Oops! 'Osama' on ballot in Rensselaer County
by The Associated Press
Friday October 10, 2008, 3:40 PM
TROY, N.Y. -- Who is running for president? In an upstate New York county, hundreds of voters have been sent absentee ballots in which they could vote for "Barack Osama."

The absentee ballots sent to voters in Rensselaer County identified the two presidential candidates as "Barack Osama" and "John McCain." In the United States, the best-known person named Osama is Osama bin Laden, leader of the al-Qaida terrorist group.

Commissioners for the Rensselaer County Board of Elections say they regret the error but do not acknowledge in a statement exactly what the error is.

The best part of this article is how they had to explain who 'Osama' is... LOL

For thee, my Lord, for thee.

Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.

So we shall flow a river forth to Thee

And teeming with souls shall it ever be.

This isn't as bad as my state's voters screwing up the ballots in 2000.

"Barack Hussein Obama"

If that doesn't make your cringe I don't know what could.

C'mon, even Teddy Kennedy stumbled over BHO's name.

I've never called you nasty names. What makes you think I'd resort to that? Why does someone's middle name make you cringe? If there was a terrorist named Allen would that make me unfit to be president?

I don't have a problem with the name. I have a problem with people thinking its a problem (trying to spin it negativley, or using it to somehow lessen Obama's cred).

You personally, probably not. But I'm sure someone here will.

This isn't a Shakesperean play! (What is in a name? - Romeo & Julliet) Doesn't exactly sound like baseball and apple pie.

But of course he isn't muslim. He's christian. Yea, that's right. Christian. He won't side with muslims or be soft on islamic terrorists and their supporting states. No. I'm sure not.  wacko.gif

You didn't answer my question. If there was a dead terrorist named Allen, my middle name, would that make me unfit to be president?
