If It's Not Close, They Can't Cheat

So says the title of Hugh Hewitt's 2004 Election book (still relevant to this day!).

Now, Daily Kos is encouraging "cheating". I suppose all is fair in hate and war.

Meanwhile, Dennis Kucinich is calling for a recount.

Hugh is a rah-rah-Romney man. He makes the best case for Mitt, for anyone who wants to support a Mormon in the White House(?). Michael Medved supports John McCain, and has done me much "damage", influencing me into going softer on McCain. (Hugh is very anti-McCain, btw: "Great American. Lousy Senator. Terrible Republican.")

Both have been "political gurus" in my growth in politics. And somehow, I wind up not supporting McRomney in this Primary season.

They've taught me well.

Watching two savvy political pundits who are usually in alignment, break lances with one another over the best GOP candidate, is profoundly educational.

Michael Medved, btw, penned the best, most comprehensive article on why third parties don't work in American politics. I recommend everyone read it. Especially party purists.

I took a deep breath and clicked on the Daily Kos link. Ugh! Now I need a drink! They are absolutely disgusting! Sorry about all the exclamation marks but UGH!

Kucinich can call for a recount until the cows come home, but it won't help him. The guy needs to understand he's losing.

Now that you've been so well educated by Michael Medved and Hugh Hewitt, have you decided to come out of the closet and declare who you're backing? Or do you know? Just thought I'd ask. :)

I wonder if that photo of the woman isn't misleading.

I believe she is actually using the ballot to conceal some Cinnamon Buns she smuggled into the voting booth that she didn't want her husband to see.

No doubt the husband has complained for years about the wife getting too fat and she thought that this was the best place to eat them undisturbed.

I bet the pollworkers found some crumbs in their when they were putting away the booth.

See there, mike, now that's the kind of imaginative thought that could win you a caption contest.

gayle, you DO know who I am backing, right?

It's ok, if you forgot. But one of the links embedded in the post will lead you to my endorsement.

Medved's article is a jewel and he states his case well.

Another reason that third party candidates are quite ineffective comes from their support base. They are a bunch of loons!

If Kos is advocating cheating, then you know there is blood in the water in DNC land regarding the viability of their candidates.
