Even In Victory, I'm Not Over It

When the stolen 2000 and 2004 Presidential elections were fresh in our minds, electoral irregularities seemed synonymous with the death of America and freedom. To me, anyway.
Well, now that the amazing, shutout victory of 2006 (swearing in today), has come and gone and left Karl Rove doing "The Math" on his fingers and toes in a frantic, spastic effort to find out what happened, the stolen election meme has receded.
Well, believe what you want about the conspiracies, nothing has changed in the wake of the Democrats' electoral success. The E-Voting system is broken and dangerously vulnerable to manipulation.
From the New York Times (h/t Russ):
A laboratory that has tested most of the nation’s electronic voting systems has been temporarily barred from approving new machines after federal officials found that it was not following its quality-control procedures and could not document that it was conducting all the required tests.By the way something, that Kerry guy can't win no matter what he does.
By the way something else, all week long we've had the myth of Gerald Ford shoved up our asses. The lie that Ford pardoned Bush to heal the country is total crap. Ford admitted as much to Weathervane Woodward. Healing the country would have been to put Nixon's ass on trial and then send his ass to jail. Instead, he got away with it and became a lovable curmudgeon periodically kissing America's ass on Larry King Live until he croaked. Now we got this group of Nixonite traitors because no one made an example of them. So, no, I won't be letting the elections or the WMD, or Katrina, or any of this other bullshit go anytime soon and neither should anyone else. That's not healing.
