what did you expect?

I hope the Presidential election next week is not close, no matter who wins. It has all the signs of a complete fiasco already.

Democrats in Florida already are pursuing nine election-related lawsuits, accusing state election officials of conspiring to disenfranchise minority voters. Led by the Florida Democratic Party, the People for the American Way, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the AFL-CIO, the lawsuits target, among others, Florida Secretary of State Glenda Hood, who was appointed by Republican Gov. Jeb Bush, President Bush's brother.

Pardon me while I puke.

First of all, "disenfranchisement" is not a real word. I believe that Jesse Jackson created it in one of his frequent fits of lunacy. Second, being unable to figure out a ballot is YOUR FAULT, not somebody else's. Third, look at who is behind the lawsuits--- liberals and unions.

That's the American Al-Qaeda today.


Amen brother! And I'm glad to see someone else out there knows that "disenfranchisement" is not a real word.

Damnit! The word is "disfranchisement" that "en" is wrong! It makes me want to go out and beat on someone.

I really hope that the polls are wrong and the election is a blow out. Otherwise we'll be living in a litigation nightmare for weeks... Nay, months.

What kills me is the Dems are crying "disenfranchisement" after spending the last several months engaged in an all out assault to "disenfranchise" Ralph Nader voters.

As we all know, when the Democrats lose, democracy is at risk.

I thought so too, but my Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary claims that "disenfranchise" has been around since 1664. It lists "disfranchise" as originating in the 15th century--about 200 years earlier.
