Thugs Go Home!

This is great. A group of GOP staffers posed as homosexuals "from San Francisco" and went to a Florida polling place with signs that said things like "Support Gay Adoption-- Kerry-Edwards."

But the mostly black voters there weren't fooled. And when some people showed up with video cameras to capture the phony Democrats on tape, they quickly broke ranks and gave up. Ha!

However, this only earned a 5 on the Funny-Yet-Sad-O-Meter. High on funny, very low on sad.

UPDATE: Gee, what a surprise. They're using the same tactics in Michigan.

(AP) In a recording of a phone call played for The Associated Press, a young woman says: "When you vote this Tuesday remember to legalize gay marriage by supporting John Kerry. We need John Kerry in order to make gay marriage legal for our city. Gay marriage is a right we all want. It's a basic Democrat principle. It's time to move forward and be progressive. Without John Kerry, George Bush will stop gay marriage. That's why we need Kerry. So Tuesday, stand up for gay marriage by supporting John Kerry."
The calls began Sunday afternoon, according to Rodell Mollineau, spokesman for Kerry's Michigan campaign. The campaign said voters in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Flint and Pontiac received calls.
