ht Talking Points Memo
Debate Porridge makes a scrappy call to the Ohio Board of Elections after a Daily Kos diary on voter purging. Election officials answer questions like “How do you vote if you’ve lost your home?” Diebold now peddling its wares under the name Premier is still the voting machine being relied upon to tally the count.
Meanwhile, Democrats file an injunction against the Michigan GOP for marshalling an effort to purge voters facing foreclosure.
Mark Crispin Miller says Republicans will use theocrat Sarah Palin to explain a McCain win. Even though the VP candidate is inspiring no “Christian surge” in registration. But that won’t be the first reason:
In fact, that claim will be the secondary “explanation” for McCain and Palin’s “win.” The first, of course, will be Obama’s race, and the sad “fact” that America’s just not ready to vote for a black man.” We will hear endlessly (as we have already) about “the Bradley effect,” and how it struck again, with millions of white folks who had openly approved Obama suddenly deciding, in the sanctum of the voting booth, to vote like Klansmen, thereby electing John McCain.”
You can see Mark Crispin Miller lecture on election fraud emphasizing the process and consequences of a compromised democracy and the implications for the 2008 election.
