Ballot B.S. at T-minus 12 days and counting

Still no consensus on sending corrected absentee ballots Although the state Supreme Court has affirmed, for now, that Ralph Nader won't be on Pennsylvania's November ballot, still uncertain is whether the U.S. Department of Justice can force the state to send corrected absentee ballots to overseas voters, then extend the period during which those ballots can be tabulated.

Democrats, including Gov. Ed Rendell and his underlings, say new ballots shouldn't be sent. Republicans, including U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and the legal squad from the Justice Department, say they should.

Folks, you error on the side of inclusion. You put Nader on the ballot. Nobody should vote for him, in my humble opinion. But, you got to put him on the ballot. Otherwise, Pennsylvania told 50,000 of its citizens who signed the petitions that they are meaningless.
