TROY, New York - Who is running for president? In an upstate New York county, hundreds of voters have been sent absentee ballots in which they could vote for “Barack Osama.”

The absentee ballots sent to voters in Rensselaer County identified the two presidential candidates as “Barack Osama” and “John McCain.” In the United States, the best-known individual named Osama is Osama bin Laden, leader of the al Qaida terrorist group behind the 2001 attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center in New York City.

The typographical terror error was first reported by the Times Union of Albany.

The elections office faxed a statement in which the two commissioners, Democrat Edward McDonough and Republican Larry Bugbee, said they regret the error but never acknowledge what the error was.

“It’s human error, it’s very unfortunate, it’s an embarrassment to our office, obviously,” McDonough said in a later phone interview. “We wish we could turn back the clock, but we can’t.”

When they discovered the mistake, officials shredded the remaining “Osama” ballots and mailed correct versions to the roughly 300 people who had already received them.

McDonough said the “Osama” mistake was made in only one of the 13 ballot versions mailed throughout the county, located east of the state capital of Albany.

Voters who received both versions will be allowed to send in either one and have it counted, McDonough said.

Obama spokesman Blake Zeff said the campaign is “glad officials are working to correct this error and we assume it won’t happen again.”

I hate these two presedential candidates as much as the next person but, seriously, I fucking want to strangle these idiots who are throwing childish tantrums and high school insults at him.

Why? Because it's the fucking lowest thing you can do especially in a political election, I don't understand why people are putting up with this kind of bullshit. People who do this kind of thing are like the idiot trolls on this forum all they do is resort to personal insults when they can't get their own way with people.

Exactly what I thought. When I read this I immediately looked at my keyboard, and realised you would either had to have done this on purpose, or you were so drunk you're lucky to have been able to type at all.

only 2 on the absentee ballots there perhaps?

not all the independants have enough signatures in each state to be on all the ballots.

that's because the other "candidates" have no chance of getting elected so it's as if there are only two.

exactly...he hasnt led the "black life" ...grown up in the "hood"....he's as white bread as they come if you go by his raisings. The closest he came to the hood was watching the Good Times.

Viscious because the only thing black about him is his skin color, yet black people are being conned into voting for him for that reason only.
