There will never be a better opening for the Democrats to fix the electoral system and expose the sophisticated GOP vote suppression and propaganda program than now. The US Attorney scandal was never fully dealt with and it needs to be if we hope to have fair elections in the future.Amen to that.
The Republicans have a very well funded, professional operation, developed over years, to keep Democrats from voting and to brainwash local election officials. If the race isn't close enough to win it by vote suppression and intimidation, they will have laid the groundwork to call the legitimacy of the outcome into question to justify total obstruction of the mandate. (And they have the nerve to say that ACORN is destroying the fabric of democracy.)
One of the purposes of having political power is to use it to ensure your future political survival. It doesn't have to be underhanded or illegal -- indeed, in this case protecting the franchise protects the Democratic Party. If that weren't true, the conservatives wouldn't work so hard to keeping people from voting. The Democrats are suckers if they don't take the opportunity of an historic win, with no sour grapes involved, to clean this up. This meme about "voter fraud" is taking hold and if they don't put a stop to it right now they will regret it.
We have to remember that if nothing else, this majority must be used to roll back all the anti-Constitutional "unitary executive" garbage this country has been run by for the last 8 years.
The GOP Pretty Hate Machine must be dismantled for good.
