This news from WI has made me physically sick.
My stomach feels like it is sitting on the floor and my cheeks are burning red and hot. I feel sick.

It was a pretty bad day anyway but Wisconsin has put me on the verge of tears.

1. yeah, I hear you. My crappy day got worse when I read this. I'm eating half a bag of cookies for
dinner, maybe that'll help.

2. a LOT of wine.....
followed by Rachel for sanity. But this ain't over yet......not by a long shot. Think what repubs would do if the shoe was on the other foot. That's what we should do...

3. Nevertheless, we have to be realistic about this.
I say that because every time the race is very close, it becomes very easy to steal by just adjusting a few numbers here or there or inventing them out of whole cloth. As long as the counting process is not open and verifiable, it is always going to be the case that we ask ourselves if the race is stolen, and they put in their candidate into office. Just ask George W. Bush.

5. What's going on?
I've been in school most of the day, did the recount declare the Republican the winner?

9. No. 7,000 net votes for him were found in the one county that kept
the republican in the race. If democrats don't challenge this action in the courts, we are lost.

13. That was my first thought.
If they can get away with this, then democracy is OVER.

14. This is what happens when the media and politicians . . .
say that vote counting fraud is paranoia and refuse to hold anyone accountable. No wonder GOP lady is smirking. She knows that she can get away with anything in this country. While the media chorus sings, "Move on. Don't be a sore loser."

21. You're not alone
I had already had a bad day with the scratch off lottery tickets, but this just ruined the night. Given the Repuke history, that's enough for me to begin with suspicion. Hang out at DU and maybe you'll feel better. :hug:

22. Very disappointing
Surprising, no, not with most voting systems in America.

But even if this turns out to be a total fraud, the litigation won't end before the damage to union rights is done.

Maybe that's what they were counting on all along.

Damn, why can't Democrats pull off shit like this?

23. Damnit. No time to be sick. Now is the time to fight. Now is the time to see if we Democrats
are willing to fight for justice. Al Gore wasnt in 2000 and Kerry wasnt in 2004. Both got down on their knees and conceded to the almighty CorpAmerica.

Damnit, when are Democrats going to fight?

25. It was absolutely predictable and not surprising at all.

Here's what I wrote Wednesday morning:

"Now she has to win the recount which may be harder.
I'll bet they will find a whole slew of new mystery votes."

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...


The GOP is simply playing by the same rules they always have.
Dont' expect it to ever change.
Cheating and lying always wins the day so they will keep doing it and keep winning.


Until you see high ranking Republicans locked up in real prisons you won't see any changes.
Ever.
