Florida Pilot

A compendium of random thoughts from a former Washington Beltway insider who is now having a lot more fun flying small airplanes in Central Florida.

from the sore loser section -- here is one that needs a visit from the Brain Fairy

From the rantings at salon.com

"Mark Crispin Miller is a media critic, professor of communications at New York University, and author, most recently, of 'Cruel and Unusual: Bush/Cheney's New World Order.'"

"First of all, this election was definitely rigged. I have no doubt about it. It's a statistical impossibility that Bush got 8 million more votes than he got last time. In 2000, he got 15 million votes from right-wing Christians, and there are approximately 19 million of them in the country. They were eager to get the other 4 million. That was pretty much Karl Rove's strategy to get Bush elected. "

One has to assume here that Karl Rove also somehow bought off Kerry's 10,000 lawyers and who knows how many poll watchers. But it gets better...

"And that's not even talking about Florida, which is about as Democratic a state as Guatemala used to be."

Hmmm -- I wonder how long it has been since this guy was outside of his padded cell and actually in Florida? For that matter, when did Guatemala join the United States?

But the best is yet to come....

"I actually got invited to a Kerry fundraiser so I could talk to him about it. I raised the issue directly with him and with Teresa. Teresa was really indignant and really concerned, but Kerry just looked down at me -- he's about 9 feet tall -- and I could tell it just didn't register."

Yes, this explains it all -- Kerry took a dive in favor of Bush and even Teresa couldn't prevent it. I wonder if this guy discussed the Guatemala vote with her.
