2. Well, that makes re-electing President Obama in 2012.....
that much easier. :) Blackwell is only good at stealing elections when he holds the Sec. of State office.

3. Superb idea...
If that happens perhaps Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins will switch parties.

4. The new face of the Republican party is the face of . . .
. . . election fraud. Will Katerine Harris be the co-chair?

15. The Repubs believe it will split the black vote. Good luck with that.
And, to add to your list, Sarah will be the 2012 nominee. Just perfect. That is, in fact, who they are.

5. Oh, yeah. They're THAT dumb. Put Sarah in there, too, on a mechanical bull in a bikini.

10. Can you honestly name any Republican that SHOULDN'T be in jail right now?
I'm sure there are a few, but I'd have to think about it for a while.

7. Does the RNC vote for their chair on Diebold machines?
If so, he's in.

9. Yes Republicans, please do.
Please put a face in charge of the RNC that accurately reflects what you stand for. The American people deserve to know the unvarnished truth.

13. I suggests that all of us work out butts off to get rid of the electronic voting machines,
because this dirty dog is a master at stealing elections. We still have some Blackwell bumper stickers in the hills of Ohio. Blackwell is a scary dude and you should not underestimate his power to screw with your world.

14. Blackwell has a serious case of stupid. I've seen him on talk shows
a few times and couldn't believe how stupid and inarticulate he is. I would love him to chair the RNC.

16. I'm sure he feels he's OWED something for stealing the 2004 election.
But he should have considered Katherine Harris's fate.

18. I guess they figure the only way they'll win elections from now on is to steal them.
So they called on the man who delivered Ohio to Bush in '04. Funny, I think a large reason Ohio went for Obama in '08 is because people here had had it with Blackwell and they voted NOT to make him governor (his attempts as SoS to get Strickland's name taken off the ballot so he could run unopposed failed) and they also voted to make an honest woman, Jennifer Brunner, his successor as SoS. Largely thanks to her and her bravery, we got much closer to a clean election.

They showed "How Ohio Pulled it Off" at my local cinema in Oxford, believe it or not; and so I experienced the pure joy of discovering Ken Blackwell - and heis REVOLTING.
