39. Very well said. An empty war chest in the hands of a reluctant
warrior. I agree with you that a challenge in Ohio and elsewhere, NM and FL in particular, would have caught some scoundrels red handed, particularly in Ohio. I'm afraid that Kerry was disheartened by the size of the popular vote loss and just threw in the towel.

The attitude of the Democrats is dispiriting. The problem starts at DNC with their weak minded response to Ohio (did they even read the Conyers Report) and their failure to say simply: no election produces a legitimate result when there are not paper ballots to count, not for recount purposes but as the means of determining the winner.

There are some signs of hope, in the media, and certainly in the community of relentless citizen atavists who will not go away. Why can't one major Democrat get it and just say, the election system has no legitimacy, it's a joke. People would love it. They have no sense of adventure, no urge to take a slight risk, well done, to make huge gains.
