Write-in candidates with long names

With Tom DeLay dropping out of the race and no Republican on the ballot, the GOP is going to have a really hard time retaining DeLay's district. Especially since their write-in candidate has the long name of "Shelley Sekula-Gibbs" and voters will have to enter it with a funny little tracking wheel.

Just to be clear, we all know this is wrong, right? A district being robbed of the opportunity to vote for the policies of the right and left on equal footing is bad. I blame Tom Delay's ego as much as... well I think Democrats have been thankfully absent from bringing about this turn of events, so fortunately we can only blame the idiocy of the Republican party and the election laws they have written.

But still, quite unfortunate.
