Posted on 06/05/2006 5:34:31 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
The sense of electoral victimhood among the Democrats is rapidly spreading from the kookie fringes like DUmmieland to the CENTER of the Democrat Party as evidenced by the recent Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. WHINE in Rolling Stoned Magazine about how the 2004 election was stolen (by recycling already discredited fantasies). Even though the "proof" offered by Kennedy and others of the kook fringe is laughable, the professional Democrats now realize they need to accept such "stolen election" fantasies" in order to keep their hard core support among the loonie left. We had a hint of it earlier when Mama T suggested that her Boy Toy had the 2004 election stolen from him. And now we have Al Gore REFUSING to answer a direct question put to him as to whether he thinks the 2000 election was stolen. Up until recently, Gore merely maintained that he really thought he won that election and was just trying to get a full count of the vote in Florida. However, Gore now implies by his NON-ANSWER that the 2000 election was STOLEN from him as you can see in this May 26 ISSUE of New York Magazine. Of course, the DUmmies have jubilantly lept upon Gore's refusal to answer that question as proof that Al Gore thinks the 2000 election was stolen as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Al Gore's scary statement on stolen elections." So let us now watch the DUmmies bask in the glow of Al Gore validating their electoral paranoia in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who won't be surprised if John Kerry soon hops aboard the "Election Was Stolen" bandwagon, is in the [brackets]:
Al Gore's scary statement on stolen elections
[Scary. Very scary the way is now pandering to the LOONY LEFT by implying his 2000 election was stolen from him.]
This is a little out of date, because it came out last week in New York Magazine's generally favorable portrait of Al Gore. It seems all the more relevant now that Bobby Kennedy's article has come out in Rolling Stone, and a mini-controversy has erupted over John Kerry's continuing refusal to agree that the election, at least in Ohio, was blatantly a violation of the Voting Rights Act, and probably stolen.
[Don't worry. We can soon expect John Kerry to begin pandering in the same way as Al Gore when he realizes that his 2008 Presidential campaign will get NOWHERE in the Democrat primaries unless he confirms the paranoid left in their electoral conspiracy theories.]
Al Gore has also been unwilling to make a definitive statement, but the response he gave the magazine was chilling, and at least explains how seriously he takes this issue, and why it might not be in the best interest of the country for a leader like himself to come out clearly in support of those who claim both elections were stolen.
[So instead Gore sends out the signal that he DOES believe the 2000 election by REFUSING to answer a question as to whether he thinks that election was stolen.]
I'd be very curious how DUers interpret this strange Gore quote:
In spite of that, Gore goes on, we won the popular vote and came within one Supreme Court justices vote of winning the election. So if that final decision had gone the other way, the question might well be, how did you guys pull it off?
Does he, like many Democrats, think the election was stolen?
Gore pauses a long time and stares into the middle distance. There may come a time when I speak on that, Gore says, but its not now; I need more time to frame it carefully if I do. Gore sighs. In our system, theres no intermediate step between a definitive Supreme Court decision and violent revolution.
Later, I put the question of Gores views on the matter to David Boies, his lawyer in the Florida-recount battle. He thought the courts ruling was wrong and obviously political, Boies says. So he considers the election stolen? I think he doesand hes right.
[Folks, this might surprise you but I have to THANK DUmmie HamdenRice for finding and highlighting this Gore refusal to answer a question as to whether he thinks the 2000 election was stolen as well as the information that his recount lawyer agrees that it was stolen as well as his belief that Gore shares the same fantasy. Somehow this information sort of slipped through the cracks and yet it SHOULD be BIG NEWS. So thanx to the DUmmies for putting this issue under the magnifying glass.]
"V" for Vendetta!!
["P" for Paranoia!]
I like Gore's statement.
[Actually non-statement. He DECLINED to answer a DIRECT question as to whether he thought the 2000 election was stolen which implies that he DOES think it was stolen.]
Of course it was stolen, who's got the balls to take it home?!!
[And thanx in large part to RFK, Jr's "Stolen Election" article in Rolling Stoned, any Democrat now who wishes to get nominated for President is going to have to publicly buy into your electoral delusion.]
Gave me chills when he said that. Do we need any more proof that the man gets it?
[It is proof that Gore wants to get your primary support.]
You are right -- he clearly gets it, and the quote from Bois suggests that he has privately told people he thinks the election was stolen. Is he afraid that if he comes out strongly, mobs with pitchforks will beseige DC?
[More like white coated guys with butterfly nets besieging his non-campaign HQ.]
Wow. Seems like Al smells the same putrid stench of fascism that most of us do.
[Wow! Seems like Al smells the same putrid stench of leftist paranoia that most of us are wallowing in.]
So I think I can even take a wild guess as to what he is holding back from saying: That what we experienced in 2000 was, properly speaking, a violent revolution from which we have not yet recovered.
[I would like to a wild guess as to what is Al Gore's DUmmie screen name.]
You must admit Kerry's nonplussed reaction to 2004, specifically that there was no substantive evidence of fraud in Ohio that would have changed the outcome of the election, has resurfaced again and again like a bad meal of tainted clams.
[The DUmmies are now TURNING on Kerry for not proclaiming that the 2004 election was stolen from him.]
Kerry is making cautious statements about election reform, but has publicly rebuked Mark Crispin Miller about Miller's contention that Kerry knew the election was stolen. Gore is basically saying that the election may have been stolen but for national security reasons, he has to craft a careful statement about it. And in the politics of leaks and spokespersons, Gore has freed his attorney to say, yes the election was stolen while even through his spokesmen, Kerry's message is basically, we can't know what the outcome would have been.
[Uh-Oh! This doesn't look good for Kerry. Unless he soon hops aboard the "Election Was Stolen" bandwagon, he can kiss his 2008 nomination goodbye.]
Gore fought election fraud through the Florida and US Supreme Courts and lost. After that, there was no remedy other than "violent revolution". Kerry did not exhaust his remedies; he didn't even try them.
[It would have meant taking an unwelcome break from the ski slopes of Davos.]
2000 was a bitter pill that continues to leave a bad taste in my mouth. I would dearly love the election of Al Gore in 2008 to the job he rightfully won in 2000, only this time he moves in to the White House. My wellbeing requires a reckoning.
[I have to give Al Gore credit for conducting a Non-Campaign Campaign. See, he gets TONS of publicity with his travelling Environment Shtick without having to get down to the dirty details of conducting a political campaign but still ends up gaining Democrat support for that very campaign. Al Gore is RUNNING by NOT running. He wants the Democrat Left (and that's pretty much ALL the Democrats) to BEG him to run and one way is by confirming their "Stolen Election" delusion.]
He should come out and declare himself the winner in 2000and denounce the Supreme Court's political decision. What does he have to lose? And, it will bring more attention the our unfair election process.
[A "Make A Wish" request for Al Gore. And he just might grant it.]
Let me know if you want on the DUmmie FUnnies PING List.
IN Before the Ping... Wahoooo!!!!
Top ten! Who da man?
"Oh, hell, yeah! TOP TEN, dawwwwwwwwwwwwgzzz -- !" :)
It is amazing how someone involved is so ignorant of the facts. Al Gore lost the first Supreme Court ruling 9-0 and the second on 7-2. The 5-4 decision was the remedy that ended the recount nonsense for the 7-2 ruling that declared Gore's selective recounts unConstitutional. Even if Gore won the 7-2 ruling, there is no evidence that Gore would have won the recount.
TOP 20! Bump for later.
14? I hope, please not 13
I've been really busy the past three days; I saw this DUmmie thread earlier, just after it started, and just for a few minutes.
Anybody know if the Bostonian Idiot had anything to say about the matter?
One of the FUn DUFU games is looking at the DUmmieland threads and then guessing which of them will be featured in the DUFUs.
I know you DUmmies who lurk here then run back to DU and talk about your bravery and "Smackdowns" hate this picture of algore. So, once again, here it is for your enjoyment.
But it is such a target rich envronment :)
Yeah, I know what you mean, about DUmmies posting threads hoping to be featured in the absolutely brilliant DUmmie FUnnies--but it seems the best policy to select the ones who DON'T want to be featured.
I'm sure the Bostonian Idiot is one of the latter.
And so as usual, keep up your always good work!
