From the No-Shit-Sherlock Files

Juxtapose these two AP stories:

First (requires registration or viewing an ad) -

Louisiana voters decided Saturday whether to approve a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, one of up to 12 such measures on the ballot around the country this year.

It was expected to pass by an overwhelming margin, though court challenges are likely. The civil rights group Forum for Equality has promised legal action.

Then there's:

Many New Orleans voters were unable to cast ballots for hours Saturday on a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage because voting machines had not been delivered to polling places, a state official said.

At least 59 precincts did not have voting machines when polls opened at 6 a.m. because officials with New Orleans' clerk of court's office failed to meet drivers who tried to deliver the machines earlier that morning, said Frances Sims, the state director of elections.

That's one way to ensure the outcome you want... And you don't even need Diebold machines.
