Trying on my tinfoil hat: I made my way over to the Democrat National Committee Web site last week in the wake of the release of their report showing that no vote fraud occurred in Ohio.
This isn't about that. This is about channeling moonbats. You see, when I went to the DNC Web site, I encountered this graphic:
It's never happened before in U.S. history. Not even George Washington won "every state, every county, every precinct."
In fact, this never happens in free societies -- one party winning everything. Does anyone really doubt that no matter what they do or how hard they try, Republicans will never win San Francisco? Does anyone believe that Democrats could ever possibly win the electoral votes in Utah?
Based on the same paranoid mentality that prompted the Democrats' "study" of voting "irregularities" in Ohio, is there much doubt that the loonier fringe would look at a map colored completely red and the slogan "How Republicans can and will win every state, every county and every precinct" and start yelling "conspiracy!"
Now, I'd like to think that Democrats want to win votes in the court of public opinion -- but sometimes that doesn't seem to be completely true.
I don't really think there's a massive conspiracy -- mainly because Democrats aren't really stupid enough to post the fact that they're doing it on their Web site. However, if the parties were reversed, I've little doubt that the Kos Kidz and DUMB denizens would be peddling the most outrageous conspiracy theories.
