Quote of the day

From Paul Krugman's column in today's NY Times.

What is it about Mr. Gore that drives right-wingers insane?

Partly it’s a reaction to what happened in 2000, when the American people chose Mr. Gore but his opponent somehow ended up in the White House. Both the personality cult the right tried to build around President Bush and the often hysterical denigration of Mr. Gore were, I believe, largely motivated by the desire to expunge the stain of illegitimacy from the Bush administration.

Emphasis mine.

Enough said.

Krugman failed to mention the electoral college chose Bush,not the people, and the people didn't choose Gore either. The electoral college should remain as it is also.

If it weren't for the electoral college, rural America would have no voice in voting, and our federal election would be at the mercy of the voters in the large metropolises. :}
