I'm voting for Rich Whitey -- but then aren't we all?

Chicago election officials say crews will work overtime to reprogram thousands of electronic voting machines that mistakenly list a gubernatorial candidate's name as "Rich Whitey" instead of Rich Whitney.

Finally, some truth on the ballots. I'm tired of voting for "Fat Bloviator" or "Entitled Screw-up Offspring, Jr." Let's face it: we're all voting for "Rich Whitey" this election.

@eoe,
You might not be, but everyone else is:

Even in tough times, it's good to be a lawmaker: According to a report released this week by the Center for Responsive Politics, there are 237 millionaires serving in Congress, according to 2008 figures.

Oh, so we should all make an affirmative effort to vote for Rich (or Poor) Brownie?

What is your point?

The current demographics in America support a a greater number of white political victors than browns.

Are you arguing that "whites" should, unlike their brown brethern, resist this demographic and vote "brown" irrespective of qualifications?

Is there some sort of truing up that needs to be accomplished?

Is being a member of a "minority" sufficent qualification to achieve elected office? Does it trump the other possible qualifications of candidates from the majority?

"5" replies and less than 150 views.

"Popular?"

I don't think so.

@joefromchicago,
Ha! Finally, an honest politician! I'd almost have to vote for him just because he was truthful.

Isn't it a little early for you to be drunk-posting, Finn?

@Finn dAbuzz,
There's no need to give Finn minuses. He does that all by his very own self.
