ABC concocts "a bright note"

Remember how, two years ago, the media kept
chattering blithely that the races nationwide were

4) Voter Machine Problems.
a. On many ballots in heavily Democratic neighborhoods, Jim’s name is cut off. The ballots say: “James H. (Jim)” with no Webb.

c. Reports of voting machines in Isle of White that do not provide a clear image of the ballot, making voting a challenge.
