Smoke 'em if you got em.
In a reprise of Milwaukee's famous "smokes for votes" scam from the 2000 election, a hamburger chain in the city has decided to give out free hamburgers to those who vote and get the "I Voted" sticker as proof.
I liked the idea of handing out a pack of cancer sticks to voters that the Wisconsin Democratic Party came up with during the runup to the Bush-Gore contest. It seemed much more appropriate to the efforts of an urban political machine.
