"Our role was to try to keep people motivated about [the] election and then to undermine the other side's support by casting them as liars, cheaters, stealers, immoral—all of that." The brutal chicanery of Karl Rove

It's a split Senate.
Democrat Maria Cantwell has been confirmed as the winner of the close Washington Senate race, thus bringing the Senate count to an even 50-50 split. And for 17 days, the Democrats will have a majority of sorts.

Trial By Combat
- Since it seems that neither counting the votes nor suing in court is going settle this election. I suggest taking a more direct and final approach. A fight to the death with broadswords.

It turns out before the election, representatives introduced a bi-partisan bill in both the House (H.J. Res. 113
) and the Senate (S.J. Res. 56
) to amend the Constitution to replace the electoral college with the direct election of the President and Vice President. Contact your reps
to ask them to support the bills. If we're going to get electoral reform, it will be now.

The House: Encumbered by Incumbents
While the big prize is still up for grabs, plenty of pols will stroll into another four years of fun in DC. With a 97% rate of incumbent re-election, in spite of Michael Moore's
best efforts, is it time to separate the presidential and congressional polls, so that there's a decent debate over the direction of the legislative branch?

Where Are The Hollywood Conservative?
Does a liberal cabal of Hollywood executives destroy the careers of conservative performers? Or, is the conservative philosophy (opposed to change, antiquated morals...) just too boring for artists and performers?

Too stupid to be president.
The Ethical Spectacle
writes a condemnation of George Bush which is really a condemnation of the Republican Party which is really a condemnation of the American politcal system. What I wonder is, would the Democrats fare any better under the same magnifying glass?
