41. Where to start....
As to where I stand--I'm talking about the exit poll, not what really happened with the election. I am specifically discussing a question in the exit poll that ~3,000 respondants answered. I point out that the question is meaningless in addressing the question of fraud. It forwards no one's agenda to treat it as reality.

As to your fragile grip on reality--Bush never had high approval ratings here in California since his first term. We have the Governator, an Austrian neo faschist admirier of Hitler, union breaker, and this is where the progressive groundswell will come from? We are the home of Prop 13, Nixon, and Reagan--our progressivism came with LaFollette and the Southern Pacific Railroad's Octopus, and probably died when Warren went Supreme. It was a progressivism of sterilizing the unfit, excluding the Chinese, and putting quotas on the Japanese. You are more likely to see the next yoga movement or another Grand Theft Auto San Andreas in the next three years, as you are a political groundswell. We have secured the rights of minority whites for at least twenty years. Check what Richard Pombo's been up to with the western governors in San Diego, that'll be the next groundswell.

As to what is what--the DNC spells out what any sober clearing thinking progressive recognizes as the problem, it was not fraud, it was vote suppression. I've been saying it for a while, and I will say it again, the exit polls are no measure of voter suppression--it happened in Ohio, it was significant, it threw the election, it violated Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts, and it was probably illegal. Saying that may make me in your mind a Bushbot, but I seem to be mainstream within my party.

Suggest that I am a republican, my ass.
