8. "...that would prove, finally, that George W. Bush was not the true..."
Nope, it's the other way around. The powers-that-be who run elections have to prove that he was.

Most basic rule of democratic elections. Transparency.

Salon.com is a superficial gossip rag. "A hit parade of the most popular..." They're talking about themselves. THEY are a 'hit parade" of the "most popular," the most sellable, the least substantative, the most candyass, the least rigorous, the most unimportant, the shallowest, the least revolutionary, the most fluffy and the least useful claptrap of the Left. RFK Jr. has more intellectual strength and integrity in his little finger than can be found in all of salon.com. "Salon" is a good name for them--a place where the idle rich dabble in poetry and ideas.

Where salon.com will be, when Homeland Security comes to drag you away...
