Oh, No, It's Another Election

Well, here it comes again. I look forward to another election like it's a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Politics is like poison ivy- the more you scratch it, the more it itches. And, nothing spurs on blind animal rage like political debate. Are you ready for that family get-together that turns into a political food fight? Meanwhile, anyone running for office has their knee pads on, and their lips puckered. But, kissing the slugs isn't so bad when you know that the servant becomes the master one day after the election.

I know most liberals think their day in the sun is coming. But, before anyone starts rolling up their sleeves to get busy, there's one little thing that's screaming for attention, and that's voter fraud. It sure would be a drag to watch all the little people roll the big ball up the hill, only to see it roll back down on them YET AGAIN, because the elites screwed us with paperless voting machines, draconian voting requirements and bullying tactics in African-American voting precincts, and feigned incompetence. Twice around this track should be enough to have most Democratic voters highly suspicious of the process, but it remains to be seen if anyone of significance acts on those suspicions.

Diebold is certainly on the skids, but they may still be a big player in this election, and that spells trouble. The current lawsuits against Diebold probably won't have any bearing on this election. Their supposed rival, E,S&S is still around, too. Both companies are owned by brothers. Gee, what a coincidence. How is this possible? Why haven't they been rounded up in the dead of the night by, say, Senator Byrd's people, and fed to alligators? Two assholes named Bob and Todd have brought this country to it's knees, and will do it again if not deterred.

It's of particular interest what happens with the southern voting block. The potential for a huge swing is there, so the desperate Republicans need to be watched night and day. And remember, you can cut off Katherine Harris' head, but three more will pop up. She isn't that easily dispatched. Big Boss Jeb Bush can tell us that we have a failure to communicate, but he'll be pissing in the voters' face, and telling them it's raining, just like he always does. Someone had better hurry up and market a smart pill, or we'll ALL be wearing the blue dress.

The Zogby exit poll called a landslide for John Kerry. There's just no way possible for there to be that much deviation from the mean, and so it should be painfully obvious that the victors cheated their way into the White House. Any liberal voter who thinks otherwise should be kept from operating any heavy machinery. Election fraud is nothing new, anyway. In one amazing election here in San Francisco, ballot boxes were found floating in the bay by the Coast Guard. The excuse that came from Mayor Willie Brown's office was that the boxes were being washed on the docks, and the wind blew them into the bay. When I heard that, I was laughing, but laughing to keep from crying.

I wish people didn't have to wait to be told to go and storm City Hall, or take an axe to those goddamn voting machines. It's getting to the point where that's all that's left to us. I just don't see any civilised way of dismantling the fraud. But, hey, who are you going to vote for?

As a late addendum to this rant, I submit this news story for your perusal. "It's unclear what caused him to become upset." Is it, now?

I searched for a follow on "why" he lost it. (As if we couldn't have guessed.) He should be given a medal for doing his civic duty. Ohio. What a clusterfuck.
Cleveland Polling Station Delays Statewide Election Results.
Diebold. I foresee more "outbursts" of this nature as people realize they're being denied their right to vote and have it count.
I always vote absentee but I don't know who counts them...a machine?
