The real reason Kerry lost Ohio

by Josh K / November 5, 2004 2:04 AM PST

Newly released transcripts of cell phone conversations that took place all over Ohio shed new light on why John Kerry went down to a stunning defeat.

Begin Transcript:

Caller 1: Dude, where are you?

Caler 2: Duuuude, I'm on line waiting to VOTE BUSH OUT!

Caller 1: Man, still? How long is the line?

Caller 2: Dude, its gnarly. I may be here for hours. There are all of these moms wearing "I'm a security mom for Bush" T-Shirts. They are making this line way long.

Caller 1: That sucks dude, hey, any hot Moms?

Caller 2: Shut up man, you'll frost my buzz.

Caller 1: Anyway dude, Its too bad you're still doing your civic duty and s**t, because JoAnne just called, she just got a bag of righteous bud and was calling to see if we were coming over.

Caller 2: JoAnne? Really?

Caller 1: Yeah dude, and she asked about you specifically.

Caller 2: No s**t? But I may be here for hours. How long did it take you to vote today?

Caller 1: Man, I really wanted to, but I spent my gas money on weed and I got SOOOO BAKED this morning, it just wasn't happening.

Caller 2: DUDE, you mean you didn't vote? Are you crazy? Do you want to be drafted??

Caller 1: No worries mon. My cousin told me that when you get the draft letter, all you have to do is tell them you're gay, and they won't take you.

Caller 2: Gay? Really?

Caller 1: Yeah, its called ask and tell or some s**t like that.

Caller 2: well, then maybe I can make it over to JoAnne's.

Caller 1: Excellent! Hey, can you swing by and pick me up?

Caller 2: Sure.

Caller 1: And can you grab some beer, I kinda promised JoAnne we'd bring some.

Caller 2: No problem, I'll be there in a few.

And there you have it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
