Ohio challenge: Republican versus Democratic framing 


"If they were willing to stand in polls for countless hours in the rain, as many did in Ohio, than I can surely stand up for them here in the halls of Congress," Tubbs Jones said.
(via San Francisco Chronicle)


"There's a wise saying we've used in Florida the past four years that the other side would be wise to learn: Get over it," said Rep. Ric Keller, R-Fla.

Translation: Lay back and enjoy it.

At least for now, I think we won the framing on the Ohio challenge by standing on principle. Against the expectations of some even in the reality-based blogosphere though—blush—never Corrente.

As the Nation puts it:

The decision of US Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-California, to sign on to the objection raised Thursday by US Rep. John Conyers Jr. and other House Democrats to the counting of Ohio's electoral votes from the 2004 presidential election sent a powerful signal that at least some -- though certainly not most -- Washington Democrats are listening to the grassroots of the party.

Nice to see that new Senatorial War Room coordinating the attack on Gonzales and the Ohio Challenge and connecting the dots: Both are symptons of Republican lawlessness and quest for total power at any cost. Oh, wait...
