Jeb!'s Banana Republic

by dj moonbat

History's worst monster, Jimmy Carter, has been a busy guy since he left office. When he hasn't been building houses for the needy, he manages to find time to oversee elections in god-forsaken places with no tradition of real democracy. You know, places like Florida. It would appear that the recommendations that Jimmy and Gerald Ford assembled after the 2000 vote fiasco have not been implemented. That, plus the ongoing attempts to purge blacks from the voter rolls, has carter worried:

"It is unconscionable to perpetuate fraudulent or biased electoral practices in any nation," he added.

"With reforms unlikely at this late stage of the election, perhaps the only recourse will be to focus maximum public scrutiny on the suspicious process in Florida."

The recent four-hurricane assault on Florida has created a messy situation, one where serious public scrutiny will be difficult--after all, it's not like they don't have lots of other things to worry about.

There are lots of things to worry about in the world these days, but I still have trouble finding anything scarier than the thought that Jeb! might be able to steal this election in broad daylight.
