A place to rant about politics, the media, and especially the electorate. Much like alcohol, the electorate is both the cause of, and the solution to, all of America's problems.

Republicans could learn some things about democray from Tajikistan!

Same story, different melody. The republican agenda, which includes cheating-to-win, has been exposed. First there was a move to have the UN watch over the election. Of course the republicans would never go for it - it was just a way for the Democrats to (a) raise consciousness levels, and (b) stick it to the republicans. Now CNN tells us that a number of other countries have been kind enough to offer their advice on how to run a clean election.

While I appreciate the advice, its utility rests almost entirely on the misguided assumption that the republicans actually want a clean election. They don't. They can no longer win in the presence of a clean election. It's been demonstrated.

Republican voters: When a few people tell you that you're being a jackass, it's fine to chalk it up to traitorous Democrats (sure, why not?). But for fuck's sake - the entire fucking world is telling you that you're being a jackass. Prominent members of your own party are telling you. Crawford, TX newspapers are telling you. MBA professors are telling you. Your own damn eyes are telling you. It's pretty much unanimous. Grow up, bite the bullet, eat some crow, and get away from bush, the neocons, and the christian right.
