Stolen Election

RFK, Jr. wrote an article for Rolling Stone, extremely meticulously sourced, on how the election of 2004 was stolen by the GOP, especially in Ohio. Apart from the shenanigans exemplified by Ellen Connally, a gay-friendly minority judge who lost her election to the Ohio Supreme Court outperformed John Kerry in 12 counties despite getting 2/3 of a million votes less than Kerry statewide, there was this quote from Ohio Sec. of State cum election thief Kenneth Blackwell...
When ROLLING STONE confronted Blackwell about his overtly partisan attempts to subvert the election, he dismissed any such claim as ''silly on its face.'' Ohio, he insisted in a telephone interview, set a ''gold standard'' for electoral fairness.
This is the point where I go to Blackwell's office, pinch out a huge grogan, and call it gold.

If I call myself conservative while doing it, he'll even believe me.
