I heard about that silly Wisconsin voting rule that says that as long as someone vouches for you, you can vote. Maybe we could learn a thing or two about that blue finger dye being used in the Iraqi elections.

Sarah - I can hear the wailing from the ACLU already! How many snarky comments can you come up with for reasons why the ACLU would be against this?

I loved most of the posts, many are so wonderful but this one is light and deep at the same time:
From Iraq the Model:

"I walked forward to my station, cast my vote and then headed to the box, where I wanted to stand as long as I could, then I moved to mark my finger with ink, I dipped it deep as if I was poking the eyes of all the world's tyrants."

Toni, I'll get the ball rolling:

- Descriminatory against those with no arms
- Choice of blue dye clashes with style of citizens who are an "Autumn"
- Wouldn't want to deny vote to those unable to tell left hand from right
