Yes, the zombie voting scheme to reassign electoral votes in swing states lives on, thanks to whacko Glenn Beck and our favorite Groundsweller Ken Blackwell. Blackwell wears a couple of hats since he's also known as the corrupt Secretary of State who took care of Ohio's voters in 2004.

Via RightWingWatch:

As a general rule, the candidate who receives the most votes in an election is declared the winner. But that would all change if the Family Research Council's Ken Blackwell gets his way and states start adopting a vote-rigging scheme that he is recommending whereby, in a presidential election, electoral votes would switch from winner-take-all allocations to a system where they were awarded according to congressional districts.

As a result of such a switch, candidates who lose the overall popular vote in a state could still end up receiving a majority of that state's electoral votes simply by virtue of winning the popular vote in more individual districts.

As Blackwell admitted several months ago, if this sort of system had been in place during the last election, Mitt Romney would have won the presidency despite the fact that he lost the overall popular vote by nearly 5 million votes.

Blackwell seems to have no compunction about cheating on presidential elections, and now he's got his favorite village idiot on his side along with crazy WallBuilder David Barton.

I have an idea! Perhaps these guys should figure out that they lose because their policies suck, so they should change the policies?

Just a thought.
