I Got a Serious Jones On 

(via NYT, sorry)

Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., signed a challenge mounted by House Democrats to Ohio's 20 electoral votes, which put Bush over the top. By law, a protest signed by members of the House and Senate requires both chambers to meet separately for up to two hours to consider it. Lawmakers are allowed to speak for no more than five minutes each.

``I have concluded that objecting to the electoral votes from Ohio is the only immediate way to bring these issues to light by allowing you to have a two-hour debate to let the American people know the facts surrounding Ohio's election,'' Boxer wrote in a letter to Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Ohio, a leader of the Democratic effort.

Entering the second hour or so as I write this, listening to C-Span. Very educational to note the voices saying "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, shut up, move on, nothing to see here."

They (very nearly) all say that this whole objection is based on "conspiracy theories." And that it is "frivolous" because "it won't change the outcome."

They (very nearly) all cite some county election official (who invariably things the whole thing went just swell) and manage to mention the fact that this official is African-American.

And they always note that this disgraceful spectacle is being perpetrated by the "Democrat" party. We all know what that means, right?

Give 'em hell Rep. Tubb-Jones. You go on giving them hell.
