Radio Svoboda reports that Vader already holds a position as chairman of the Internet Party of Ukraine, first established in 2007, and has filed the necessary paperwork with the country's Central Election Commission to appear on the ballot in a special election to be held on May 25. He's also made the required and hefty financial deposit of 2.5 million Ukrainian hryvnia ($225,225), which suggests this is more than an irreverent prank.

What do you think about all of this? A full on prank?

Following the announcement of Obama's victory last night, one of his most outspoken critics Donald Trump had an epic public breakdown on Twitter, laying down all the cliches in the amateur's guide to internet punditry (paraphrased):

  • Ugh, Electoral College sucks.
  • Democracy is dead to me.
  • Guys, let's start a revolution.
  • This country sucks now.

In a conspicuous attempt to divert the attention, Trump subsequently removed some of his tweets and even made room for a self-promo hashtag (#TrumpCares) to boast about sending relief supplies to Hurricane-damaged areas in New York, but Salon has published screen captures of the highlights for your enragement (shown left).

You might have heard about New Jersey's last resort to e-mail voting for its state voters still struggling to recover from the damages of Hurricane Sandy. Well, as warned by some electoral scholars earlier this week, e-mail servers used for voting in two major counties of New Jersey crashed due to the heavy influx of traffic this morning, leading Essex County official Christopher Durkin to invite his 450,000 registered voters to send their ballots to his personal Hotmail e-mail address via Facebook. Further complicating the technical issue is the overwhelming number of requests for e-mail ballots received by county clerks' office, forcing the state to extend its voting deadline to Friday afternoon, 8 p.m. (ET).
