There is no such thing as a free and fair democracy. Sometimes it's difficult to remain rational. Combined with the Ohio voter registration @!$&*^%! debacle, now we have Democratic registrations getting trashed. It's enough to make a person want to take up arms. I don't have the time to go into it, so just read the original story here. These three blogs didn't do much more than say something brief about the story, but the comment threads (where available) will give you an idea of people's reactions.
Metafilter were the first to pick it up (that I saw).
Electablog now has something on it.
As does Daily Kos

So they're all "left" blogs. That doesn't invalidate the fact this took place. I've emailed Instapundit, as a "right" leaning blogger, asking him to comment on it.

Could this not all be avoided by not requiring people to indicate their party preference on registration forms? Why should anyone know who I'm going to vote for before I do so? Just put 'undecided' or 'independent', or, here's a thought, 'None of your bloody business'.
