http://www.7-eleven.com/7-election/

So, I'm a little early to pick up my daughter from school today and I decided to stop for a cup of coffee.  7-11 isn't GREAT coffee, but it is convenient.  I walk back to the coffee area and spy the display of "voting cups" and it's there where I discover the greatest fraud in the history of mankind.  There are NO Romney cups available!  None!  Not a single one!  There are two stacks of Obama cups, but not a single Romney one.  Pondering this electoral shenanigan, I concluded that my political friends would break in to a few groups upon hearing this critically important news.

My Republican friends will see obvious signs of voter suppression AND the fact that in the most liberal county in one of the bluest states in America, Mitt is so popular they can't keep his cup in stock.

My Democratic friends will see it as evidence that Mitt is so unpopular that it's not worth the effort to even stock his cup.  

My Ron Paul supporting friends will drink tea.

My bean-head friends (and me) will wonder why the "voting cups" are all large and wonder if there's some reason the major candidates don't demand to be placed on extra large coffee cups as they won't vote for anyone that drinks less coffee than that.

I took my pen out of my pocket and scrawled "Jon Huntsman" across my extra large coffee cup.  The clerk didn't seem to care.  Damn voter suppression...

OR all the Romney cups had already been taken leaving the Obama cups to sit there unused and uncounted?

That 7-11 near a Medicare office or a Bentley dealership? (John Elway joke).

ETA: Speaking of coffee, an important health tip: According to the top of the coffee can of Choc Full O' Nuts there are absolutely NO Nuts!. In case anyone was worried....

47% of the Romney cups weren't shipped. I don't know what happened to the remaining 53%.

Someone poked holes in the bottom of all the Romney cups. That crowd is big on the trickle down effect.

Yeah, they really hope you think it's coffee that's running down your back.... (Shogun homage).

I picked a cup of Obama coffee from 7-11 this afternoon.  Once I finished it, I flattened the cup and affixed it to the rear of an Obama-hating friend's car.  I wonder how long 'til he notices it?
