by Greg Palast (American hero)

I know you don't want to hear it. You can't face one more hung chad. But I don't have a choice. As a journalist examining that messy sausage called American democracy, it's my job to tell you who got the most votes in the deciding states. Tuesday, in Ohio and New Mexico, it was John Kerry.


In other words, Americans REJECTED Bush, his values and a theocratic state. THAT is the story.

What does Greg personally feel about all this? His note at the end of the article: I used to write a column for the Guardian papers in London. Several friends have asked me if I will again leave the country. In light of the failure—a second time—to count all the votes, that won't be necessary. My country has left me.

Even if Kerry did pull out razor thin margins in some states, Bush seems to have won by millions in the popular vote count.

Palast is great, and Bush is a sack of shit, but he did convince a hell of a lot of voters to believe his fantasy-based program of other-destruction.
Dude, maybe you haven't noticed, but I'm telling you the vote was RIGGED.
the CAMPAIGN was rigged.
Ask Ralph Nader.
