Signs the Apocalypse Are Upon Us

Thousands Of Lawyers Prepare For Battle In Florida

Quote:
Democrats have trained more than 10,000 lawyers for action, if needed, in Florida and other swing states. An estimated 2,000 Democratic attorneys are expected to be working in the Sunshine State on election issues. Republicans have not released their numbers but have said it will be enough to counter any legal moves by the Democrats.
Add whatever Republican lawyers in place and

What's really sad is that it has come to this. I think it's pretty clear, though, that the left will not budge a single inch this time around, and will concede nothing.

And, unfortunately, further divide the nation. If you are implying that Gore gave up something by budging, I recall post election counts that supported the Bush victory in Florida.


The election is now about one side winning (and the $$$ that goes with it). It use to be as shining example of how power was transferred smoothly.

People supported the Bush victory, Bush had 85% approval rating after 9/11. That's alot of people united behind the president. He created the divide. He could have kept America united and he didn't. He divided us with his policies, not Gore, not Kerry. They were not president for the past four years. It was Bush.

Well then, Bush can be the bigger person and concede this time. Since he's a uniter, not a divider and all.

Remember, when a finger is pointed, there are three pointing back the other direction.

The division in this country is bigger than one person. And both sides play a role in it.

I spoke with somebody working on the Kerry campaign in Philly, who said there will be at least one lawyer present at every polling station in Philly every minute of the voting day next week. Another person I spoke to in San Francisco is on a team of lawyers providing pro bono research and legal support in case there is a major contention in any one of the battleground states. These people seem extremely well organized, I was actually rather surprised at how vast the network is beyond the 10,000+ in presence in the actual battleground states. The number is much higher if you count those extending support from the outside.

When Republicans do this, it is called voter intimidation (and toss in a race card as well). When the DNC does this, it is a "well organized" machine.

Gag me with a spoon. Someone needs to add an emoticon of a tiny violin.

Of course when Republicans do this it's called "voter intimidation". Their stated purpose is to keep people from voting. We can argue about whether that's a good thing or bad in specific cases, but either way, intimidation is the whole bloody point.

Say all you want, but you'll never see a Democrat trying to prevent people from voting. There's a reason why nobody says they're intimidating anyone.
