It was...um...STATIC ELECTRICITY! Yeah - that's the ticket - static 
electricity. It's well known for causing extra votes! You can't be too 
careful around static electricity. Yessiree, Bob. Static electricity. 
Yep. That's what it was alright.

And you know, static electricity ALWAYS adds Republican votes. Always. 
No-one knows why, but it's a well-known fact. Any scientist'll tell you 

Uh huh. Static electricity.
