Let’s Do It Again!

How much fun was the 2000 presidential election?  It just doesn’t get any better than election by litigation.  At my house, election night means putting your diplomacy hat on, and by the time Bush v. Gore limped to the finish line, we had both had about enough of those fucking hats.  However, it may be time to get them out of mothballs, because if the November 4 presidential election is as close as it promises to be, we may be looking at another situation in which we’re within the margin of litigation and headed to the courts.  Even if it’s not close enough to reasonably require the judiciary to make the final call, who’s to say that the increasingly large armies of lawyers standing by won’t try to make the case for a second go ’round in the courts?  Certainly not election expert Lawrence Norden, who made the case  (audio link, and a long one at that, so be forewarned) on NPR’s Talk of the Nation yesterday that we are likely headed for another coronation by litigation.

High five, America!

    I fear our lovely country has entered a time when no president will take office prior to stop before the high court. Makes one wonder if the office of president is really relevant or just a prize over which lobby hounds fight….hmmm.

    High five, indeed. Who needs powdered wigs when you have the US Supreme Court!?

    I saw McCain has a “bounce” based on two polls (one of which was taken on the Internet) so who knows, but I’m banging my head in frustration at the stupidity of America. Although again, it’s not the popular vote that counts, it’s the state vote that counts. And Obama should be in pretty decent shape there, but still. I pay too much attention to polls.
