Early Voting Snafus Reported 

After Friday, July 14, the first day of Early Voting for the August 3rd general election/state-and-federal primary, all was not well here in River City. Various complaints were vented about the venues, about the new machines, about the process, or about all of the above. One candidate's report on the problems begins this way: "Yesterday morning at Miss Blvd (where I was), there were 2 machines down and a line out the door. Heard there were at least 30 machines down across the county. Heard from my field guy that at one poll, folks were being turned away because all the machines were down...."

  • Nikki is a Hottie, But Marsha's Sizzling

    “Nicole” Tinker (that’s “Nikki Tinker” to followers of our own 9th congressional District’s crowded Democratic primary race) is one of 10 political women nominated for www.politics1.com’s annual online poll to identify “the hottest woman in US politics.” Also featured in the list is the 7th District’s Republican incumbent, Marsha Blackburn, who also represents part of Memphis. Which would make Memphis the home of two of politics' hottest babes.

    Other nominees include Louisiana Senator Mary Laundrieu, Representative Stephanie Herseth of South Dakota, and California congresswoman Mary Bono (yep, Sonny’s widow).

    To cast your vote for one of the hometown gals, go here.

    Update: Marsha Blackburn has surged into second place with 21.5 percent of the vote, trailing only the pulchritudinous Herseth. Tinker, on the other hand, is in the bottom three.
