I wonder how many dead people voted for Obama...

This is odd news. We hear of dead people voting for corrupt politicians all the time, but how many times do you hear of electing dead people? And which way would dead politicians stand on healthcare? On one hand, they no longer need healthcare, but then again, they might love to have healthcare to bring them back.

Romney should take lessons from that guy. That guy was dead and still got in office, and Romney is alive and well and not President.

Simple...dead men can't flip-flop like Mittens did, unless they're hooked up to 40,000 volts.

Nobody actually read the article, did they? One Republican and one Democrat were voted in after they died.

These guys will probably do a better job than most live candidates.

I'll bet N. Carolina is still voting for Strom Thurmond.

Too bad Strom Thurmond was from South Carolina.

North Carolina? South Carolina? Whatever! Strom was from somewhere down South! From their priors, I'd expect a high number of Topix posters to be geographically-challenged!

Recognizing your problems is the first step? LOL I was cracking on non-Southern posters here. I lived in the SE States (FL and GA) for 7 1/2 years, so I know better. Most of y'all couldn't clog if your very lives depended on it!*grin* Southern expressions do crack me up! You have a goodn'!

There had to be at least one dead from each party elected, otherwise we would have be en called prejudiced toward the dead and the ACLU would have been called in.
