Reince, Dry, Repeat
In the past few weeks, the Rethuglican National Committee has been pushing a plan for Rethug-controlled statehouses in swing states to change the way their states award electoral college votes, from the current "winner-take-all" basis to one determined by how each Congressional district voted. RNC Chairman and rodent/human hybrid Reince "Prepuce" Priebus has been the leading culprit in coordinating this rigging of the game, which would give the Rethugs an electoral win even when they lose a state's popular vote.
Now, with the plan exposed for what it is, Rethug Governors and state legislators in four swing states (Virginia, Ohio, Florida and Michigan) have thrown cold water on the scheme, dooming it in their states...for now. Only Pennsylvania's and Wisconsin's Rethug leaders haven't come out strongly against...and Gov. Scott "Koch Head" Walker of Wisconsin is waffling. You have to wonder about the wisdom of playing games with the voting system if you're the party that just lost the last election big time. Even a right-wing standard bearer and transvaginal probe advocate like Virginia's Attorney General Ken "Cooch" Cuccinelli balked at the scam. That should tell you something.
Back to the drawing board, Prepuce.
