9. Excellent clarity, as usual, PP.
I wondered the same thing after the 2004 theft, why it was so tempting for many to blame the democrats for loosing. Such a lie leaves such a bad taste....I cancelled my subscription to The Nation, for instance, after David Corn's vitriolic rants against those who suspected fraud.

The situation in California, is, as you say, likely to be completely out of control. While it is vitally important for us to continue to fight and raise awareness of the issue, this may all just have to run full circle until people will no longer stand for it.

I believe that the public is much more savvy and likely to be intolerant of this nonsense than Rove and others would like to have us believe. The lies are slowly being exposed, the mist is clearing. Once someone is branded as basically dishonest, as the Bush administration is ensuring for themselves, it is easy to see through everything that they do.

We are in it for the long haul. We must be both eternally vigilant and extremely patient.
