Either Phoenix has its act together or the reports of ridiculous lines are just exaggerated, but there was absolutely no line at my voting place. I even walked there!
There was some sort of foreign photographer there, and poor woman was getting yelled at by a poll worker for daring to take a picture of the precinct, which I guess she could only do from 75 feet away. I don’t think she understood what 75 feet was. I tried standing up for her, and asking the workers what the big deal was? CNN and every other station has people around various voting places, even inside the buildings. They said something about that being the “law”. McCain voted around the same time I did, at a place two miles from mine, so I guess that explains all the international media meandering the hood.
We then did the most American thing we could think of, and headed to Starbucks for free coffee.
Even better, I hear Krispy Kremes is also giving out free donuts!
What democracy? Do it for the free goodies!
