tild has a different take on the Termindaytor. [end update]
Senator Day's recent defense of the ability of machines to read a voter's marks on a ballot, versus the citizen's right to have his or her vote counted in an election, was caught in an alarming video posted at the Uptake, embeded below.
With a group of friends, we speculated over the weekend about the source of Day's spirited partisanship on behalf of voting machines. Soon, we concluded that Day himself might indeed be a machine. After all, we'd seen this sort of machination in theaters and on television.
The group's next line of inquiry was identifying which sort of machine. Since the Cyclons* Cylons are frequently smoking hot babes, we quickly ruled out that android culture. Nor could Day be a Decepticon, regardless of his dreams of bringing NASCAR to the state, since his eyes aren't red.
No, in siding with the voting machines, Senator Day revealed himself as a terminator, and not one of the nice ones played by that handsome Governor Schwarzenegger, either. Our artistically inclined friend Tild created the photoshopped image which exposes the allegiances wired beneath Senator Day's skin.
The Uptake clip that started it all:
*A kind police officer gave us a verbal warning about the correct spelling of this word. We are grateful for his humane professionalism, since fines in Minnesota's Spelling Court have risened dramatically in the age of no new taxes.
