Oh, my darlings, I know this will be like learning there is no Santa Claus, and the Tooth Fairy is actually your dysfunctional parents slipping their spare change under your pillow whilst you’re sacked out in Dreamland.
But I must.
Rarely am I invited to a party for which I literally have nothing to wear, but this party is it.
I mean, the robe is scrumptious – if, finally, an embarrassingly-self-important muumuu better reworked as upholstery fabric for the settee in a Confessional booth.
But this ISN’T a confessional booth, pumpkin. Nor, tragically, is it a childhood fairy tale. Though it is indeed Grimm.
It’s the 2008 American Presidential election and I must quickly awaken you because the house is afire and we must flee to safety. Facts, truths and rationality, my children.
Santa and the Tooth Fairy be damned.
My very very dear, very very old friend AMY GOODWIN lays it all out for you, in fabulously frightening detail.
Of course, her article requires actual READING. That, in a state where 25% of the population struggles to finish “My Pet Goat.”
Her piece not only details, factually, the theft of the 2000 and 2004 elections, the methods, names and tactics . . . but the underlying motives BEHIND those thefts.
Which turn out to be RELIGIONISTS, my Blogger Babies. Amy spells out the names, affiliations and networks, thanks to voluminous research.
Moreover, she documents the tactics of intimidation and vote-rigging already in evidence in early voting.
Education is a wonderful thing.
Don’t you DARE comment here unless you’ve READ IT first.
