I'm disappointed that the LA Times story doesn't include my favorite anecdote from the Franken/Coleman recount: the person who voted for "lizard people" http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2008/11/23/so_w...

Wow! I can't believe they threw that ballot out! There was only one clearly marked choice!

I often vote for LIZARD PEOPLE as a write-in if there's one race where I don't know anything about the people in it, because of that guy. (I didn't know he had come forward until I searched for that story today.)

Douglas Adams had something to say along these lines: http://wso.williams.edu/~rcarson/lizards.html

Well obviously.

If you don't vote for the Lizard People, the wrong Lizard Person might get in.
