Voter Fraud! Voter Fraud!

I don't generally blog about politics unless it involves a celebrity, (hence the name "Celebrity Heroes" but this is something that really needs to be looked at and HARD! It's November 7th - the day of THE mid-term election of the century. Will Bush finally be impeached and his family get the comeuppance they deserve? Or will the RethugliKKKants steal this one too? I don't have much to fear in my own backyard, as I live in the lovely true-blue state of Minnesota. Proud home of Paul Wellstone, Eugene McCarthy and the judge that made Roe vs. Wade a household couple of names! This election makes me really wish I lived in Minneapolis' 5th District where they are going to elect the one and only Muslim House member! Isn't that exciting? See San Francisco and New York? We have people of color in our neck of the woods too! And I bet he'll get big stars here like Danny Glover, Harry "Day-Oh!" Belafonte, and that hunky dictator Hugo Chavez, (step aside Cindy Sheehan! He's all mine!) I'm simply giddy with anticipation.

But even though it's only dinnertime here in Minnesota as I write this, (12:36pm to be exact) I've smelled something around the blogosphere. It smells like a big sweaty, hairy armpit with some pachuli mixed in: it smells like voter fraud. See, while some may disagree in my lovely little blue state, we can still be civil, (by civil I mean make a point of not talking to one another,) in public. Not so in other places. The libby blogs are already reporting that this election - our historical revolution - was stolen ALREADY. Of course it had to happen, right? Why did we think Bush & Co. would stop now? Bush & Co conspired with Fox News and all of the other uber conservative media, (ABC, CBS, CNN, The Star Tribune, The Pioneer Press, The Washington Post, Boys Life, Time, Newsweek - the lot!) to paint the Republican party as the party of purity, the party of honoring the military, (even if they are a bunch of stupid thugs who don't deserve it! Speak truth to power, Kerry!) and the greatest party whoever lived. Why - you woulda thought that Abraham Lincoln was a Republcian or something! My Gosh! Nice try!

But I hate to tell ya, IF the Rethugs take the House and the Senate or the House or the Senate - you're right to smell a rat, people. They're already turning away undocumented Mexicans who aren't registered to vote! AND word has it that they are not letting the pre-registered dead people vote in New York! So, buckle up Dems. Because if we win, we won. But if we lost we know it's fraud!
