Moron the NYC CAN Ballot Initiative

It's curious that there has been no real discussion as to what happened to the NYC Ballot Initiative. Of course, there has, behind the scenes on the various email lists. But it's no real challenge to figure it out. The Troofers botched it on two levels:

1. They assumed that signatures raised in 2008 would count for the 2009 ballot. Which means what, class? That all the signatures raised in 2008 and 2009 are now invalid. Muahahahahahaha!

2. They assumed that they would get a high rate of non-rejected ballots. Apparently the idea that more than the normal number of Clark Kents and Lois Lanes would sign their ballot initiative as a gag never occurred to them.

3. Further, they paid their signature gatherers $1.00 per signature, not $1.00 per confirmed signature. Given that accurate voter registration information can be obtained, they should have been prepared for the high rejection rates.

It's just another cluster screw-up by the 9-11 Troof Movement. I was particularly amused by the sudden rush to endorse the ballot initiative by some of the "responsible" Truthers, like John Albanese, once it looked certain the initiative would make it on the ballot. He should have retained his skepticism of the idiots involved. Beclowned again, John, just like everybody who endorsed NYC-CAN.
