john kerry, still a douchebag

John Kerry is very concerned about voting integrity, just not enough to make waves in the Senate:
as the greatest, wealthiest nation on earth, our citizens should never be forced to vote on old, unaccountable and non transparent voting machines from companies controlled by partisan activists.
Tomorrow, members of Congress will meet to certify the results of the 2004 presidential election. I will not be taking part in a formal protest of the Ohio Electors. Despite widespread reports of irregularities, questionable practices by some election officials and instances of lawful voters being denied the right to vote, our legal teams on the ground have found no evidence that would change the outcome of the election
[personal correspondence, info@johnkerry.com]

Of course, I realize that the protest will not change the results of the election either. But it seems that if Kerry was actually concerned, taking a step to actually force the houses of congress to discuss it might be more effective than counting on the Republicans to take care of it on their own. Because that worked so well last time.

there is an extensive post on dailykos discussing the various problems in ohio & why at least 1 senator needs to sign on to the protest.

at the same time, they acknowledge that kerry (who's currently in iraq, anyway) is better off not being there for this fight. all of the attention should be on the existing problems & the potential for correction by the next election. there's no doubt that even kerry's presence on the floor of the senate would be an opportunity by republicans to shift the focus.

conyers is the obvious point-man for the discussion in the house. be it byrd, boxer, obama, or some yet unconsidered dem, the loyal opposition can't let this go without a fight. i found the proof of voter suppression much more galling than any considerations of fraud or tampering.
has obama been sworn in?
i'm pretty sure it happened yesterday. they swore in all 34 at once.

strangely enough, i figured it out because frist mentioned it in the opening paragraph of the speech he gave on the senate floor... the one in which he lied about his past involvement in judicial filibusters.
that word is so offensive when i see it elsewhere!!!



i'm gonna mend my ways.

I think he wants to get as far away from the election as possible and he's not even thinking about the future cause he's not running.
I think he might still want to run again. At least that's what someone said on some sunday show. And obvs. they know everything.

I know that is going by their popularity, but it looks like Clinton, Dean, Bayh, and Edwards will run for the Democratic party... and Giuliani , McCain, Frist, and OMG Rick Santorum for the Republican party.

A wierdo! :o)

:o) I think Kerry is weird and lacks of integrity and character , reason why the dude lost the election.
I meant no harm by this comment. :o)

Cheers!
