View Full Version : Suckage: Whiney Disenfranchised Voters

I'm sorry... Unless you're from Florida, you cannot claim that you are being disenfranchised by what is going on in Florida... These idiots on the radio are driving me insane!
"Yeah Rush, I'm from Texas and I feel so disenfranchised because Gore is trying to steal the election in Florida."
Hello?!? You're vote counts in Texas. Whatever happens in Florida will not change the outcome of your state's election. You may be pissed about Gore... But by all means your life sucks because you're an idiot!
Now I know that all y'all at got|apex aren't this dumb, but arghhh it seems that this country is %95 idiots.
[ed: Spelling error - See... Even I fall into the %95!]

Yes, I've often said, we're "%95" idiots! :)
But really, I've been a staunch supporter of small-d democratic justice i.e., get an accurate count, in the non-Democrat sense (that's a capital-D, for those of you keeping score). But now that that's been accomplished, Gore's further attempts to keep this going reeks of idiocy. Whoever is advising Gore needs to be taken to the middle of a cow pasture and administered renots' paranoia serum. :) This has gone on for long enough, and to try and somehow wrangle a victory just doesn't make sense. The slim chance of pulling something out here is far outweighed by the damange the guy is doing to both his own party and the electoral process in general.
It could be argued that his challenges (and I don't actually know what they are yet) are ironing out the electoral process for 2002/4. Maybe so, but it doesn't have to be achieved through this endless campaign. Concede the election, let Georgie W stutter and blubber his way through 4 years, and then try and take it back in 2004. The economy's tanking anyway, why not use Clinton's recipe for success: come back and ride the business cycle, and sit pretty for 8 years.

Fortunately for the Dem's Gore has all but ruined any further political career he may have had... But I fear that he's dragging Lieberman down with him.
I agree, Gore will not pull out a victory... And the more I think about it, I think 4 years of having Colin Powell as sec. of state (VERY POWERFUL world-wide position) won't be too bad.
Gore is fighting cause he knows his career is finished with a loss, and he's not ready to retire to the speech circuits like Daddy Bush has. Do you think Gore has an exit stradegy yet?
