Re: 1756: "I'm With Her"

Also, am I the only one who notices how subtly insulting this comic is? "If you're having trouble voting, here's a phone number?" I mean seriously--what kind of half-way informed voter can claim that they are having trouble voting? The kind who is being intimidated by outsiders trying to ...
