Cartoon Characters for Bush


The state judge who threw Ralph Nader off the Pennsylvania ballot declared:

I am compelled to emphasize that this signature-gathering process was the most deceitful and fraudulent exercise ever perpetrated upon this court….In reviewing signatures, it became apparent that in addition to signing names such as Mickey Mouse, Fred Flintstone, John Kerry and the ubiquitous Ralph Nader, there were thousands of names that were created at random and then randomly assigned either existent or nonexistent addresses by the circulators.

Question: Is the appearance of Fred Flintstone and Mickey Mouse evidence of 1) the Nader campaign's incompetence, 2) the Bush campaign's incompetence, 3) Democratic sabotage, or 4) unexpected support for Bush in Hollywood?
