Evidence Mounts That The Vote Was Hacked
I don't know how to handle this. One stolen election was bad enough....

I hate to admit that the vote fraud possibility has moved beyond quaint theory and firmly into reality. Something is really going on, and where's the outrage or at least the curiousity of the mainstream press? The conservatives can scream all they want about the so called "liberal media", but it just doesn't hold up in the face of all the scandals that have disappeared as quickly as they've arrived for this administration. Al-Qaqqa would have persisted for weeks on end under Clinton's watch; Abu Ghraib would have brought down his presidency. Or how about the yellowcake lies? The leaking of Valerie Plame as a CIA agent, which is a federal crime? How about the simple fact that there just wasn't any WMD to begin with when we went to Iraq, and that it seems likely that they 'sexed up'--as the Brits would put it--the allegations all along? Then there's the possiblity that Bush was wired for the debates, or how about that drunk driving charge? Do you think the radio pundits or the heartland would have just glossed that over if it had been John Kerry? or do you think we might have seen a few adverts about how "If Kerry didn't have judgement enough to stay off the roads, how can you trust his judgement to lead this country?" And yet with Bush, it has always been a non-issue.
Moreover, why have baseless lies like the Swiftboat ads gone hugely public, while similarly claims like Bush having allegedly once paid for a girlfriend's abortion been buried?

As you can tell, I'm bitter, and starting to sound like a crackpot, but why are these scandals the elephant in the room that no one can see? Why does it feel more and more like we're slouching towards some Orwellian nightmare?

Serenity Now.
