Miracle: Multiplication of the votes and fishy presidents

From the George WalkerOnWater Bush dept:

A small sample of vote miracles from the Cuyahoga County, Ohio, Board of Elections site, conveniently summarized here, along with much else:
  • Bay Village - 13,710 registered voters / 18,663 ballots cast
  • Beachwood - 9,943 registered voters / 13,939 ballots cast
  • Bedford - 9,942 registered voters / 14,465 ballots cast
  • Bedford Heights - 8,142 registered voters / 13,512 ballots cast
  • Brooklyn - 8,016 registered voters / 12,303 ballots cast

Meanwhile, from The Smoking Gun:

SEPTEMBER 12--North Carolina cops are searching for a guy who successfully passed a $200 bill bearing George W. Bush's portrait and a drawing of the White House complete with lawn signs reading "We like ice cream" and "USA deserves a tax cut." The phony Bush bill--a copy of which you'll find below--was presented to a cashier at a Food Lion in Roanoke Rapids on September 6 by an unidentified male who was seeking to pay for $150 in groceries. Remarkably, the cashier accepted the counterfeit note and gave the man $50 change.
I'll buy that for a dollar

Well, he does have a special relationship with "God, and "In God We Trust", after all.

If you had been in her place, and not accepted it, would you not perhaps have had a momentary question as to your possibly treasonous action in not accepting it ?

She may have, and thus may have decided to err on the side of caution ;-)

Jon, you are too kind. USians are so full of being queens for a day that they simply don't know stuff -
