Indeed, the extent of the GOP's effort to rig the vote shocked even the most experienced observers of American elections. ''Ohio was as dirty an election as America has ever seen,'' Lou Harris, the father of modern political polling, told me. ''You look at the turnout and votes in individual precincts, compared to the historic patterns in those counties, and you can tell where the discrepancies are. They stand out like a sore thumb.''
The Latino Edge had called this one early. With the GOP in total meltdown, Democrats need to practice hypervigilance and be abnormally paranoid. You see, in 2004, the Democrats made a fatal mistake. They relaxed. Thinking they had the elections in the bag, they failed to keep watch at their backdoor. And that's how the thieves sneaked in. Hopefully this time around, Ohio will be scrutinized with a mother hen's eyeball.
Here's one of the buzz words for the November 2006: Diebold. Here it is again: Diebold.
If you see that word on your voting machine, be very, very afraid.
