Brad it looks like you are needed in France.
The following report published a week before the French presidential run-off elections on May 6 point to the use of e-voting machines in several French cities. The potential for electoral fraud in the run-off elections --in which Nicolas Sarkozy won with a four point margin-- cannot be dismissed and should be the object of an independent inquiry in the cities where e-voting was used.

Goofus went to Yale. LIttle BUSH went to Yale. One of the funniest things I ever heard, living in New Haven and teaching college there, was when Big Bush was asked by a reporter what bugged him the most when reporters talk about his son. He said, "When they make him out to be stupid. He's not stupid. He went to YALE!"
Hahahahahahahahahahahahhahahhahhahaha! One of the funniest things I ever heard.

Why is it that elections, here or abroad, involving DREs - seem to also involve the conservative candidates winning?
I'm just sayin'...
My sympathies, to some degree, are with moderate people who once upon a time found themselves in the "Grand Old Party" (GOP) advocating a small federal government, advocating fiscally responsible government, advocating for the rights of the people ("freedom and liberty"), and advocating against the aggrandizement of power ("power corrupts").
Then, once upon a time, the Cheney / Bush fratboy front gang know as "the administration" turned their political world upside down. And like all folk who suddenly experience such a nightmare, they at first denied it. That was like hearing you have a serious disease but doing nothing about it.
This neoCon infestation into the party was allowed, by such DeLay, to get so widespread and deep that it did not at first appear to be "out of the norm", because everyone in the RNC was saying the same thing.
Then, like a frog being boiled so very, very, very slowly that it does not notice the temperature change, they realized they were being cooked. Cooked books, cooked "I can't recall remembering" testimony, cooked Iraq, cooked Iraqi's, cooked detainees, and cooked talking points marching in lockstep.
Then came a cooked party in the '06 election. The next day in a strange kneejerk Rummy went down. Libby went down, Ney went down, Abramoff went down, and many others went down. The GOP was exposed and is still being exposed as a Grab Of Power for Orweillian purposes.
Somehow the minds of some of them did not go dark. In some places the lights were on and somebody was home. Newsweek illuminates some of this mystery:
Susan Eisenhower is an accomplished professional, the president of an international consulting firm. She also happens to be Ike's granddaughter—and in that role, she's the humble torchbearer for moderate "Eisenhower Republicans." Increasingly, however, she says that the partisanship and free spending of the Bush presidency—and the takeover of the party by single-issue voters, especially pro-lifers—is driving these pragmatic, fiscally conservative voters out of the GOP. Eisenhower says she could vote Democratic in 2008, but she's still intent on saving her party. "I made a pact with a number of people," she tells NEWSWEEK. "I said, 'Please don't leave the party without calling me first.' For a while, there weren't too many calls. And then suddenly, there was a flurry of them. I found myself watching them slip away one by one."
(Newsweek, emphasis added). The neoCons who have hijacked the GOP but who are stubborn to the point of stupidity, are even saying they are going to be open minded in September:
The House Republican leader said Sunday that GOP support could waver if President Bush's Iraq war policy does not succeed by the fall.
(Huffpo Article). Oh, a timeline now for the neoCon "minds"?
By September it will be too late ... by several years ... and the neoCons, by then, will have done so much damage to the GOP, America, and Iraq, that it will take generations to heal. If it ever heals.

This primer is brain free - Yale is the home of the numb skull superstitious, highly ritualized, religeous Skull and Bones. Only a dull conformist moron would join such an organization.......

The French thing...what are the odds that the conservative candidate always wins in close votes on electronic machines?
The thing that strikes me, is that it is a FACT that the CIA has messed around in other country's voting, so why is it such a stretch that people don't believe it's happening here? It's called a pattern of history of doing it. Why is this so hard for some people to believe? To me, it's hard to believe it's NOT happening in this country! It's obvious.
Here's a headline you'll never see: "French liberal candidate wins 51%-49% on new e-vote machines."
Well, it is unknown for sure, what really went on there, but it's following the playbook, that's for sure. And the French don't put up with stuff like that, like we do in our country.

Exactly, Dredd, couldn't agree with you more! The "self-proclaimed" conservatives have taken over the GOP.
i remember highlights mag, and i remember goofus as being the mean spirited little republican, and gallant the sweet-faced weak-sister who everybody hated for being a sweet-faced weak-sister...
i mean, you got the pics mixed up...
but i could be wrong; it has been decades...
