Despite Democrats' Effort, Bush Carries Electoral College
It was over. You knew it. I knew it. And if us two know it than you can bet everyone else knew it too. But it wasn't official until today. When Congresswoman Stephanie Tubb-Jones succeeded in enlisting the help of California Senator Barbara Boxer, it helped to shine much needed light on all the horrible things that happened in Ohio on Election Day. I am convinced it wasn't fair, but I am not 100% sure that it was enough to tilt the election. Honestly, that is pretty irrelevant. Its not about overturning the election. Its about democracy. That's what the Republicans don't understand. This is not a Republican victory, and it sure as hell isn't a Democratic (big D) victory. Its a victory for Democracy, or so I hope that it is. We can't have shit like this happening in America. How can we have elections in Iraq when we haven't yet mastered them in our own country?
The vote against the Democrats' challenge was 267-31 in the House and 74-1 in the Senate. That is truly dissapointing I wish we had more lawmakers that did what was right.
