    Federal elections are always held on Saturday.
    Many Jews vote early or use postal votes because they observe Sabbath.
    This is not news.

I find his views and opinions abhorrent, and I don't care how many women he trots out to tell us "he's not really like that."

    Seriously - I would really like to know how he sounds good so far?

The election will be held on that day, if you meet one of the criteria in that massive long list to postal vote, do that! Grrr.

    Off topic, but why are the words "I'm not racist, but..." inevitably followed by either a racist joke or some kind of racially insensitive comment? It's hilarious, and it happens almost every time. Fantastic stuff.

    In most occasions I would agree but not in this occasion. Are you implying the PP is being racist? If you are that's a mighty strong statement and I think if you are you should be up front about it and explain why you feel that way so that an intelligent discussion can be had, rather than just shout "racist".

    Siiigh

    I debated pushing submit fearing a comment very like yours, but thought "surely people will identify that the comment I was referencing was displaying a slight level of racial insensitivity, rather than actually being racist (hence why I said OR) but alas, I was wrong.
