So what, Do we just ignore the ballots that were… [is this really worth the trade -“instant gratification vs. the truth”]

not received in time for the election, you know the ones from our troops overseas, you know the ballots that were now printed by Sept. 20, which by the way is the date the ballots were due back, you know post marked by midnight of Sept. 20th.

I realize I should accept this win, but as usual, we Americans love instant gratification, even when it comes to one of our most sacred rights as a United States Citizen. I know after the numbers are crunched and the first polling offices are closed, the media dashes in offer us instant affirmation, you know a pat on that back. ignore

You know if there is any situation that would warrant an undeniable answer, it is this one… the answer that would render a “I would like to sleep on it, get back to you in the morning. I guess the Republic of Venezuela, President Hugo Chávez Frías is elated, as his got what he wanted.

reminds me of the Carter / Reagan Election on Nov.4 1981when wanted Reagan in before our hostages could be released….. [ In the election Reagan easily defeated Jimmy Carter by 44 million votes to 35 million. The Republican Party also won control of the Senate for the first time in 26 years. According to Mansur Rafizadeh, the former U.S. station chief of SAVAK, the Iranian secret police, CIA agents had persuaded Khomeini not to release the American hostages until Reagan was sworn in. In fact, they were released twenty minutes after his inaugural address.]

    Perhaps the details will emerge for more ponder fodder.
    But, I do know
    that the populace wasn’t going to tolerate
    “hanging chads”
    again
    and recounts and delays this time.
    Decision
    could have been the slogan head.

    Suck it up, Finn.
    It is done.

    And truth? What about Gore?
