GAO to investigate long lines

for voting. The house minority committee on Government Reform, headed up by your good friend Henry Waxman, has pressed for the investigation.

I wonder why there were long lines. Let's see. A lot of people wanted to vote and there were (and always will be) only a limited number of voting booths. Quantity demanded exceeds quantity supplied - result is a line. One solution is to have no voting booth at all - oh, sh*t, maybe that's the plan. Imagine how fraud-free our votes would be then.

I hope Waxman will want to spend precious government resources investigating the long lines that will inevitably form for the next Star Wars movie, Rolling Stones concert, or NHL playoff game - oops, the latter may not be a big concern.
