This ain't The Onion.

snips:.....Former U.S. president George W. Bush was confused by the instructions on his electronic voting machine

Bush argued with poll workers for several minutes afterwards in a effort to redo his vote, but in accordance with state law they ultimately denied his request.

Suzanna Everett, a politics correspondent for the Waco Times witnessed the entire ordeal and crafted a cunning scheme to make it public.


Barred by ethics rules from using knowledge gained within a polling station, Everett waited for Bush to leave the facility and ambushed him with a trick question designed to fool him into revealing the news himself:

"Mr. President Fox News is reporting that you've accidentally voted for Barack Obama. Would you care to comment?"

Thinking that his mistake had already been found out, Bush sought to minimize the damage:

"Yes unfortunately because of the incompetence of the folks who designed the ballot, my vote counted for the other guy," Bush responded. He then attempted to explain exactly how the mishap occurred:

"First of all, everything was very mismaladjusted on the screen. You shouldn't put the senators and the congresspeople and the presidents all jumbled together like that. It's too crowded. Just confuses folks."

Cute, even though satire.

Otoh, if it were true, I have to admit I'd be unhappy with someone using their knowledge inside the polling place against someone in any way.

I know, I'm stuffy. But voting is pretty sacred to me.

P.S. Yes, I still laughed at the story.

also, funny but not true from what I've seen. However, good laugh for mostof us!

LOL!
This poor guy was actually president of the United States of America for 8 long, agonizing years. My god. It's really true. ANYBODY can grow up to be president. That's really scary.

Sigh.
So NOW I read that this isn't true.
The fact that I could believe it's true, speaks volumes about poor old GWB.

The only man who could be the basis for a desk calendar with a different stupid quotation for every day of the year.

Not even Yogi Berra could do that.

Right. Here is a guy who should NOT be misunderestimated.

If we all just pay attention, we'll get the underestimation right.
