Stupid voter stories

I know, I know the results are one big stupid voter story, but this one takes the cake. The headline says it all.
Intent on voting, Pa. woman, 95, calls 911

So 95 year old women who call 911 to get a ride to the polls are stupid?

And if they happen to soil themselves they are what, childish? Come on. Affiliation to political parties aside, you don't have to be nasty about this.

It isn't being nasty to believe emergency services should be reserved for . . . emergencies.

Does she call 911 when she needs groceries? I hope not.
Does she call 911 when her cats need grooming? I hope not.

Not much difference between the last two examples and the one she made the news for doing.

I guess an emergency is a matter of perspective. The elderly generally live in an isolated world. Do they know about the resources afforded to them to get out and vote? Probably not. I don't know many elderly people who read blogs or visit campaign sites.

Granted, it may seem odd that someone would call 911 for such a request, but to trivialize the plight of a 95 year old woman is a bit tasteless.

Kevin,

We may just have to agree to disagree on this one. If she lives on her own she must have someone helping her with regular stuff like groceries. I would hope whoever helps her with regular stuff could have helped her vote. If not it's a shame but not a reason to call 911.

I know in this area the local seniors center offers rides to seniors for various reasons including to the polling place on election day.

Bill, Stories like this make me wish for competency test. Why is it that Democrats court the least intelligent voters, could it be they arethe only ones who can swallow their nonsense.
