End game

 We knew it would come down to this.

The Republicans can't win on the issues. The well of fear-mongering has run dry. Most Americans now realize that Barack Obama is, in fact, black.

So they're trying to steal it, like we knew they would. The long-expected voter purges have begun, and the GOP -- in the name of God and country, no doubt -- are trying to disenfranchise thousands of Americans. We're lucky here in Oregon, in that our vote-by-mail system is largely immune to this garbage. But in places like Georgia, Ohio, and Florida, the game is afoot.

To me, it doesn't get much dirtier than this -- if it looks like you're gonna lose the election, do your level best to make sure only the Right Kind of People vote.
