Dear Sociopathic Dingleberries:
I apologize for not being in touch lately. I've been "off the reservation" for some time. As I am sure you are aware, fabricating fake controversies can be quite time-consuming. Rumor has it that Power Line actually got to today's topic a week ago.
Geez, I am slipping.
Anyhoo, Alert Reader and Noted Marquette Alumnus Denbo pointed me to this alarming report from the American Center for Voting Rights.
The press release linked above features this statement, summing up your disingenuity quite well (emphasis mine):
The ACVR Legislative Fund report, "Vote Fraud, Intimidation & Suppression In The 2004 Presidential Election," finds that while Democrats routinely accuse Republicans of voter intimidation and suppression, neither party has a clean record on the issue. The report finds that paid Democrat operatives were far more involved in voter intimidation and suppression activities than were their Republican counterparts during the 2004 presidential election. Examples include paid Democrat operatives charged with slashing tires on GOP get-out-the-vote vans in Milwaukee and an Ohio court order stopping Democrat operatives from calling voters telling them the wrong date for the election and faulty polling place information.
Yikes! Pretty unequivocal! You can read the whole report here.
Oh, I know: you're saying to yourselves that the ACVR is a partisan Republican activist group hiding behind the term "nopartisanan" to lend itself cred....
...until you read that the chairman of ACVR's board was at one time the Executive Director of the DNC who began his political career in Jimmy Carter's 1976 presidential campaign. That kinda defeats your popular tactic of assailing a detractor's cred rather than dealing with the detractor's charge.
I'm sure that you are also muttering frustratingly to yourselves something about how the report also details Republican acts of intimidation and suppression.
Well, ya' got me there.
Although those sorts of things have been going on for time immemorial; on both sides.
And the report also states that the shenanigans perpetrated by Republicans were far outstripped by those by Democrats.
Oh, and I can name no Republican that cried "SUPPRESSION! DISENFRANCHISEMENT!" before the polls even opened like a lot of you folks did.
And that doesn't even take into account all the acts of straight up ballot box stuffing that you crapweasels got away with.
As it turns out, the Milwaukee Jenitel has peeled another layer off the onion and discovered yet another innovative method you wankers used to artificially inflate Kerry's totals. You can read about it here, or wait until Power Line gets around to it next month.
All of this indicates to me that you folks should really find a good shrink. Projection is one of the most primitive defense mechanisms the brain employs - second only to denial. Perhaps a good psychiatrist could get into your primitive minds, root around for a while and get to the nub of your problem. Hell, maybe the shrink might even find a fresh idea while he's in there.
I wouldn't bet the farm on it though.
Yours in Seething White-Hot Spite,
