…you don’t have to go far on the internet to find one of my hats on a young lady’s head.

And speaking of this young lady’s head it is definitely screwed on right because she tells us this:

Bob (Belvedere) makes the great point that we don’t just need to mathematically get more votes than the Democrats; we need to win by enough so that they can’t steal elections from us. (If you heard the wailing and gnashing of teeth in the 2000 election, just consider that it was the frustration of Democrats who were dying to steal that election and were furious – furious! – that the rule of law intervened.)

Now, just a thought: beyond campaigning our butts off for the next 26 days, why don’t we all be poll-watchers on Election Day? Candidates have a legal right to send representatives to examine the ballot boxes before polling commences (ensuring that the boxes are empty and set to zero) and check each voter against a list of registered voters. It’s easy, low-key, and very helpful to both candidates and the integrity of the system.

Lyndon Johnson used to say if you do everything you will win. Now he was referring to tactics beyond the legal but the principle is correct, the moment you relax that’s when the race can be lost, and if we blow this chance it will be our own fault.

    -Thanks for the link, DTG. Credit for the thought, though, goes to Quin Hillyer.

    -I think we should rename the ladie’s section of the alliance to The Axis Of Pete.

    As we know from Mary Connaughton and Christine O’Donnell, good things (like winning primaries) happen to women who sport your fedoras. :)
