Don't forget 2000
I like to keep reminding people of this because everyone I speak to keeps talking about this coming 2004 election as if it's somehow guaranteed to be any more legitimate than the previous one. This link, by the way, is to a government report from the US Commission on Civil Rights, a report which has been attacked by Jeb and Katharine; they want it off the site, or at least hushed up. Trickery and guile were used to force the election in 2000; trickery and guile will be used in this election. With the poll numbers so close, all it would take is a little very clever trickery, a little lovely guile.... or perhaps just electronic voting booths.
