Someone please explain to me why we had but a single Senator support the contestation of the Ohio vote?? As I was watching Barack Obama, Christopher Dodd, and other Democrat Senators give speeches about the importance of protecting the right to vote, and further saying that this vote protest was not about overturning the election results, but rather the PRINCIPLE of guaranteeing that every person who had the right to vote, and wanted to vote, should have been able to vote freely and fairly...as I was watching htis, for a brief moment I thought "They did it! God damn it, they finally showed some guts!"
Then they took a vote on whether they would officially contest the votes. One single Senator had the guts to support this. And for the life of me, I don't understand why. It seems to me like we've just been set up...for four years from now. We've allowed this bullshit two elections in a row, with barely a lick of resistance from our elected officials.
Patty and Maria are done as far as I'm concerned. I swear I'm either going left or going North.
