Sarandon suggests outsourcing of US elections

OMG! LOL.... I have no idea what else to say to such nonsense. But then, Ms. Walls *is* the MSNBC gossip columnist. So take this tidbit, keep it in perspective, and use it as your laugh for the day. Meaning, who really cares, eh? Sarandon's a fun actress, and I've enjoyed most of her work as a comedian. But I'm sure glad she holds no position of power in politics.

Susan Sarandon wants the U.S. presidential elections to be monitored by outside interests. The “Bull Durham” star says that the 2004 vote was so fraudulent that we need international oversight — like troubled third-world countries do.

“I believe our next election should be monitored by international entities, just like it happened in Haiti and Iraq,” Sarandon told Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo, according to our translator. “The last one was an embarrassment. Everybody knew there was fraud, but nothing was done about it. In some states there were more votes than people able to vote.”

I would have to say that American election fraud has probably been in existence since voting itself. It was, perhaps, only in the last few elections that the losers were so utterly disgruntled as to try and find a way to overturn the results by close scrutiny.

However findings have shown that there is fraud on both sides of the aisle. Lots of dead people, felons, illegals are voting. Hummm... come to think of it, most of these are the fraud by the Dems, eh? Also, there was the concerted effort to block the military vote. DOH! Another Dem-dominated move. Oh my... perhaps Ms. Sarandon should just have the Dems overseen by her int'l buds, eh?

But if she's going back to that chad nonsense, then someone may need to shove under her nose the "mea culpa" version of "wow, Bush did win afterall" that appeared on pg 3,521 on the NYTs after the "media recount". Personally, I still hold with the notion that if you can't figure out how to totally punch out a chad, then you are too dang stupid to vote. Period.

However whatever dastardly voting deeds that transpire, there's no way I'd trust the int'l community to have anything to do with our elections. And shame on Sarandon for suggesting so.

Bonus BS for you here as well... Madonna is shopping for real estate in Israel. Yawn.
