Yes We Did


This photo from the Times says it all. Amen. Finally. Something like justice. This is a beautiful moment.

But it's not over. This morning what pass for journalists in the United States are commenting that it was not the landslide some expected. Well, there's a reason for that — a nationwide Republican campaign to disenfranchise poor and minority reporters. Saxby Chambliss may win in Georgia as a direct result of this.

For those who think this is a "conspiracy theory", the Republican campaign of injustice has been systematically and extensively documented by many, including journalist Greg Palast, Bobby Kennedy Jr., the ACLU, the Center for Constitutional Rights, and many others.

And a pretty easy check of major media organizations shows that the confirmed cases of fraud and injustice are ones perpetrated by Republicans.

twice as many electoral votes seems like a landslide to me, when it seemed they were so close until recently.
I am in Spain and didn't get that much coverage last night, but at least it was unbiased coverage.
