HUMAN RIGHTS UPDATE

Deceased Albanians still eligible to vote

(Thanks to Ross Marks, who notes that this has long been official policy in Florida)

And yes, "Deceased Albanians" would be a good name for a rock band.

hey - deceased albanians been voting in albany new york for YEARS!

Official: I'm sorry, sir, but your voter registration is expired.

Citizen: That's OK. So am I.

Well, if I'm dead, do I still have to pay taxes?

I'm an Alnanian, I think Jessica Alba is hot.

I guess that's what they call stiff opposition.

Dang, where's a b when you need one?

I'm centering my campaign on the "free bran for everyone" position.

bran or brain??

♮ ♪ Prop her up beside the poll booth when she dies,
Well, she wants to go to caucus, but there's formaldehyde,
Filling up the veins of Gran', put a ballot in her hand,
Prop her up beside the poll booth when she dies. ♫

Jim Belushi is rolling over in his grave.

Meh. they got nothing on Minnesota. We do the same thing. How else would Jesse Ventura and Al Franken ever get a shot at office?

In the US we elect dead people to office, so why shouldn't the dead have a chance to vote, too?

candidates will soon target this neglected voting bloc:

"are you dead tired of all my opponent's running around, flaunting his active metabolism, promising everything for the decomposition-impaired?

well then, vote for me!

while i am still breathing myself, i have deep roots
among the corpse-american community: almost all my ancestors are dead, and sometimes i don't move for days on end.

so, if approve of:
1) more space for cemeteries
2) a voice in the legislature
3) assurance your rights are protected whilst you rot away in peace.

vote for me! owing to recent court rulings i am barred from kissing the deceased by i am with you in spirit!"

Albanian political bumper stickers:

Cadaver It Takes
Deceased The One
Death, We Can!

And Belated Happy Birthday to Insomniac!

Horace,

In the US we elect dead people to office, so why shouldn't the dead have a chance to vote, too?
They have been in Chicago for decades. Why should they have all the fun?

Chicago is in Albania ?

Obligatory: Chicago elections and all that.
