Big Media Love Fest--Is It Fair to Voters?

Or as purported news service Reuters has it headlined:

Bush Brothers Love Fest--Is It Fair to Voters?

Well, you can see where this is going:

When President Bush campaigns in battleground Florida, it's usually at the side of his brother, popular Gov. Jeb Bush, accused by opponents of putting fraternal devotion ahead of fair elections.

Got any names Reuters? No, I didn't think so. After all, somebody said it and it's the seriousness of the charge more than any actual intent or evidence supporting ithe charge, right?

And as in 2000, when President Bush defeated former Vice President Al Gore by 537 votes in a protracted recount battle decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, Bush opponents accuse the governor of rigging the state election system to ensure his brother's victory.

Again, any possibility that we can face or question the accusers who are so free, or dare I say, liberal with their groundless accusations?

Democrats cite the election division's flawed list of suspected felons tagged for deletion from the voter rolls, which was scrapped after it proved to be full of errors and heavily weighted with likely Democratic voters.

Ah, it's Democrats making the accusations. But still, who exactly? And if the list was scrapped, how can it be evidence of a fixed election? And is it really part of Bush's nefarious plan if the law says that felons cannot vote and the felon demographic just happens to tend to vote overwhelmingly for Democrats?

They also cite the decision to put Ralph Nader on the ballot before a court settled a dispute over his eligibility.

Still no names, eh? Oh and see the post below about the necessity of actually being able to issue a ballot at some point, rather than holding all ballots up in the courts.

I think I may rename this blog Democrats Piss Me Off.
