The Media Matters crew grab audio from one of those Fox News radio shows that only makes news when something horrible gets broadcasted. In this case, it's morning show TV host Brian Kilmeade and ostensible daytime anchors Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum making fun of Desiline Victor:
MACCAULLUM: What's the big deal? She was happy. She waited on line, she was happy that she voted."
HEMMER: They held her up as a victim! What was she the victim of? Rashes on the bottom of her feet?
Ha, ha, rashes! Seriously, that's sociopathic, and anyone who takes five or six seconds to examine the issue learns that 1) voting lines were asymmetrically longer in black and Hispanic precincts than in white precincts, 2) at least 200,000 Floridians gave up on voting last year because the lines were too long.
I propose a catchall term. Another (superior) word for "line" is "queue." Thus:
Queuether (n): One who doubts that long voting lines cause problems for anybody and that there's any need to reform them.
