Have you seen the sample Nebraska ballot on the “Retain/Repeal the Death Penalty” question? Here it is:
Heck it’s right there in front of me and I STILL get confused.
Read through it…”Retain”…OK…”Repeal”…wait, what’s that “Purpose”?…and…fill an oval…wait which one was which?
It’s a little late now, but there is an argument that they should have put the ovals right next to the explanation.
Because you can go through both of those, but then read the next explanation of the bill and it’s STILL confusing.
Maybe this is more of a Y2K type problem (i.e. lots of talk, then not much) but it seems like there had to have been a better way to do this.
Early Halloween gift…
The Don Bacon campaign is taking a Democrat Brad Ashford’s positions just a step further, by putting up the “Flip-Flop Brad Ashford” web page.
The page features Ashford’s flips and flops on…Gitmo, ObamaCare, Abortion, the Death Penalty, and of course, his own party affiliation:
FLIP FLOP ALERT: Brad’s Timeline of party hopping
Republican Brad Ashford: 1971 – 1983
Democrat Brad Ashford: 1984 – 1988
Republican Brad Ashford: 1988 – 2011
Independent Brad Ashford: 2011 – 2013
Democrat Brad Ashford: 2013 – Present
But credit to where credit is due at the Bacon camp: There is also a link to BUY the Brad Ashford Flip-Flop costume.
No doubt the Bacon campaign office will issue you an Ashford mask if you need it.
I will be Live-Tweeting the Vice Presidential debate tonight, between these two guys:
No seriously, it’s between THESE two guys.
Well, in any case, there are sure to be some sort of theatrics involved. Hopefully someone will claim that the other isn’t Jack Kennedy or Jack Kevorkian or Jack Kerouac…hey! That ‘minds me!
YOU should take the Leavenworth St. (Vice) Presidential Debate Quiz! Sure it’s the same quiz (if you haven’t already taken it) but with lots of tasty Veep goodness involved!
Click here and try your darndest!
The. Best. Way.
So HOW do you follow Leavenworth St. on the Twitter?
Why you click HERE, and FOLLOW @LeavenworthSt.
And if you are looking for a mass of debate analysts, try the Leavenworth St. Twitter list of Debate Pundits. This is a group of local and national pundits who should be tweeting along through the night.
They in turn will be re-Tweeting others, and the whole thing is absolutely the best way to actively watch the debate. Hands down.
And then when you’re done, jump on over to the Facebook and Like Leavenworth St. so you can get notified about every new post that goes up.
