Blackwell Libels Election Protection Attorney At Junket
searched in case this is old hat - couldn't see anything about it.

<snip>

Ohio's Republican Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell has publicly labeled as ''a complete idiot'' an Election Protection attorney he is attempting to have sanctioned. Blackwell made the derogatory personal attack outside a banquet-laden conference in Columbus being sponsored by Diebold, ES&S, Triad and other voting machine vendors.

Blackwell told the 56th annual winter conference of the Ohio Association of Election Officials that the 2004 vote in Ohio was the "gold standard" for national balloting. "We were shocked when people flew in and said the election could be stolen," he told an audience of several hundred election officials from around the state. "The election was not perfect, but it was perfectly inspiring."

1. perfectly inspiring? For the repukes and the possibility of future fraud
They are happy as can be about the election result. They pulled off the perfect crime and they know it.
Ohio is the gold standard for election fraud, they will use the various tools used across the state on a national basis in the next election to insure they can keep their regime in control.

6. Not at all suprising...
Again, in the words of Charlie Pierce, "And talking about boasting in the open - Ken Blackwells done everything but hold a press conference in a pirate suit."

7. I hope I'm around to see what happens when karma catches
up with him. What an angry, pitiful human being that dares to proclaim himself as a "Christian". Yeah, I can see Christ being real pleased with him.

8. I sense a little fear...
Blackwell's no fool... He knows he's first in line for the position of fall guy. I imagine his thoughts center around Big Al, his future bunkmate in federal prison.
