Stop the presses! The Palm Beach Post reports that:

An alleged voting violation by GOP pundit and bestselling author Ann Coulter will be investigated by Palm Beach County State Attorney Barry Krischer's office.
Arthur Anderson, Palm Beach County's elections supervisor, said today that he would refer the accusation that Coulter voted knowingly in the wrong precinct Feb. 7 in a town of Palm Beach election to the state attorney "within 48 hours."
Anderson said that Coulter, since the allegations surfaced, made "efforts to distract and divert focus on the process regarding this complaint."
"I did express my frustration to the state attorney in a recent meeting and warned him I may need his services," Anderson said.
Ironically, Anderson said that Coulter's voting rights would not be rescinded for next week's election.

Ok, so that's not "ironic," just like rain on your wedding day or a black fly in your Chardonnay or a free ride when you've already paid aren't ironic either. These are all merely unfortunate (or perhaps, in the case of Coulter, bureaucratic.

Misuse (or abuse) of exclamation points in blog posts is, however, perfectly acceptable. Dontcha think?
