'That Is the Most Racist Piece of Machinery Since the SlaveCatcher 3000'

Said David Alan Grier at the end of Comedy Central's Chocolate News this week, after being shown a touch-screen voting machine which tries to talk him out of voting for Barack Obama, tells him that he's Muslim, and then registers the vote for John McCain anyway: "For all you Barack Obama supporters out there, if you see a machine like this, beat it like it stole something. Cause it almost did. Your vote."

Not that we'd ever advocate the way Grier resolves the problem. (Though we admit it was quite satisfying to watch. Like pornography for election integrity geeks. 2 mins...)
