Democrats believe they lost, so they aren't interested in thinking about fraud.

The tsunami makes an excellent distraction from problems with the electoral process. Never mind that the Democrats may not have lost as badly as reported. The very people who won big are, for the most part, controlling the electoral process via access, power and money.

Seems like people only become interested in potential problems with the electoral process a day or so before an election. They take a crash course in pollwatching. The definition of pollwatching for many is simply a glorified get-the-vote-out effort. Very little emphasis is given to things that have been discussed here.

There just aren't very activists like us out there. We think about Election Day EVERY day.
