Democratic Talking Points - Republicans Rig Elections
By now we all know that California Sec. of State McPherson has recertified Diebold's touchscreen voting machines for upcoming elections, a unilateral, possibly illegal move taken without public comment and without waiting for the results of Federal tests that were his reason for decertifying the machines in the first place.
Add to this the fact that Black Box Voting now has the goods on voting irregularities in Palm Beach County, Florida during the 2004 presidential election--Votes date-stamped from October (sometimes up to a month before the election); Votes date-stamped with the year 2010; 1400+ voting-machine resets and recalibrations, executed while the polls were open; Voting program accesses; Log tampering; And on and on...
So it seems we have another simple talking point to add to the Democrat's list for the midterms: Republicans rig elections.
The Democratic party needs to decide who's running party communications and stragety, then get the hell behind him or her. It seems they have Dean, Reid, Kennedy, Kerry, and yes, Lieberman all trying to grab the reins of the wagon and each trying to steer a different message.
I need some Advil.
Might I suggest the following, more credible mantras...
"Republicans killed Kennedy!"
"Republicans made Clinton lie!"
"Republicans made Sasha Cohen fall! Twice!"
I was just at B of A the other day using the ATM and noticed it was Diebold. Never noticed that before...although it WAS a new "touch screen." Brrrrrrr!
Hardcore Repubicans won't want to visit or revisit this story because they probably kind of like the way things have gone in 00 and 04. Why tinker with something that is already working quite nicely for them?
