Now He Tells Us 

Tucked below the NYTimes' virtual fold, we read this bizarre statement from erstwhile candidate and former savior-in-waiting, John Kerry:
"Last year, too many people were denied their right to vote; too many who tried to vote were intimidated," Mr. Kerry said at an event sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts.
He cited examples of trickery. "Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday," Mr. Kerry said. "People are told in telephone calls that if you've ever had a parking ticket, you're not allowed to vote."
Gosh. "Denied their right to vote." Excuse me, Mr. Kerry, but where the fuck where you after the election when the people who believed in you were waiting to have their own knowledge of these activities given credence by your protests of the election results...protests, we know now, that never materialized. No, you just put your tail between your legs and slunk off into the night like a good little aparatchik and let these powermongers bulldoze their way through the electorate again, and despite all the folks trying to fight the good fight, here, and at Kos, and elsewhere, eventually people lost interest and yawned politely and said "oh, well, back to busines as usual", and Diebold and the men in black won the day.

Now that no possible difference can be made by your bland, weak-ass little protests, you feel free to voice your concern, and the Repugs counter with a predictable response:
"...it's disappointing that some Democrats are focused on rehashing baseless allegations more than five months after the election," said a committee spokeswoman, Tracey Schmitt."
Yes, it's disappointing, all right, but not because Schmitt puts on a doleful face and mourns the lost gravitas being accorded to the Chimp by his ungrateful hoi-polloi. It's disappointng because we thought we may have had a champion with balls, but all we got was another politician.
