>>> Join us at the 700 for your Election Results drink-along where we will all slowly lose our minds before either regaining them or just falling into some real-deal bummed out stuff. Plus, political themed drinks! You really can’t beat it. >>> Or, drink along to the results while giving some money to Hurricane Sandy [...]
Because for every gym and high school auditorium that serves as a polling location, there is someone’s basement, a bar, and a barber shop.
Between mural-gate, the Democrat v. Republican battle this morning, and Fox doubling-down on the Black Panther story, we really couldn’t have asked for anything different. And bonus points to them for asking you to report voting “shenanigans” to them, instead of pointing you towards the proper authorities who can handle the situation. We need a [...]
It looks like the last step before they reveal the answer in one of those “Guess the Phillie” between-inning games at Citizens Bank Park.
Deadspin pulled together the tweets of some pro athletes to see who is supporting who in this election, and the outspoken Philly athlete vote favors Gov. Mitt Romney. Mittens has got the support of the Eagles’ Jason Babin, the Sixers’ Spencer Hawes, and the Flyers’ Tom Sesito. The two outspoken-athlete votes for our current President [...]
There’s a rumor flying around the interwebs today that photographing and Instagramming your vote will discount it. We couldn’t find any rule that says a photographed vote will be voided, but the Citizen Media Law Center tells us this: 25 Pa. Stat. § 3530 prohibits a voter from revealing a “ballot or the face of [...]
Songza, the streaming music service which caters playlists to you based on time of day, mood, and genre, released two playlists for Election Day today. Both are company-created playlists, featuring the favorite songs and artists of each candidate. You can listen to Romney’s playlist here, and Obama’s over here, and decide which one you like [...]
Update: “New Black Panther ” At Polls Is Actually Working The Polling Location, And There Is No Massive Conspiracy To Throw Out Republicans And Replace Them With Black PanthersTuesday, November 6th, 2012
According to an updated report by Fox News, the New Black Panther party member who was spotted at the polls by Victor Fiorillo this morning is actually working the polls as a “designated poll watcher.” Committee of Seventy also confirmed to Fox that as of yet, that have received no complaints about his presence at [...]
With all of the hubbub about Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, it’s understandable that some of the 3rd Party Candidates fall through the cracks. For example, we haven’t mentioned the Jill Stein/Cheri Honkala Green Party ticket since Honaka was announced at Stein’s running mate. Well, we did once, when Stein and Honkala were arrested for [...]
If You Are Using A Touchscreen Voting Machine, Don’t Leave The Booth Until You Make Sure Your Vote Is RightTuesday, November 6th, 2012
The video above, which is currently blowing up on Reddit, was recorded while in a voting booth in Perry County, in the Harrisburg area. The person who recorded the video said this, in the description on YouTube: I’m the guy who shot the video, hopefully this doesn’t get buried. You guys have questions, I have [...]
In case you missed our post about it yesterday, we’ll be at the 700 tonight, shouting at the television and playing loud rock music during the commercials. Join us, for there will also be the World Debut of a drink called “The Chappaquiddick,” and others. According to our barman, Tracy Stanton, it is “a Cape [...]
I couldn’t help but notice that Philly.com’s Voter Guide features various ads for Mitt Romney alongside their sorry excuse for non-partisan candidate information intended to help voters make their critical election decisions. Various ads for Mitt Romney are featured on every page of the guide. There are no ads for any other candidates. There shouldn’t [...]
The Wallflowers, who will (for better or worse) always be known as Bob Dylan’s son’s band, just released their first album in seven years, Glad All Over. Dylan took some of those last seven years to release a few well-received solo records, but is now back with the band that topped the charts and pulled [...]
I pulled a press pass for last night’s party, Bill was amazing! Uncle Eddie sounded like he knocked back a few before his speech. Sharp as ever! Seeing something around town of note? Cameraphone it to tips[at]philebrity[dot]com. [Submitted by: A Well Respected Man]
Almost immediately after we hit “Publish” on that last post below, this fun little nugget came across our desk: The Black Panthers are back. According to the Washington Times: A reporter for Philadelphia Magazine said he found a “uniformed member of the New Black Panther Party” Tuesday morning at the entrance to a polling place [...]
Spotted at my polling place in Kensington: Oh, Lordy. As they say. By the way, folks, keep those cameraphones ready at your polling places today, and do feel free to share what you see with us. For nothing sheds light upon the truth like an Instagram of two self-proclaimed Black Panthers standing around a poll, [...]
