The Elections, Sue Them

I keep hoping that there will be a significant victory and the past election becomes history. I don't think that it will happen, rather the system is now working under the Gore paradigm:

excerpt from Daniel Henninger's article:

Next Tuesday you get to vote for President. Next Wednesday, the lawyers get to decide who won.
Why get upset? We've allowed the lawyers to ruin most everything else in American life--from the practice of medicine to the practice of prayer. Might as well let them drive the entire political system over the cliff.

"Right now we have 10,000 lawyers out in the battleground states on Election Day, and that number is growing by the day." So Michael Whouley told the Associated Press last week. Mr. Whouley is commander in chief of the division of lawyers Mr. Kerry has drafted to invade the voting precincts of Ohio, Florida and any other state still inhabited by enough free-thinking Republicans and Democrats to make the election there close.

Bob Bauer, counsel to the Democratic National Committee, said last month: "Our SWAT teams . . . will have done nothing but prepare through the fall. We want to be able to send teams out to fight these wars simultaneously."

SWAT teams? These "wars?" As Al Davis, the political philosopher who runs the Oakland Raiders, might have described the current state of our politics: "Just sue, baby."
