Lets go back to yesteryear when, for the first time in our countrys history, the US president was appointed by the Supreme Court. Star date 2000. As we all remember, things got a little dicey in Florida that year. Democrats, not ever wanting to look like sore losers, certainly werent going to get into fisticuffs with the Republicans over hanging chads. What do you think we are? Barbarians? So while dripping with class and good-sportsmanship they held the door for the self-proclaimed compassionate conservative and cleared his way to the White House.
I mean, its George W. Bush. At worst hes Eddie Haskall. Right? Good morning Mr. And Mrs. Cleaver. Fine day isnt it? But what caused the next four years to become the presidency from hell, was that Eddie Haskalls running mate was Norman Bates.
So, after four deadly years, just as the founders envisioned it, we get another chance to use our electoral process to make sure that roving bands of sociopaths arent allowed to destroy everything in their way for yet another four years.
The first thing we heard that night was that in certain districts exit polls showed Kerry had won. But somehow these districts ended up being called for Bush. One of the theories regarding why this happened was that people were too embarrassed to say they voted for Bush so they lied. Ha! Youve got to love that.
Then other notable irregularities began to surface. One district had a machine that tabulated a negative amount of votes. Another counted around 150,000 votes in a district that only had 30,000 people of voting age. People in predominately black districts having to wait in line for 9 hours. Coincidentally??? this all took place in Ohio. The state where the election commissioner was a contributor to the RNC and the manufacturer of the voting machines promised Bush hed bring home a winner.
John Kerry, the democratic candidate for president, an environmentalist, a decorated war veteran, a successful attorney, a respected member of the US senate, an anti-war activist with a billionaire wife conceded the election just 14 hours after the polls closed in California. GODDAM DEMOCRATS.
And just to add a little more despair to the nightmare, liberal internet journalists, not wanting to be seen as sore losers either, ridiculed everyone who had anything to say about the previous nights nefarious events.
Its just a lose-lose when your party throws in the towel before the count has even begun and your most left-leaning journalists bail just when you need them most. Youre investigative journalists for chrissakes. Go investigate something.
This is for Joan Brunwasser, who asked me to write something about the DVD Invisible Ballots. Im sorry Joan, but after watching the voting machine procurement process in PA, in my humble opinion, were beat. The states are buying up these electronic voting machines so fast youd think they were being paid by the government to do so. Oh wait. They are being paid by the government.
So I think that now the question is not How can we stop them from buying these infernal machines? Its - How do we stop them from using these machines to steal the next election?
I think a contingency plan is in order and heres my idea. Its really a no-brainer so I wont take a whole lot of credit for it.
LETS BEG OUR CANDIDATES NOT TO CONCEDE THE ELECTION UNTIL ALL OF THE RED FLAGS ARE LOWERED.
There. Not so difficult. Whats wrong with taking several weeks or however long it takes to shake everything out before we announce the final winner? It happens all the time in other countries. Heck, even Powerball reserves the right take as much time as they need before certifying their results.
