Condolences to Obama

As has been bandied about the blogosphere and the news media within the past few hours, Barack Hussein Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Payne "Toot" Dunham, passed away today, the day before Election Day, at the age of 86.

I join everyone who, regardless of political affiliation, is extending their sincere and heartfelt condolences to Mr. Obama. I, too, was fortunate enough to have a grandmother who survived well into her years, and her loss was profoundly felt by the entire family. Toot's family, no doubt, feels a similar loss.

Having said that, I will suggest that given the lax adherence to statute and procedure exhibited by those involved in her grandson's campaign, it would be most appropriate for someone to check out and ensure that Toot's vote is not counted on a postmortem basis.
