    But got an error (timeout?).

    You can bet that the anarchist TPers are working hard at spamming or hacking that website.

    It's just 9am. Within hours, the right wing noise machine talking point of the day will be "another Obama failure - healthcare.gov not ready for prime time"

    It's just sad. I'm so sick of it all I can't even argue about it anymore.

    Maybe the only answer is secession? Who needs this insanity? Let the red states create their own wingnut libertarian utopia and see how well that goes. All Americans who disagree with their selfish ideology should move to blue states and refuse to provide any products or services to those red states. We'll see how long the "no gubment in my life" states-rights Articles of Confederation crowd holds up. They'd be back to slavery in a matter of months.

      Wait a while and see if they get it straightened out. You aren't the only one having problems.

      Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behavior does.

    •  Just like 2002 (and maybe 2000) (0+ / 0-)

      The Republicans signed a consent decree for a campaign to overwhelm the Democratic phone banks in a New Hampshire Senate election in 2002.

      I strongly suspect that they did the same in Florida in 2000, but weren't caught. If the banks hadn't been jammed, I think that Democratic county leaders in Palm Beach and Duval counties would have been able to warn their voters that there were specific problems with the voting machines in those counties, and if they had learned how widespread the problems were sooner, they could have saved enough votes (they only needed 538) to elect Gore.
