THANK GOD FOR THE BRITISH PRESS
While we in America worry about terror alerts and watch our 401K shrink, Britian's Observer hired investigative journalist Gregory Palast to investigate the Florida Presidential vote. Yeah, I know. It's a done deal. The courts gave it to Bush. But if you're in a conspiracy frame of mind, check out this:

THE GREAT FLORIDA EX-CON GAME
How the “felon” voter-purge was itself felonious


Basically, says Palast - “Here’s how your President was elected: In the year leading up to the Presidential election, Katherine Harris and Jeb Bush removed tens of thousands of citizens from the voter rolls.  Harris claimed they were felons – but almost none were – though 54% were guilty of being African-American....”

Oops. Of course, we here in war-torn America can't be bothered with little details like that. I guess it's another liberal media conspiracy, huh? Luckily, Ms. Harris knows how to pour gas on the fire by writing a letter in response KATHERINE HARRIS SAYS PALAST 'TWISTED AND MANIACAL' . However, if she's going to go to all the trouble, she should at least deny the charges cleanly. Instead she provides a convoluted answer that sounds like something out of the Nixon White House.

(Props to the Blowtorch Monkey Armada for pointing out this item. See link to left.)

BTW - Tomorrow in July 4th and this Saturday starts a week of family vacation. Suburban Limbo will likely be in the summer doldrums for a while. But fear not. From breaks like this comes more content.
