The Kennedy family will just never accept reality, will they?
In the new issue of Rolling Stone, Robert F. Kennedy explores whether or not the 2004 election was stolen by George W. Bush. The verdict? What do you think?
Kennedy says Republicans prevented more than 350,000 voters — the overwhelming majority of them Democratic — from casting ballots or having their votes counted on election night.
Given that the election was decided by a mere 118,607, Kennedy theorizes that the alleged stolen votes would have been enough to have put John F. Kerry in the White House.
“The overwhelming majority of them Democratic”? If all of them weren’t Democrats, the Republicans are getting as stupid asÃ‚Â those Democrats who can’t seem to figure out how to vote for the right person.
Yes, we’re back to discussing the “disenfranchised voter”.
What exactly is aÃ‚Â ”disenfranchised voter,” and how can somebody like RFK Jr. know exactly how many of them there are, since the whole point of the thing is that they were denied the right to be counted in the first place?
I’m thinking that the “disenfranchised voter” to whom Kennedy refers is a 42-year-old man, perhaps living in his mother’s basement, angry at a world that has not given him a decent life, not to mention a girlfriend,Ã‚Â who can’t make it to the polls because mom’s using the car that day.
This voter is “disenfranchised” because there aren’t mobile voting units (which will be the next great proposal) to go around like ice cream trucks, to allow people, who don’t know what’s going on, to exercise a right they wouldn’t have if the majority of voters didn’t know what was going on Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the cusp of which we’re flirting with dangerously, and it’s spreading to states other than Florida and Ohio.
First Al Gore, then Jesse Jackson, and now Robert F. Kennedy and many more. Who would have ever thought that disenfranchisement would become a franchise?
