Republican operatives who cheat, smear, suppress votes, etc. must have an extremely low opinion of themselves. No longer can they rely upon the real excellence of their candidates or any aspects of their platform beneficial to the public. They obviously don't believe they are good enough to win elections fairly. Thus they plot long-term more and more insidious ways to cheat the American public. Their philosophy is that the end justifies the means and they will stop at nothing to win. I've read that there is a cheating "computer guru" who does it "for the babies." His single-issue devotion to ending abortion rights justifies, in his mind, any method to achieve his end. Yes, a religious fanatic might have gotten us into the horrible mess we're in right now, by rigging the 2004 election. Let's all pray to whatever gods that be, and to any spirit of fairness that can prevail in what was once a democracy we could be proud of, that this election is won by the rightful winner, Barack Obama.
