    I have very mixed feeling about BH.  I recall seeing her on TV w/ Howard Dean in summer '04 and being fairly impressed by her.  I've heard things to the contrary since then.  As is exemplified by this diary, she tends to throw around a lot of scattershot allegations at times.

    All that being said, we must acknowledge that she raises valid questions that few others seem to be raising.  Prior to 11/00, I took, as an article of faith, the view that our electoral process was about as fair and as accurate as humanly possible.  I now know that I might as well believe that a fat man in a red suit brings my kids toys every Xmas.

    The fact that results were held back for hours in Cuellar's stronghold in Webb County just 2 days ago brought up some ugly memories from 2000 and 2004.  It's possible that everything was done properly there, and Cuellar fairly won a clear majority.   It's also possible that returns were deliberately w/held there until they knew how many votes they would need to ensure victory.

    We don't know which of those 2 possibilities are true, and, sadly, we will never know.  In light of their success in stealing the 2000 election, the Rethugs decided to institutionalize voter fraud.  I'd like to see others besides BH carrying the banner on this vital issue, but I'm more than willing to listen to her allegations w/ an open mind.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I see things that never were and ask why not?
