All scandal, all the time!

A Diebold (whose CEO was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president.") electronic voting machine glitch gave Bush about 3,000 votes in a county with only 600 registered voters. For all that complaining the Republicans did about vote totals exceeding voter registratoins in Democratic counties... well, i guess they were right weren't they? Just... probably not in the way they were implying.

The Daily Howler calls the crying conservative Christians on their bluff.

This may as well be a preview of my new book except for the last paragraph. The last paragraph is kinda silly. This one, on the other hand, is wrong and stupid. Democrats should improve the tax code- yes- but they should not try to beat the Republicans at their own game. Grover Norquist wants to, literally, asphyxiate our government. If he gets help from Democrats that's just fine with him, i'm sure. Remember, infinity -1 is still infinity. No matter how far the Democrats go on the tax issue it's still not going to be enough. Same with Social Security. Same with... well, you know. It's like our police policy: you do not try to reason with madmen or terrorists. The other two are not that bad, though.

But is "taxachussetts" really so bad?

Randomly, more Republican National Convention commentary. It's been a while, but it's important stuff.

I (still) need a President!

Osama tape: Real or fake?

Neiwert continues to be awesome.

Remember all those "The neo-cons outlined their plan to invade iraq even before Bush got into office" lines? Well, here's a bit of backup.
