For the last few months, a nutcase Republican has driven all around town in a truck plastered with every bit of crazy-ass nutjob propaganda. On a few occasions he has driven past the local Democratic headquarters, blowing the horn and altogether acted like an ass.

Needless to say, he's notorious around here for his vehicular abuse of freedom of speech. However, imagine my surprise to see this a-hole's truck featured on the local news! Now, wait for it, because it gets worse folks.

It turns out that this whackjob was AN ELECTION JUDGE!

Here's a quote from the Missoula Independent Blog:

The driver of this truck really, really hopes that "Comrade Obama," as one of the bumper-stickers reads, loses tonight.
The driver of the truck also happens to be a Flathead County election judge who parked his rig outside a polling place in Whitefish—the First Baptist Church on Highway 93—and in doing so probably violated state law.

A perturbed reader, Robert Horne, sent us these photos (more below) this afternoon, expressing outrage over the election judge's flagrant electioneering.

If you click the link to the story, you can see this truck in all its paranoid, obnoxious, redneck glory! Obviously, someone with zealous political views has no business being an election judge! The good news is, three out of the four candidates he 'advocated' lost! Perhaps we shouldn't complain, and hope he has a bright future in Republican party politics.

Have any of you guys encountered any {crap/stuff/bullshit/malarkey} like this on election day?

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
