moore moore and an election method that might work for liberals

"Although he lost to mainstream hit flicks like "Shrek 2" and "Spider-Man 2" at the box office, Moore had the last laugh, taking advantage of the People's Choice Awards' new Internet voting system to enable "Fahrenheit" to trounce those flicks as favorite motion picture.

In year's past, People's Choice winners had been determined by the Gallup Organization, a national pollster. This year, for the first time, "the people" voted online — and Moore used his popular Web site to tell the film's fans that a vote for "Fahrenheit 9/11" was a vote against President Bush."

So now, Osama bin Laden's favorite director is the "People's Choice" as well and, between liberals, who cares if the election was rigged as long as the result is the correct one. It seems to be working in Washington state although, since they are not using new technology there, the liberals have had to resort to some of the old standards like having felons and dead people vote. As Moore has demonstrated, with Internet voting, an election can be readily rigged and there is no nasty evidence left around for bloggers to dig through.
